I liked Patrick McGoohan on screen, he had an intensity and presence, an essence of unpredicatbility and suppressed emotion that would have made him a very different Jimmy Bond to Sean Connery. More Daniel Craig in style I think.
One film worth finding is Hell Drivers from ’57 where he plays a thoroughly mean truck driver in amongst an amazing cast of familiar names at an early stage in their carreers.
The Prisoner, Captain James T Kirk and The Doctor (Tom Baker incarnation of course) will always be my ultimate power trio, easily giving a doing to Blondie, Angel Eyes and Tuco or Cream.
I’ve had press packs landing on the doormat reminding me of what’s coming up for Spring/Summer ’09. Keen (review of long term test of mens and wummins Voyageurs and Aroyos coming up in a few weeks) have some new shoes with grippy soles and I’ll be reviewing the Oregon PCT’s soon enough. Yes, I’ve been wearing boots.
Petzl have revamped a whole rake of stuff, a reaction to everyone else catching up? Good news for us anyway.
And, I’ve been shopping. There’s a few bits and pieces that I just had to have, including…wait, that’s the mail in.
Alright! a bag of bright blue tent pegs and purple dyneema cord. More later.
