Dear Me Peter Ustinov 1977: Vintage Ustinov

I was very excited when I found this book in the charity shop near where I live. I’ve been an ardent Ustinov fan ever since I first saw him in Viva Max on Saturday Night at the Movies when I was younger. Then came Logan’s Run in 1976 where Ustinov played the world’s oldest man…. Read More ›

MikesFilmTalk Salutes Ellen Page

The first thing I ever saw Ellen Page in was the 2005 film Hard Candy. Hard Candy was like Sleuth  on drugs.
