Words AND Pictures

That Film. We've seen the faithful visuals - the worst thing that can happen is that the dialogue is equally faithful.

'Purple' is one thing on the page, written in the mid 80s when there was nothing better around, and OK YES it sort of suits the portentous story and pompous characters - but on screen, i don't know. rereading the damn thing i was struck that the dialogue just doesn't go 1:1 on to tv/film dialogue. it's not going to, it would test really badly with all but the people who have it memorised already.

hi - i'm on LJ. and just wanted to post the pic above

That Picture: Genius on so many levels!
martinskidmore showed me the memorial zine they'd put together for their mate steve which included the cast list for Carry on Watching, which had friedslice and braisedbywolves in hysterics...
I'll try to remember to type it up and post it later - I was in on the conversation which produced the list, which kept us all amused for hours. Good grief, that would have been almost 20 years ago!
