Night Must Fall (1964) - Open, Danny, Olivia Opening from director Karel Reisz, screenplay by Clive Exton from the sensational Emlyn Williams play, first filmed with Robert Montgomery in 1937, introduces Susan Hampshire whom we’ll learn is Olivia, and co-producer Albert Finney as Danny, hiding a body, Ron Grainer’s score doing much of the lifting, in Night Must Fall, 1964, from MGM-British studios.
Night Must Fall (1964) - Have A Look At The Police Danny (Albert Finney), whom we know is responsible for the body the police are now searching for in the nearby pond, has just begun working as a handyman for Mrs. Branson, employer of his pregnant maid girlfriend, and mother of not-charmed Olivia (Susan Hampshire), in Night Must Fall, 1964, directed by Karel Reisz.
Man In The Wilderness (1971) - Zach Fought Against Life John Huston as Captain Henry, leader of the hunting expedition, instructs Lowrie (Dennis Waterman), being left behind to monitor the presumed death of bear-attack victim Zach (Richard Harris, experiencing a flashback), along with the less patient Fogerty (Percy Herbert), in Man In The Wilderness, 1971, based on the same story asThe Revenant, 2015.
Man In The Wilderness (1971) - Sorrow Never Helped Anyone Precisely the scene made famous with Leonardo DiCaprio in Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu’s Academy Award-winner The Revenant, 2015, based roughly on the same uncorroborated story, of trapper Hugh Glass, Richard Harris in the lead role, attacked by a bear near the Upper Missouri, ca. 1820, in Man In The Wilderness, 1971.
Man In The Wilderness (1971) - I Should've Been There Finally regaining consciousness, left for dead by his hunting expedition companions along the Upper Missouri, Richard Harris as Zach Glass recalls his wife Grace (Prunella Ransome), and tries to improve his condition, in Man In The Wilderness, 1971, directed by Richard C. Sarafian.
Wise Blood (1979) - That Makes Me A Bastard We know that Sabbath Lily (AmyWright), daughter of a phony street preacher, is determined to seduce novice anti-Jesus Christian preacher Hazel (Brad Dourif),in director John Huston's Wise Blood, 1979, from the Flannery O'Connor novel.
Wise Blood (1979) - Before I Met The Prophet The relatively normal scam-artist preacher Hoover Shoates (Ned Beatty) extends professional courtesy to firebrand Hazel Motes (Brad Dourif), who isn't having any, in Wise Blood, 1979, directed by John Huston from the Flannery O'Connor novel.
Wise Blood (1979) - Gone To Become An Angle Discharged veteran Hazel Motes (Brad Dourif) finds the grave of his grandfather (played by director John Huston), at the family farm, then decides to go to town, early in Wise Blood, 1979, from the Flannery O'Connor novel.
Brannigan (1975) - Smaller Than The Statue Of Liberty Chicago cop John Wayne (title character) arrives at Heathrow for an extradition, a hit-man (Daniel Pilon) maybe on the same plane, greeted by Scotland Yard's Ms. Thatcher (Judy Geeson), plus a brief bit with villain Larkin (John Vernon) and lawyer (Mel Ferrer), in Brannigan, 1975.
Romantic Englishwoman, The (1975) - By The Way I'm A Poet At home in England, cynical writer Lewis (Michael Caine), with his wife Elizabeth (Glenda Jackson, title character), raising the possibility of using her recent trip to a German spa as material for his novel, in Joseph Losey’s The Romantic Englishwoman, 1975, co-written by Tom Stoppard.
Brannigan (1975) - Knock Knock Modern enough opening, interrupting the credits, Ralph Meeker as the Chicago captain supervising cop John Wayne, title character, about to turn 70, who casually thumps a counterfeiter (Arthur Batanides), in the fairly profitable, mostly London-based police drama Brannigan, 1975.
Brannigan (1975) - Spot Of Lunch? John Wayne, Chicago cop and title character visits the genuine Garrick Club in London’s West End, where we discover his contact Sir Charles is Richard Attenborough (who was then CBE, so not yet “Sir” himself), mostly agreeing about his extradition mission, in Brannigan, 1975.
