1951 Down Place: Episode #007 – Paranoiac

March 31, 2012 by · 1 Comment 

The Down Placers considered taking a trip to Ollie’s Last Pub in Malta to discuss Oliver Reed, but since at least two of them don’t have passports, they settled for discussing Oliver Reed’s performance in 1963’s Paranoiac (dir. Freddie Francis).  And while Peter Cushing isn’t in this month’s featured film, the guys just can’t seem to stop talking about the man!  Can you guess how long it takes for Cushing to come up, and who’s the first one to mention him?

We really need to review more Peter Cushing films apparently . . .
