strange double bills
14 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

How strange - the previous reviewer remembers this on a double bill with Warhol's "Bad", and I saw it in Leicester Square, London, on a double bill with "The Hills Have Eyes" in 1977. Those were the days of creative programming gone mad. All I remember is being slightly irritated by what I thought was a rather self-conscious attempt at a half hour of "Art". But having said that, I was somewhat the worse for a bevy of Scotch and was impatient for the Wes Craven movie. I was also young and ... well.. in many ways a self-consciously "Arty" youth. So work out the psychology. I always liked Peter Barkworth's work, endearing and low-key, very British, like that other fine character actor Geoffrey Keen. I remember once talking to Barkworth in a Hampstead supermarket and complementing him on his work in "Telford's Change". He was of course suitably modest and charming. Gone, and not forgotten.
