Sid Good film at the Essoldo Tone.
Tone What is it?
Sid The Curse of the Living Dead
Tone Whos in it?
Sid Peter Lorre and Vincent Price.
Tone Whats it about?
Sid It says here Price and Lorre are both Egyptologists who awaken a mummy with dreadful consequences for the research team, as one by one they fall victim to the mummys curse
Tone Sounds like a right old load of codswallop.
Bill So me and Sid cant persuade you to come then?
Tone No dont worry about me Ill stay in and listen to the Shipping Forecast, see whats happening in Malin, Finisterre, Dogger Bank, Irish Sea, Fisher, German Bight and the rest. No, you go ahead Ill be alright. I might hear one of those emergency messages like Will Roger Ponsonby-Evans late of 56 Hollyhocks Avenue, Kent get in touch with his family as his mother is dangerously ill.
Sid Bit morbid isnt it?
Bill Why not listen to Valentine Dyall thatll cheer you up?
Tone He gives me the willies with that sepulchral voice of his; I wonder how many people have nightmares after listening to him. I may tune in to the police messages though, theyre pretty exciting. I like it when theres a suspect on the premises and you can just imagine the old bell on the front of the Wolseley dinging away as they race to apprehend some villain.
Bill Well well be off now Tone.
Sid Yes, see you later Tone.
THE DOOR CLOSES
Tone thinks out loud; Lets have a look in the Radio Times; whats on? In Town Tonight, Edmundo Ros, (I dont mind him hell probably be shaking his maracas about though!) Lift Up Your Hearts, The Archers and oh no! I wonder if its too late too catch them up; I forgot that Jimmy Clitheroe is on tonight!"
