Creamguide(Films) Commentaries: The Box of Delights (3/3)

boxofdelights03

It’s CHRISTMAS! And here to tap and unwrap is the final instalment of Chris, Craig and Jack talking a load of hoary old bobbins while THE BOX OF DELIGHTS plays in the background. We suggest it is the perfect accompaniment to any number of cliches about peeling sprouts and will most certainly be preferable to ‘jokes’ about Willesden on Radio 2. So it’s a Merry Christmas from us and a Happy New Year from them. Goodnight!

    The actor playing Arnold of Todi is Philip Locke, best known probably for his role as villainous thug Vargas in Thunderball, who gets pinned to a palm tree with a harpoon-gun thingy. He was also the villain in Codename – Icarus and appeared in Doctor Who – Four to Doomsday, replaced Eric Dodson as Banyard in the film of Porridge, and played the Prime Minister in Fellini’s And The Ship Sailed On.

    Every year the kids, the present Mrs Pearce and I watch ‘Box’ as soon as December rocks up. This year as usual we had it polished off before we reached double digits, but I had to sit through it again with a commentary delivered by my favourite Christmas listing magazine folding reminiscensers. And boy, am I glad I did. Apart for the length of time it took the ensemble to remember Jonathan Cohen’s surname and a lack of closure on the Pat Troughton anecdote, it was probably worth the three hours. The legacy is, however, that I now when reading Creamguide, my inner voice now has a Scottish accent and drops F and C bombs like there’s no tomorrow. Honestly, Creamguide (Films), do you kiss your Creamguide (Films) (Mums’) lips with those mouths?

    Wasn’t the final episode aired later, on Christmas Eve night, shortly before a “Talons” like, Disney movie about a missing dinosaur?

    Wasn’t Julian Chagrin the R White’s SECRET LEMONADE DRINKER? Nicolas is his brother, and was Quillam in Doctor Who – Vengeance on Varos.

    Listening to this again. Realised Stephens and Bill Wallis are reunited in War and Remembrance. Which is sadly far, far too long for a commentary, as it has a fucking immense cast – Rhys Davis, Blessed, Mitchum, the Great British Berkoff, Robert Hardy, Johnny Sconney Gielgud… THe WInds of War too.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2903548/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 Parliamo Italiano is the name of a short by Yarra “RIngo” Sumerak – http://www.ioncinema.com/news/film-festivals/shults-krisha-hellers-teenage-girl-haynes-safe-part-of-8th-wassaic-project-film-fest, with Michelle Sims (the Mysteries of Laura), star of Insidious, by X Files’ Jerry Schram and Kristen Lewis (from I Origins and Left Unsaid by INdiewire’s Nelson George) and Allie Schulz, of Sam and the Grease reality TV. Sam featured Stacy Keach, Sean Kleir, Brett McCaffrey, Natalie Knepp and Tom “Turtle Island” Pelphrey.
    Keach was in Luther – with Robert Stephens, so it all connects.

    Pelphrey is seemingly involved in this http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1251740/?ref_=tt_rec_tti, as well as the work of Robocop 2’s Michael Medeiros, not the Canadian actor, not the one in, or Steve Buscemi’s Parting Glances or a John Kerry documentary.

    ANother perennial was the work of the National Film Board of Canada, of people like Rick KLassen, Norman McClaren, documentaries, animations, anything that’d fill the schedule.

    Iron Man 2 features a Liam O’Donnell, but not the NI actor or the interviewwee of my friend Mike Haberfelner’s pal Loren “Dark Military” Lepre’s doc Pennsylvania Hardcore.
