I've just bought This is my street on dvd. I saw this on Talking pictures a few months ago. It's a great underrated movie that Ian made in 1964. A kind of kitchen-sink drama, much like A mind of loving. Ian gave a terrific performance in this. It was nice to see Mike Pratt and Annette Andre in this film, a few years before their more famous collaboration.



interesting poster.....well done.....btw, of everyone who commented on this thread, what program and/or/film do you feel is Ian's best performance, etc ?

Best performance? I haven't seen them all, but his best dramatic performance would have to be in The Hill. For laughs, I'd say Live now pay later. Ian was very convincing in both of these.

Live now pay later is on youtube. The picture quality isn't top notch, a bit wavy in places, but it's watchable enough. It's a great film. Enjoy! Smile

I checked it out...(you tube) and it's a keeper......MAN, I would love some outfit like kino-lober, arrow, criterion, etc remaster it, and put it out on DVD or
Blu-Ray...especially with some extras....damn, maybe they have..I'll begin the search....have they put it out in the UK ??

No, not according to find-dvd.co.uk. A search brings up the fact that dodgy off-air 1980s Channel 4 broadcasts are available (presumably pirate DVD-Rs) but they're worse than YouTube, and no extras of course!

Putting Ian's name in as an actor search on find-dvd.co.uk does bring up some interesting things I didn't know were out like the complete Jemima Shore Investigates (he plays her boss), The Lotus Eaters, and Polanski's "Repulsion".

There's a review of Jemima Shore here but it sounds like it might be a bit depressing for Hendry fans. https://www.thedigitalfix.com/film/dvd_review/jemima-shore-investigates-the-complete-series/ That said I saw a couple when I was young and quite enjoyed them.

Talking Pictures TV in the UK is showing this underrated gem (on its Encore "catch-up service") - written by and directed by Brian Clemens, music by Laurie Johnson, co-produced by Albert Fennell, and introduced tonight by its star Caroline Munro (who says Clemens was a real mentor to her).

Packed with Avengers actors like John Carson (who IMHO is one of the best actors Britain ever produced), John Hollis, John Cater (not all Avengers actors have to be called John, but it helps) and Wanda Ventham, and of course this gentleman, without whom there'd be no Avengers at all...



It's a much nicer, more vibrant print than the awful one on YouTube, worth a look if you're in the UK - it's free!

It's about 4 years since Tunnel of fear had a dvd release. With Girl on the trapeze that makes 2 Dr Keel episodes they've discovered since the millenium. A grand total now of three and a third episodes. Surely there are more season 1 episodes hiding out there somewhere. Obviously some were live so we'll never see those. I can't remember now how many were recorded to tape, but Tunnel of fear was discovered in a private collection. What can be done by Avengers fans to encourage private collectors and tv stations around the world to have a good root around to see what's hiding? I'm sure I'm not the only fan who can't wait to see more Dr Keel episodes. Very Happy

I couldn't have stated it any better...and I'm hoping more will turn up...a good example...the pilot episode of LEAVE IT TO BEAVER, (1957-1963) well, the original first pilot..with a different Ward, and Wally, thought be long lost...was found a few years ago, in pristine shape film wise, in a warehouse in New Jersey. among a bunch of film in cans, etc...So, I'm hoping either a collector comes forth, or somewhere in the world, some material turns up...much like the long lost Beaver pilot...

Actually we could. Even though transmitted live, they were recorded off telerecording apparatus as they went out! (And later in consideration for a "best of the Avengers" mini-season for London which had missed this part of the initial northern run). Girl on the Trapeze was one of these. I think there were nine in all. I recommend McGinlay and Hayes' brilliant book on the first season if you want to know more about this: "The Strange Case of the Missing Episodes - The Lost Stories of the Avengers Series 1"

Correct, Franky. There were seven episodes broadcast live, but they were all recorded off TX, and a memo dated 30 March 1962 proposes a replay season of all of them, and the two that followed, to the London area, which had never seen those 9 episodes (London showed the first two episodes, then skipped 9 to catch up to the the national syndication - if I can call it that). All 26 episodes were recorded to tape.

That's good news, so potentially we might see all of season 1 one day. I wish tv companies and collectors would have a thorough search, but realistically we just have to wait and see what turns up. I hope it's in our lifetime Exclamation
