The Strange Affair (David Greene, 1968)
« on: 22 Jan 2013 - 21:27 »



Michael York stars as Peter Strange a rookie copper who gets embroiled in a relationship with a besotted underage girl called Fred (Susan George) as well as accidentally getting mixed up in pornography and gang related drug dealing. The latter seeing him have his cheeks ventilated with a power drill.

To say more would spoil things for the first time viewer. Recommended, fans of Susan George will be all a quiver with her nude scenes - then shamefaced when they realise she's only 15 in the film...  :-*

Where's your copy from Jonny? I got mine from a guy in Brazil who ran a cable station. Sadly like yours it isn't widescreen.

It's an .avi that I downloaded. Not sure of the source, it's got print damage but must have been telecined for TV or home video as the credits at the start have been telecined with the 'scope lens off so that the titles fit a 4:3 ratio without being cropped off the sides.

Would love to see this in widescreen!

That's like the copy I got from a UK Ebay sale about 10 years ago, pretty sure it stems from UK TV broadcast.  Sometimes George's fleeting nudity it mentioned as a reason why this has not been officially released, she's playing a just under 16 character but was almost 18 when she filmed it.  She and York had an affair and their chemistry is tangible. Hopefully someday it'll get some respect.

Another one that I'd not heard of that looks really good. I missed the boat on OFFBEAT but have pre-ordered the paperback version. Sounds like it's putting you onto some proper winners.

Couldn't be doing with sitting through some of these via the copies of dubious quality though! Granted they're probably not going to see light of day any other way but the presentation must really impact on viewing these for the first time.  :-X

I'm really enjoying it, it reminds me of those great days back in the early 90's when parcels of VHS nth generation copies of films I'd never seen would arrive. I loved discovering those films and it's the same now. Doesn't impact on the first time viewing at all, then again for the past thirty years or so most of my film watching has been via less than perfect copies anyway so this isn't anything new for me.

I can relate to that - it's great discovering stuff, for sure. I just couldn't sit through really poor quality copies these days. I think the fact that we all have much bigger tellies doesn't help either.

That's probably where I differ with my current 28" widescreen crt set! The image quality looks just fine to me.

I'd keep hold of it, then!

We have one LCD in the living room and up until a couple of months ago that's the only telly we had in the house. I bought a 14" CRT for my office recently for checking discs primarily but have it hooked up to a Blu-ray player so that I can listen to audio commentaries while I work  :D

Haha! Yeah he's an unlucky one isn't he? Mind you I wouldn't really say it's unlucky as he really does make some stupid choices so it's his own fault most of the time!
