The Darkside – Issue 224 – November 2021
English | 70 pages | pdf | 81.8 MB
Prepare for high adventure in this great new issue of our sister magazine Infinity as we go behind the scenes on the project that changed forever the style and content of the films produced by the partnership of Charles Schneer and Ray Harryhausen. This film was the fantasy classic that broke new ground: The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, and Mike Hankin does it full justice with his exhaustively researched feature.
We’ve got a ton of other good stuff here as well of course, including The Sound of the Rings, perfectly timed to coincide with the 40th anniversary of Brian Sibley’s epic radio version of J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.
Comics aficionado Mark Campbell delves into the history of The Topper, and we pay a visit to Midsomer, where the overall death count currently stands in excess of 586, according to fan site, Midsomer Murders Wiki. If you’re a fan of this popular long-running ITV series then you might like to see where the show was filmed, and we invite you to check out some of the most famous film and TV Locations in the Chilterns and Thames Valley…
We also have a fun feature on Star Trek Phase 2, the series that might have been, and Yorkshire Television’s 3-2-1. Hosted by Ted Rogers and a motorised dustbin it was surely the most gloriously eccentric game show of its day. Also, in the first of a two-part interview, the Oscar-winning Star Wars Art Director and film maker Roger Christian talks to Roger Crow about creating the light sabre, R2-D2, and other iconic props in those galaxies far, far away. Oh and did we mention Frankie Howerd will also be dropping in? Seriously, missus, titter ye not!
Oh no, don’t mock. And don’t miss, either.
