Unsung Hero

The anonymous and ubiquitous Peter, him of the shoes in an earlier blog (November 2014), regularly contributes to ReelStreets, and with his eagle eye, scours the capital for available locations. 

His accuracy with his camera is demonstrated in the latest three pictures now loaded on "One Way Out" that Peter recently submitted. Finding a location is often difficult enough, capturing the correct angle is often impossible with Google Street View, and because of the different focal lengths of modern still cameras lenses and the cine cameras that have been in use over the last hundred years, an exact comparison once captured, is a thing of beauty and a joy forever.

The three shots by Peter are spot on in every respect. Well done that man. Thank you.

John Hurt – Actor – 1940 – 2017

Starting with “A Man For All Seasons”, and advancing through “Elephant Man”, “Naked Civil Servant”, “10 Rillington Place”, “Scandal” etc., to H. Potter Esq and Indiana Jones, Hurt was a man of a thousand characters, often spooky, occasionally truly frightening and his appearance in more than one hundred feature films means that he has also often appeared on our site.

Knighted in 2015, John was still John to his friends, colleagues and, more importantly his film and production crews.

We’ll miss him. 

RIP

Record Breaking Reel Streets

Well fans, it looks like we will break the record again this month.

In March '16  we were getting 71k files viewed per day, 2.21m in the month.

Currently Jan '17 we are at 75k files per day, so in six days we should have a new block busting, biggest, grandest, super colossial, humongous, mammoth, whopping  turnover.......EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....2.26m 

Very well done you lot out there for continuing to send in snippits, pics, films, stills and the recent slab of “nows” by Cynthia and Lionel as well as ongoing work by the Three Wise Men and Peter, ably aided and assiduously assisted by an army of authentic adventurous amateurs Phil Bailey, Raymond Edwards, Dave Wilson, Stephen Dean, James Churcher and Nick Williams.

If I've missed out someone who added all the stills for a film in the last month, sorry, tell me who you are, it wasn't intentional.

Best wishes

John Tunstill.
