Notes
Here's a little British gem entitled "Seven Days to Noon" (Boulting) that I'd like to discover.


Plotline
An English scientist runs away from a research center with an atomic bomb. In a letter sent to the British Prime Minister he threatens to blow up the center of London if the Government don't announce the end of any research in this field within a week. Special agents from Scotland Yard try to stop him, with help from the scientist's assistant future son-in-law to find and stop the mad man.

    This is definitely a year to remember !

    My 5 favourite films of 1950, not including the obvious out-of-competition status for
    Michael Powell's GONE TO EARTH - The Director's Cut and Ophuls' LA RONDE, are :

    ALPHAST JUNGLE
    CAGED
    LE CHÂTEAU DE VERRE
    CRISIS
    NIGHT AND THE CITY


    (From 1949 to 1962 any Ozu's movie, with the exception of the unseen MUNEKATA KYÔDAI, would make my 5-titles lists. Because they are all like exquisite variations to each others, with the exception of OHAYÔ, I consider them as a one-and-single outstanding piece of achievement.)



    And I strongly recommend the following forgotten gems :


    AMBUSH : last movie by Sam Wood, a very original western filmed with the energy of teenager.
    QUICKSAND : enjoy watching Mickey Rooney jumping out the frying pan into the fire !
    SO LONG AT THE FAIR : a terrific mystery movie by Terence Fisher set in Paris at the turn of the century. And there's Jean Simmons !
    STATE SECRET : brilliantly penned and directed by Sidney Gilliat, it shares the spirit of these spy movies made in the thirties by the great Hitchcock !
    And yes SEVEN DAYS TO NOON has that magic documentary touch of british cinema that makes an enjoyable suspenseful movie.
