There are a number of literary references in Seven Days to Noon: Among the jottings on Professor Willingdon's notes -- "The wicked beareth rule" is from the Bible, Proverbs 29:2 (...when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn) and "Thus with a mighty fall shall Babylon the great city be cast down" Revelation 18:21; "Dark, dark, dark, amid the blaze of noon" comes from John Milton's Samson Agonistes, a play about the biblical character, Samson, who is granted the power to destroy the temple and kill all the Philistines (and himself). The professor later quotes Revelation 6:4, "The horse came forth, the red horse, and to him that sat thereon was given to take the peace from the earth. And there was given unto him a great sword." The speaker in Hyde Park says "There shall be wars and rumors of wars." Nearly identical words are found in Matthew 24:6, Mark 13:7 and the Book of Mormon, 2 Nephi 25:12. A man carries a sandwich board quoting "The wages of sin is death," again from the Bible, Romans 6:23. See more »
The police notice about Willingdon is 100% accurate as to his height, complexion , eye colour etc. yet can only provide "Age about 60". It also notes he has a scar on his left shin, whilst his security details note "Nil identification marks". See more »
An excellent suspense thriller! Kindly old Prof Bullington (Barry Jones) gives the British government an ultimatum- unless they cease all atomic testing by the weekend, he will set off an A-Bomb in the center of London. Andre Morell heads the task force to find "the needle in one helluva haystack." Done in a documentary style that shoves the details and urgency of a great manhunt onto the audience. However, the human element of the story (i.e what Bullington's daughter has to go through, the dear sweet ol' actress Bullington holds captive, and the mass evacuation of London) is not lost for a millisecond. Superb acting (Especially by Morell and Jones) and writing. Do not miss!!
