A timely reminder to catch up with the 1986 Ken Russell directed movie 'Gothic'. Who can forget Gabriel Byrne or Timonthy Spalls performance, and, of course Alec Mango as Murray and Linda Coggins as the Mechanical Turkish Woman. Wonder if she was any good with an adjustable spanner and a twisted derailleur? If you can't get hold of a dvd why not try and see the 1781 Fuseli oil painting entitled 'Nightmare' on which a scene in the film was apparently based. While we're on the subject Thomas Dolby did the Soundtrack (to the film not the painting) ...yes, he of the 'She blinded me with Science' hit starring Dr Magnus Pyke. Why not check it out.
