Oliver White (Editor) - His Unreliable Memoirs - 'Match of the Day'

Match of the Day by Neville Smith, directed by Stephen Frears What happened re ‘Match of the Day’?  Stephen never appeared on the first day he was expected – he’d gone to Switzerland, and not told anyone.  I phoned him at Gstaad, and he said, ‘Start at the beginning!’  What a waste of time.  Of […]

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 […]

Nuts in May by Mike Leigh Did Mike Leigh know this was going to be a knock-out success umpteen years later??  I didn’t!   ‘The famous CHEWING sequence!  We tried several lengths.  I now think it would be even funnier 4-5 seconds longer.  I’ve always been a great believer in the ‘perfect stranger’.  You grab someone […]

Oliver White (Editor) - His Unreliable Memoirs - 'Red Shift'

Red Shift by Alan Garner I was a little apprehensive of working with John McKenzie.  Like any good editor I’d looked at a previous film.  It was about the Orange Order in Glasgow, and was very good, tough stuff.  I vividly remember looked at the ‘synched’ rushes.  Take 1, so, so; Take 2, better; Take […]

Oliver White (Editor) - His Unreliable Memoirs - A Touch of Eastern Promise

A Touch of Eastern Promise by Tara Prem, directed by nice Michael Lindsay-Hogg It was ok I guess, but all that matters is Michael’s WATCH.  It was wafer thin, and curved round his wrist.  The winder was a jewel.  It had cost £800, and been given him by The Beatles for directing ‘Let It Be’.  […]
