It's one of those films that centres on the lives of people living in Liverpool back in the thirties, but somebody should have told its director that here in Merseyside "we speak with an accent exceedingly rare" so the Beetles wrote.
You won't hear a single local accent from any of the cast. In fact the late, great, Robert Newton, the definitive Long John Silver, speaks with a posh southern accent. The rest of the players speak with Mancunian accents is the best way to describe them.
Maybe the actors found it too difficult to put on scouse accents, or maybe they felt nobody would understand them if they did.
No matter, it's a free evening out and the film contains some interesting footage of Liverpool shot in 1950, back when I was only 4 years old living in our little terraced house a stone's throw from the docks. Sigh!

I've just had a look at the film on Youtube. Brilliant ! As Alonso said - not a Liverpool accent anywhere. Great background shots. Good to see and hear the roar of the Overhead, sights and sounds of the trams, ferries, floating stage etc. All swept away in the name of progress of course !

It would be good to see it on the "big screen", but a bit of a hike from here. frown

Not having the accent is a good thing in my opinion, it is nothing to be proud of at all.
Keep English as English i say, not that i talk it very well but scouse is disgusting as far as i am concerned.

Has anybody seen The Magnet?

Thankyou for the heads up touchstone, would love to attend bit unfortunatly i have other arrangements.

Rude & Missy: Glad you had a good time. I wasn't able to go myself as I was working. We raised about £90 for library too. Probably around 40 people, which is a good crowd.

Alonso, Ste & Pinz: We will be showing a few more films in the coming months with a Wirral or Liverpool setting. Some of them will be a little obscure for many people, but will certainly be of interest for those who like local History.

Paxo: I'll post future film events up here too.

Yes, the new chairs are great. It was actually the Wallasey Historical Society that secured the funding for the chairs, so well done to them. We got the blinds though. Very useful when it comes to showing films on sunny days. Especially when the sun is so low in the sky.

Our latest Film Night will be next Tuesday. We'll be showing Violent Playground. A 1958 British film directed by Basil Dearden starring Stanley Baker, Peter Cushing and David McCallum. The film, which deals with the genreof juvenile delinquent, has an explicit social agenda. It owes much to U.S. films of a similar genre.

McCallum's character, in particular, references roles played by James Dean, Marlon Brando, and especially Vic Morrow in Blackboard Jungle. Rock 'n' Roll is presented as a negative influence. In a memorable scene, music appears to put the youths into a trance-like state culminating in McCallum leading a menacing advance on Baker's character.

The film is mainly set in the former Liverpool tenement block Gerard Gardens. There are many shots of North Liverpool and the city centre including Ranelagh Street, Lord Nelson Street and School Lane. A climactic car chase takes in several city centre roads and ends in the Mersey Tunnel.

Time: 7pm
Date: Tues 25th March

Believing his father, Rees Mathry, had died a war hero, he is shocked to discover he is alive and serving a life sentence in prison for murder. Paul embarks upon his own investigation and finds the true culprit, clearing his father's name.

The film includes many Liverpool location shots including Pier Head, the docks, North Liverpool and the the city centre. The film also includes a visit via a ferry boat to a fictional night club in New Brighton.

Friends of Wallasey Central Library's Film Night

The next film we'll be showing is the The Silver Fleet on the 27th May.

Written and directed by Vernon Sewell and Gordon Wellesley and produced by Powell & Pressburger under the banner of The Archers.

In the early years of World War II, the Nazis have overrun the
Netherlands and have taken over the shipyard co-owned and run by Jaap van Leyden (Ralph Richardson). The yard was making submarines for the Dutch Navy. The German 'Protector' Von Schiffer (Esmond Knight) demands that they resume making submarines, but for the Nazis. By lowering food rations to starvation point, they induce some of the skilled workers to return to the yard.

The film was shot on location on Merseyside. The shipyard scenes are filmed in Cammell Lairds featuring many of the yard's workers as extras. Port Sunlight Village doubles for the Dutch village.

Date: 27th May
Time: 7pm

joany.. The Magnet has already been shown. Sometime in 2012 at a guess? A brilliant film. Lots of New Brighton, Wallasey and L'pool locations. Filmed early 1950's (?) Sights and sounds of the L'pool Overhead Railway, steam ferry from New Brighton Stage etc.

A lot of received pronunciation - "I say father, do I HAVE to go to school today?" etc. Not a L'pool accent to be heard! I "think" it's out on dvd. Well worth trying to obtain a copy if you can.

A short clip (including the Overhead) here....

Hi Joany. Thanks for coming last night. Glad you enjoyed it. We had a total of 46 people there. Very pleased with the turnout. I'll find out if we can show The Magnet in the near future as a lot of people have requested it. The Light cinema in New Brighton showed it a few years ago. The place was packed out. Our licence at the library only covers certain films, so I'll have to check if it includes The Magnet. Will post here again when I find out.

