Patrick McGoohan The Obsessional Prisoner

Written by Paolo Hewitt

patrick mcgoohan the prisoner paolo hewitt.

In late September of 1967 Patrick McGoohan returned to London a compromised man. Throughout his highly successful career, the 39 year old actor had consistently and publicly maintained he would never, ever ‘sell out to Hollywood,’ and act in a meaningless blockbuster. Yet that summer that is exactly what he had done by accepting a major role in the big budget film adaptation of the Alistair MacLean novel, Ice Station Zebra.

Caroline Munro The Fantasy Icon

Written by Matteo Sedazzari

“Being in the right place, at the right time,” is how Brian Jones, then of The Rolling Stones,   described the discovery of the band. Certainly there is more depth to Brian Jones’s statement. Nevertheless what is true with his train of thought is the essence and spirit of the 60’s. An era where new ideas and new acts, seemed to be an everyday occurrence.

Tamer was fortunate enough to pass by the failed auditions, and wondering where his next meal was coming from.

They Call it Acid

Written by Paolo Sedazzari

They Call it Acid
Picture This – London Town 1987. A once swinging city paralyzed by a cult of conformity and materialism. The youth more pre-occupied with getting on the property ladder than getting “on one.” But something stirs deep in the heart of the city’s underground – the sound of pumping bass and percussion. A seismic shift in London’s landscape is about to happen.

I enter into a hotel lobby to meet the star of the BBC 3 hit comedy series, Mongrels, Nelson the Fox. He has requested that I don’t reveal the name or location of the hotel, as it is place that he likes to frequent on his own or with friends, to unwind and enjoy a selection of cakes and tea. All I can reveal is that it is a five star hotel in the heart of central London, renowned for their afternoon beverages.
