    I came across Jonathan’s quote concerning her regard for the Ealing Studios film Dead of Night on the Birmingham Post website:

    “This is a compilation of horror stories, filmed by some of the finest British directors of the 1940s. It culminates in the famous sequence in which Michael Redgrave excels as a ventriloquist taken over by his demonic dummy.”

    I think I recall a mention of Dead of Night, specifically a reference to a character resembling Mervyn Johns from the film, in Touch of Love.

    I’m in the throes of writing a book about the film for Auteur’s Devil’s Advocates series. Consequently I’d be extremely interested to learn more about just how much this film means to Jonathan.

    Can you help?

    Best wishes,

    Jez Conolly


    ‘…concerning *his* regard…’ Sorry about that!
