Supposedly Tarantino's inspiration for the briefcase in "Pulp Fiction".

Ralph Meeker is an underrated actor. He's terrific in "The Naked Spur" too.

'What’s in the box?’ is probably my favourite Mcguffin, though few have done it as well as Kiss Me Deadly - it says something about declining standards of education that even a pulp b-movie had classical overtones back then. 


Meeker is superb as you say. Lots of good performances, though, including Cloris Leachman and Gaby Rodgers. We all know what happened to Cloris, but I can’t recall seeing Gaby in anything else...

I'll be boring and go with a film that might not be a great classic, but one I tend to watch around this time most years -Battle of Britain

one scene I can't find on YouTube, and it's very brief, when Susannah York's WAAF S/O Harvey is stopped by Station Commander Kenny More about her husband, Colin (Chris' Plummer) being shot down. Goodwin's music helps but the clincher is when after More tells her she can get a posting near her husband (Plummer having spent all film badgering her to do just that), she bluntly asks:
"Is he badly burned?"
More's face says it all. Slight moistness to the eyes, tightening of the jaw (stiff uppers as Leslie Phillips would say) and no words.

But otherwise, this scene earlier (where Plummer's raw recruits give it to the Germans over the North Sea, culminating in Goodwin's theme triumphantly kicking in)



Watching Bridge Too Far the other day there's a couple that have always lingered in the memory. Frost's capture at the bridge (being given chocolate that should've been dropped to him, by Max Schell), the human roadblock, the capture of Nijmegen Bridge (Hardy Kruger's incredulous expression and Addison's music as XXX Corps race over) and Connery's scene with Bogarde at the end. Urquhart in reality probably was close to striking Browning.

I believe that Belgium actually had the highest number of pilots outside of the Commonwealth and Eastern-Europe in the Battle of Britain. Which is odd considering how tiny we are and how relatively small our air force was. Certainly you would have expected the French to have provided significantly more pilots.
