My first play review since lockdown! Review of Terence Rattigan’s THE DEEP BLUE SEA at the National Theatre in 2016 (linked). This started live streaming on YouTube on 9th July, and is available now.  It’s a detailed review which also continues and  discusses live theatre v streamed recordings, and also the comparison with the Chichester 2019 production and the difference in the theatres. Definitely one to see.

This film is 1965 (well, 30 December 1964 premiere!). THE YELLOW ROLLS-ROYCE (linked) is a Terence Rattigan script, with three separate stories  all involving the same car, set between England in 1931, Italy a few years later, then Trieste and Yugoslavia in 1941. It’s most noted for its stellar cast … Rex Harrison, Jeanne Moreau,  Shirley MacLaine, George C. Scott, Alain Delon, Omar Sharif and Ingrid Bergman.
