The Ealing Studios experience

To be in the place where The Ladykillers and Kind Hearts and Coronets were made! Wonderful. Even though it was the weekend, filming was taking place. I heard a rumour that Johnny Depp was there, but didn't see him. I did see people walking about dressed in Victorian costume. Rich and poor. Grubby and clean. An image etched on my mind is that of a decrepit looking man in a heavily patched Victorian coat and hat, with a long grubby-looking beard, sitting on a sofa in the sunshine, speaking into his I-Phone.

If you want to see what I was doing at Ealing Studios, have a look at Chris Jones's blog. I'll write more about it in future postings.
