Loseley Park , Guildford, Surrey
Contributors to Reelstreets will know that doing what we do can open up opportunities to head for areas that we would not normally consider or visit specific locations that we perhaps had never previously heard of. The latter certainly happened to me when covering The Counterfeit Gang and subsequently learning that Loseley Park and indeed the House, had featured...

One hundred and forty-four "now" shots loaded in the last 10 days by our back-room boy. There is a film, "The Small Back Room" where perhaps he learned his trade..
Is this a record or just another example of a flat, grooved, black vinyl disk? Whichever way, our Lad reely has had his nose to the grindstone, He never sleeps in the service of Reel Streets.

Our contributor friend Aiden McManus (aka Twitter's FlipLondon Tours) has drawn our attention to the forthcoming Film Festival taking place on the 29th and 30th April at the Regent Street Cinema (London) . The six films being shown explore Soho's musical heritage whilst celebrating the fast disappearing scene for which it became synonymous. An interesting...
- 26 Mar: The Comic Trump
The Comic Trump
The “TRUMP” was the children’s comic that a young Harry Fowler read in the classic film “Hue and Cry”, which has nothing in common with the current incumbent of the White House, except perhaps for the comic associations, but both characters appear inspired by adventure stories and believe wholeheartedly in criminal conspiracies.
All joking, well almost all joking, aside, the film...

Google have a scheme/system called "Local Guides" where people put up photos of interesting places taken in their local area, or in areas that they have visited.
This system, which contains space for written reviews, is seemingly viewed by hundreds of thousands of people. I launched a Local Guide entry in the summer of 2016, with many photographs and a long and damning report about ...

FILM – Brief Encounter
When Peter Brown identified the re-used opening footage of Brief Encounter (1945) as the opening footage for the film Wrong Number (1959) late last month he took the opportunity to say that he had never been persuaded by the well recorded fact that it was filmed at Watford Junction. Needless to say, I couldn’t let that go without enquiring further because even if Watford Ju...