Our next Film Night at the library will be the classic French film, 'Madame De' [1953] on the 14th October. It is considered a "masterpiece of 1950s French cinema" and has been highly acclaimed by critics from both sides of the Channel.
The story involves Louise, the titular Madame De, a spoiled women who has amassed large debts due to her opulent lifestyle. She has to sell her diamond ear rings, a wedding present from her husband, a General called Andre. This results in much drama and emotional turmoil for a number of people.
The film starts at 7.30pm with doors opening at 7pm. As usual, there will be refreshments and a raffle.

Thank You to Zipperclub,Pinzgauer and Touchstone for all of your replies. I had a look at the quick clips and also the links, makes very intriguing viewing trying to guess the locations.I wanted to know if this was going to be shown so I could talk about it with other people. My husband always told me that his friend was in the film and when we watched it together many years ago he said he remembered Wallasey was just like that when he was growing up. His friend played Spike in the film and his name is Keith Robinson, but I don't know if he is still with us, maybe someone will?

Another date for your diary: our Film Nights continue into October with the 1960s film, Ferry Cross The Mersey.

28/10/14 Ferry Cross The Mersey 1965

Directed by Jeremy Summers, is one of the more uncommon artifacts of the Mersey scene, shown very rarely on television and never issued on video. It was the first to be shot on location in Liverpool after the city's emergence into the music mainstream.
Gerry and Fred Marsden, Les McGuire, and Les "Chad" Chadwick portray themselves in a romp through the early 1960's Liverpool Beat Scene. Art students by day and musicians by night the boy's big break comes by winning a local talent contest.
Marsden wrote nine new songs for the film which also starred Julie
Samuels, Cilla Black, and The Fourmost. The film is shot on location in Liverpool featuring clubs, the old Art School, Seacombe Ferry, River Mersey and city centre.

Doors open at 7pm and film starts at 7.30pm. FREE!

Hi Joany! We've checked our license and we can show The Magnet. We're just looking for a suitable date to slot it in. It will probably be some time in 2015 and will be FREE to anyone. For those who would like to watch it before then, I believe the Queens Pub in Liscard is having a private screening on the 27th. Not sure of the full details but it will be on Facebook somewhere.

The celebrated horror writer Ramsey Campbell presents a special showing of 'I Walked with a Zombie' (1943).

"The most elegant of Val Lewton's low budget horrors for RKO, an imaginative updating of Jane Eyre which anticipates Jean Rhys' Wide Sargasso Sea by transposing the action to the Caribbean, with Rochester's first wife not mad but the victim of a voodoo spell.

The script, weaving a delicately intricate web of local superstition around a litany of oblique references to the relativity of good and evil, does wonders in creating an ambiguously unsettling atmosphere. But it is Tourneur's caressingly evocative direction, superbly backed by Roy Hunt's chiaroscuro images, that makes sheer magic of the film's brooding journey into fear by way of voodoo drums, gleaming moonlight, somnambulistic ladies in fluttering white, and dark, silent, undead sentries." (Timeout)

Doors open 2.00pm
Film starts 2.15pm
Date: 8th Nov
Tickets: FREE

The film will be preceded by a short introduction by Ramsey Campbell.


Tonight's Film Night was our most popular yet. We had almost 70 people for 'Ferry Cross The Mersey'. The Film Nights really do seem to be gaining in popularity. We are now looking at the possibility of running regular Saturday Matinees. We will also be screening 'The Magnet' in the near future. We've had so many requests to show this classic Wallasey film. We'll post more details here soon.

It featured an ensemble cast led by screen veterans Fritz Kampers and Gustav Diessl; Diessl had been a prisoner of war for a year during the war.

Time: 7.30pm [doors open at 7pm]
Date: 9th December
Tickets: FREE!

"A contemporary and penetrating social drama about a ruthless business executive who returns home to his Liverpudlian roots to investigate his father’s death. Nicol Williamson produces an intense and compelling performance as the reprehensible hero conflicted by his old and new lifestyles – the high-powered London business world he has entered with his middle class life and the working class streets of Liverpool where he came from and which draws him back. This brutal drama about class in Britain was a contemporary production with Up The Junction and Room At The Top and it also preceded Get Carter, but it was in many ways more original and credible."

Our next Film Night is the neo-realist Italian film, Umberto D [1952]. Most of the actors were non-professional, including Carlo Battisti, who plays the title role of Umberto Domenico Ferrari, a poor old man in Rome desperately trying to keep his room. His landlady (Lina Gennari) is evicting him, and his only true friends, the housemaid (Maria-Pia Casilio) and his dog Flike (called 'Flag' in some subtitled versions of the film) are of no help. The movie was included in "Time Magazine's All-Time 100 Movies" in 2005.

It is a wonderful film, Chris. Everyone who came really enjoyed it. Not the most upbeat of pictures though. The scene at end in which Umberto almost kills himself and his dog had most of the audience flinching.

