No Love for Johnnie

No Love for Johnnie is a 1961 British drama film in CinemaScope directed by Ralph Thomas. It was based on the book of the same name by the Labour Member of Parliament Wilfred Fienburgh, stars Peter Finch, it depicts the disillusionment and cynicism of a rebellious leftist Labour MP, who seeks escape in a relationship with a younger woman. The film had its world premiere on 9 February 1961 at the Leicester Square Theatre in London's West End. Johnnie Byrne, a cynical and burnt-out Yorkshire Labour MP, whose career has stalled due to his ostensibly leftist leanings, is re-elected with the victorious Labour Party after a General Election. Bitter not to receive an invitation to join the Government, his left-wing wife leaves him, he accepts an invitation to lead a conspiratorial group of MPs working against the centrist government. Mary, the single woman upstairs, adores him but they never quite become a couple. Johnnie falls in love with a 20-year-old student/model Pauline, misses making an important speech against the Government's militaristic plans because he is in bed with her.

His conspirators cause his local party to attempt to deselect him. He narrowly escapes a vote of no-confidence in his constituency, goes in search of Pauline who has ended their relationship, still in love, but knowing it is not the right relationship for her, he goes back home, to find his wife who wants to try again, she gives him her phone number. The Prime Minister offers him a post, reveals that the reason Johnnie was not offered one before was due to his wife's communist connections. Johnnie embraces his role in government. Finch won two film awards for this performance - one a BAFTA, the other the Silver Bear for Best Actor at the 11th Berlin International Film Festival.

P. Ralph Thomas said "we made that because we wanted to make it much. We all loved it - Betty, Peter Finch."Betty Box said she was "very surprised Rank let me do it... because they were politically conservative as an organisation. They liked the Peter Finch character being so corrupt because, after all, he was left wing. I must say I liked it much... I enjoyed making it much. I loved working with Peter Finch, he was drunk some of the time, not always easy, but I was just fond of him. Ralph and I both knew how to work with him."Music was by Malcolm Arnold, the score containing themes similar to those from Whistle Down the Wind, which he scored the same year. Arnold produced music scores for more than a hundred films, among these The Bridge on the River Kwai, for which he won an Oscar. There is a brief appearance of a young Oliver Reed as a bohemian party-goer. Thomas says the film "got great notices although it was never a commercial success, didn't pay for itself... it much reflected the politics of the day.

The plain fact is that people were not interested in the politics of the day."Finch won his third BAFTA for Best Actor playing MP Johnnie Byrne. No Love for Johnnie on IMDb

The Arrival (The Twilight Zone)

"The Arrival" is the second episode of the third season and 67th overall episode of the American television anthology series The Twilight Zone. After Flight 107, a propeller-driven Douglas DC-3 from Buffalo, lands safely with no crew or passengers aboard, the FAA sends Grant Sheckly, an inspector with 22 years of experience and proud of his flawless record of solving cases, to investigate the matter, he is assisted by the airport staff — vice president Bengston, PR man Malloy, mechanic Robbins, ramp attendant Cousins — but despite their combined efforts, no one can explain how an empty plane could safely land and taxi to a stop. Sheckly is nagged by the familiarity of the pilots' and passengers' names; the investigation continues to prove fruitless until Robbins remarks about the plane's blue seats, which puzzles Sheckly, who remembers them from when he entered the plane as being brown. Bengston further says; when they examine the plane's tail and each see different registration numbers, Sheckly claims the plane is not real an illusion each of them has imagined somehow.

To prove his hypothesis, as well as to break the illusion, Sheckly proposes a simple, yet fatal, test: he will put his arm in the arc of the plane's turning propeller. Despite their objections, he convinces the staff to go along with it, Robbins starts the plane's engines. After some hesitation, Sheckly places his arm directly into the spinning propeller. However, when Sheckly successively turns to the others, he is met only with silence as they each disappear, just as the plane did. Calling out for the staff, Sheckly makes his way back to the Operations room where he finds Bengston and Malloy, only to discover that they have no recollection of the empty plane or Sheckly's investigation; when asked, Bengston states that Flight 107 landed safely with full crew and passengers and shows him a newspaper article to prove it. But as Sheckly continues to press them about losing "Flight 107", Bengston remembers that the only plane the airline lost was a Flight 107, 17 or 18 years previously; the case had been investigated by Sheckly but was never solved, the only case he never figured out, closed as "presumed crashed for reasons unknown" at sea.

Sheckly staggers away and wanders through the airfield he calls out, demanding to know the fate of Flight 107 slumps onto to the ramp as the sound of an aircraft's jet engine is heard passing overhead. "The show now seems to be feeding off itself. Last Friday's episode, unless it proves to be an exception in the new skein, doesn't augur well for the future of the series. Twilight Zone seems to be running dry of inspiration." —from the Variety review. ”You should track down the episode. It’s not the strongest you’ll see of season three, let alone any other, but it has a kick ass moment of extreme tension that stands as quite memorable. At least to this particular viewer. Rod Serling delivers another slice of quality entertainment; the double twist earns major points.” —from the Addicted to Horror Movies review. Zicree, Marc Scott: The Twilight Zone Companion.
