The Man Who Haunted Himself (1970) with guest Caz Rickards

Season 1, Ep. 3

This month we discuss the Roger Moore-starring The Man Who Haunted Himself, which leads to us talking about eyebrow acting, James Bond (naturally), safari suits and knitwear modelling. We also welcome Dr Carolyn Rickards to tell us about her involvement in the AHRC-funded project 'The Eastmancolor Revolution and British Cinema, 1955-1985)', and the striking use of colour in this month's film.

You can read Dr Rickard's excellent chapter "The Rise and Fall of the Colourful Corporate Fantasy in 1960s British Cinema" in the book Sixties British Cinema Reconsidered

You can find out what Dr Rickards is up to currently by following her on Twitter: @caz_rickards

The Eastmancolor Revolution and British Cinema, 1955-1985 also has an excellent blog:
