Oliver White (Editor) - His Unreliable Memoirs - The Garland

The Garland I was nervous of working with Horace Ove on ‘The Garland’.  I’d looked at his previous drama and was alarmed.  Like Mozart’s king, who said, ‘Too many notes’, this had ‘Too many shots’!  and he did ‘The Garland’ the same way!  He was a distinctive figure in his leather jacket…..If I’d squeezed in […]

Gangsters Series 2 I did the film inserts into this studio-based production, and, as the material seemed to dictate, I cut it fairly sharply…..

Oliver White (Editor) - His Unreliable Memoirs - 'The Kiss of Death'

Kiss of Death by Mike Leigh Far more interesting than ‘Nuts in May’, because it wasn’t a natural winner.  The performances are stunning.  It introduced David Threlfall to the world.  The leading lady, Mike said, left the profession after this.  A great shame, if so.  It has my favourite sequence of any film I’ve ever […]
