fun little film

“The original novel [Dumb Witness] was dedicated to her [Agatha Christie’s] own wire-haired terrier - ‘To dear Peter,’ it read, 'most faithful of friends and dearest of companions. A dog in a thousand.’
I felt exactly the same way about the terrier in our film. He captivated me from the moment I set eyes on him. The little dog, whose real name was actually Snubby, became my dear friend. [..] My now ever-expanding fan club wrote to tell me how much they enjoyed it [the episode], so they also told me, the sales of wire-haired terriers shot up exponentially after it was shown for the first time in March 1996.”

great tv recommendations: detectorists 
↳ "All we turn up these days is litter and ring pulls. This is the land of the Saxons. I want to discover where they buried their warriors and their kings. Instead of where they had their snacks and soft drinks?“

SO TWEEKS NOT BEATING UP MARK ZUCKERBERG OR APART OF THEIR SCHEME AT ALL WHATS UP

unpopular (?) opinion: i freaking love “what’s my name” (and think it’s slightly better than “ways to be wicked”)

That’s not the way you walk in real life, is it? Neal Caffrey is one of the few characters on television where you would remark on the way he walks.

No, my god. I wish I was that kind of peacock. Yeah, I locked myself in our guest room for about – I would say like 2 or 3 weeks working on that. And then I would walk around my block and the house. I only had one suit to my name when I got this job – maybe two. And I would put it on and walk around my block. I’m sure I looked like a complete loon in L.A. But I would walk around just figuring out how he moved through the world. We hadn’t even filmed the pilot, but I knew a lot of it was going to play in masters and us walking around together, so I figured I should figure out that part of his physicality. - Matt Bomer [13:00]

The Next Ten Minutes

Pairing: Sebastian x Reader
Words:  944

This is just a little fluffy Sebastian thing for you guys that I wanted to do. Kinda based off “The Next Ten Minutes” from movie “The Last Five Years.”



          “Hey, Y/N,” Chris Evans smiled warmly when you walked into the bar where the cast of The Avengers was meeting for a little fun after filming.

           “Hey,” you grinned, “How was filming today?”

           “It was good,” he said, “How was your day?”

           “Not too bad,” you said, “Just the usual day of filming a TV show,” you giggled, “Where’s that boyfriend of mine?”

           “Said he’d be here in a few,” Chris said, “Not sure what he was doing.”

           You sat down at the table with him, “Well, I guess I’ll hang out with you until he gets here then,” you said.

           “I don’t mind that at all,” he smiled.

MORE favourite dead not-American actors: an Advent Calendar

Day 7: Richard Attenborough

It’s a source of frequent amusement to me that one of the most decent of people, beloved by family and colleagues and indeed generations of filmgoers, is so very adept at playing the worst kind of character. Of course, he can be found being the best of englishmen (The Great Escape, for example) or really quite adorable (his tiny role in A Matter of Life and Death), but it’s the weasels and cowards, the cocky-but-spineless, the criminal spivs, and of course the really nasty little psychopathic murderers, where you find his best work. 

That someone of his standing should take on (and finance) the grimy, repellant, sleazy world of 10 Rillington Place is testament to his dedication to film. His own directorial projects lean too far into sentimentality for me, but his acting work is ruthlessly devoid of it. HIs roles - especially later in his career - are often grubby and unglamorous, dirty little men with small lives and no idea of honour. His earlier roles often find him out of his depth, cringing and malleable, played upon by stronger personalities. And yet he’s always engaging to watch, and often oddly likeable. 

Favourite Role: Pinky in Brighton Rock (1947) - a rare occasion when my fave is also a thoroughly unpleasant character. It’s a corker of a film, with great casting all the way down, a script by Graham Greene (from his book) full of humour and zip, amazing cinematography, and a real atmosphere of gone-to-seed seasideness. Pinkie is terrible and magnetic, and Dickie has never been better. 

Another good place to start: He’s super spivvy in The League of Gentlemen (1960) which is a refreshingly cynical post-war heist film, stuffed full of great actors of which Dickie is one of the best. Also worth a watch is London Belongs To Me (1948) which is one of his early led-astray-into-crime-through-greed-and-spinelessness roles. It’s a gem of a film, unsurprisingly as it’s a Sidney Gilliat film that also stars Alastair Sim at his best.
