Talking Pictures 9.00pm - 10.40pm
crime comedy ⊲The opening music (by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber) and credit titles are superbly evocative of those 1940s detective thrillers that this movie seeks both to spoof and celebrate. Director Stephen Frears perfectly conjures up this mood, from the moment we first meet Eddie Ginley (a marvellous performance by Albert Finney), a small-time bingo caller and private eye on the trail of the Fat Man. Dir: Stephen Frears 1972, 12, 100min