Our next Film Night is Tuesday 24th February. We'll be showing a Norman Wisdom picture called 'What's Good For The Goose' [1969]. This film is quite a curiosity as it's quite different to a usual Norman Wisdom film. He plays a 50-something assistant bank manager called Timothy Bartlett whose marriage has become lacklustre. When he goes to a banker's conference in a coastal town he meets a fun-loving female student called Nikki (Sally Geeson) with whom he has a brief affair and abandons his work responsibilities to have a perfect day with her having fun taking in all the seaside attractions and recapturing his youthful energy.
It is one of the few films set in Southport and includes some fascinating shots of the resort in the 1960s. It also includes a few scenes of a more adult nature. Although a curiosity, it's also a good film in its own right. It will make for a very enjoyable evening. This also concludes our 'On Merseyside' season.

Our next film is The 400 Blows (French: Les Quatre Cents Coups) is a 1959 French drama film, the debut by director François Truffaut; it stars Jean-Pierre Léaud, Albert Rémy, and Claire Maurier. One of the defining films of the French New Wave, it displays many of the characteristic traits of the movement. Filmed on location in Paris and Honfleur, it is the first in a series of five films in which Léaud plays the semi-autobiographical character.

13-year-old Antoine (Jean-Pierre Léaud) can't seem to do anything right. His dysfunctional parents yell at him, his spiteful schoolteacher picks on him and luck just never goes his way. Despite his efforts at patience, one day it all becomes too much and Antoine throws in the towel, choosing to take his chances on the Paris streets.

Our next Film Night tomorrow:

Breathless (French: À bout de souffle; "out of breath") is a 1960 French film written and directed by Jean-Luc Godard about a wandering criminal (Jean-Paul Belmondo) and his American girlfriend (Jean Seberg). It was Godard's first feature-length work and represented Belmondo's breakthrough as an actor.

Breathless was one of the earliest, most influential examples of the French New Wave (nouvelle vague). Together with François Truffaut's The 400 Blows and Alain Resnais's Hiroshima, Mon Amour, both released a year earlier, it brought international acclaim to this new style of French filmmaking. At the time, the film attracted much attention for its bold visual style and the innovative use of jump cuts.

Our Film Nights return tomorrow [Tuesday] with the Swedish classic, Summer With Monika [1953]. The film, directed by Ingmar Bergman, sparked controversy abroad for its frank description of nudity. Along with 'One Summer Of Happiness' the year before it helped to create the reputation of Sweden as a sexually liberated place.
The film made a star of the leading actress, Harriet Andersson. Bergman had been intimately involved with Anderson at the time and conceived the film as a vehicle for her. The two of them would continue to work together, even after their romantic relationship had ended.

For our next Film Club show, we will be showing by popular request The Magnet 1950 as part of a British Seaside season of films

The Magnet is a 1950 Ealing Studios comedy film, and gave James Fox his first starring role. The story revolves around a young Wallasey boy, Johnny Brent (Fox), whose deceptive obtaining of a magnet leads to confusion and ultimately him being hailed as a hero, but feeling guilt at his slyness.

The Magnet was filmed on location in and around New Brighton, Wirral, Cheshire and Liverpool, and at Ealing Studios, London, in black and white.

Please note that we will be showing a recent digitally restored version of the film. If you haven't seen this film before then you are in for a treat seeing Merseyside in 1950. If you know the film then it is worth seeing again for the newly restored version which has much better print quality than previous versions on DVD, VHS video and TV.

Tomorrow night's Film Night:

L'Année dernière à Marienbad (released in the US as Last Year at Marienbad and in the UK as Last Year in Marienbad) is a 1961 French film directed by Alain Resnais from a screenplay by Alain Robbe-Grillet.

Last Year at Marienbad is famous for its enigmatic narrative structure, in which truth and fiction are difficult to distinguish, and the temporal and spatial relationship of the events is open to question. The film's dreamlike nature has both fascinated and baffled viewers; many have hailed the work as a masterpiece, while others consider it incomprehensible.

Next film up at Wallasey Central Library is something special! We are showing the digitally restored version of Roeg's The Man Who Fell to Earth. The Man Who Fell to Earth is a 1976 British science fiction drama film directed by Nicolas Roeg and written by Paul Mayersberg, based on Walter Tevis' 1963 novel of the same name, about an extraterrestrial who crash lands on Earth seeking a way to ship water to his planet, which is suffering from a severe drought.The film maintains a strong cult following for its use of surreal imagery and its performances by David Bowie (in his first starring film role), Candy Clark, and Hollywood veteran Rip Torn.

Please note 18 or over only.

Bit short notice this but here's tonight's Film Night.

Next film up is something special for our British Seaside season - the director's cut of Quadrophenia.
A 1979 film, loosely based on the 1973 rock opera of the same name by The Who. The film stars Phil Daniels as Jimmy, a young 1960s London-based Mod who escapes from his dead-end job as a mailroom boy by dancing, partying, taking amphetamines, riding his scooter and brawling with the motorcycle-riding Rockers.
After he and his friends participate in a huge brawl with the Rockers at the seaside town of Brighton, he is arrested and his life starts to spiral out of control; he loses his girlfriend (Leslie Ash) and discovers that his idol, the popular mod nicknamed "Ace Face" (Sting) is actually a bell boy at a hotel.
Please note that the film has an 18 certificate and has adult themes.

Film Starts at 5.45 (due to 120 mins length)
Tuesday 26th April 2016
