SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Young and Innocent

Young and Innocent is a 1937 British crime thriller film directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring Nova Pilbeam and Derrick De Marney. Based on the 1936 novel A Shilling for Candles by Josephine Tey, the film is about a young man on the run from a murder charge who enlists the help of a woman who must put herself at risk for his cause, it is notable for an elaborately staged crane shot Hitchcock devised towards the end of the film, which identifies the real murderer. On a stormy night, at a retreat on the English coast, Christine Clay, a successful actress, argues passionately with her jealous ex-husband Guy. Not accepting her Reno divorce as valid, he accuses her of having an affair, she slaps him and he leaves the room. While they had been arguing, his eyes twitched violently; the next morning, Robert Tisdall happens to be walking along the seaside when Christine's dead body washes ashore. He recognizes her, runs for help. Two young women arrive just in time to see him racing away from the corpse.

The police decide that Tisdall is the only suspect. Christine was strangled with the belt from a raincoat, he admits knowing the victim from three years ago when he sold her a story, but the authorities assume the two have been having an affair. When they learn that she has left him money in her will, they feel they have hit upon motive and Tisdall is arrested. Scotland Yard detectives grill him all night; the next morning, he faints and is revived with the aid of Erica Burgoyne, daughter of the local police Chief Constable. Tisdall is assigned an incompetent barrister, is taken into court for his formal arraignment. Doubting if his innocence will be established, he takes advantage of overcrowding in the courthouse to escape, wearing the barrister's eyeglasses as a disguise, he gets away by riding on the running board of Erica's Morris car, revealing himself to her after the car runs out of petrol. He helps push the car to a filling station, pays for petrol, convinces her to give him a ride. Though she is fearful and unsure about her passenger, Erica becomes convinced of his innocence and chooses to help him in any way that she can.

They are spotted together, forcing both to stay on the run from the police. Tisdall tries to prove his innocence by tracking down the stolen coat: if it still has its belt, the one found next to Christine's body must not be his; the duo succeed in tracing Tisdall's coat to a homeless, but sociable, china-mender. But Will was not the thief, and when Will received the coat, its belt was missing. Separated from the group, Erica is taken in by the police. Upon realizing that his daughter has allied herself with a murder suspect, her father chooses to resign his position as Chief Constable rather than arrest her for assisting a felon. Tisdall sneaks into their house to see her, intending to surrender next, but she mentions that the coat had a box of matches from the Grand Hotel in a pocket. Tisdall has never been there: the murderer has a connection to the hotel. Erica and Will go to the hotel together. In a memorably long, continuous sequence, the camera pans right from their entrance to the hotel and moves forward from the back of the hotel ballroom focusing in extreme closeup on the drummer in a dance band performing in blackface.

His eyes are twitching. He is Guy. Recognizing Old Will in the audience, seeing policemen nearby, Guy performs poorly due to fear, he is berated by the conductor and, during a break, takes medicine to try to control the twitching, but it makes him sleepy. In mid-performance, Guy passes out, drawing the attention of Erica and the police. After being revived and confronted, he confesses his crime and begins laughing hysterically. Erica tells her father that she thinks it is time they invited Tisdall to their home for dinner. Variety called the film a "Pleasing, artless vehicle" for Nova Pilbeam, "charming" in her role and concluded, "If the pic is not Hitchcock's best effort, it is by no means unworthy of him." Frank Nugent of The New York Times called it a "crisply paced, excellently performed film." The Monthly Film Bulletin wrote, "Innumerable small touches show Hitchcock's keen and penetrating observation and his knowledge of human nature. Comedy and thrills are skilfully blended." Harrison's Reports wrote.

Because of the novelty of the story, the interesting plot developments, the expert direction by Alfred Hitchcock, one's attention is held from the beginning to the end." John Mosher of The New Yorker wrote that it was "rather disappointing to me. It begins with a smart murder, but wanders off through the English rural landscape in a fashion so lacking in that sound common sense we like in our mysteries, or like to feel is there anyhow, that one's interest fades away."Aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reports 100% approval of Young and Innocent, with an average rating of 7.6/10. Significant changes were made in adapting the book for the film; the novel is a whodunit centred on the Scotland Yard inspector, Tey's regular character Alan Grant. The storyline involving Robert Tisdall, Erica Burgoyne, the missing coat is similar to the film story, but in the novel it is only a subplot and ends part way through the book when Erica finds the coat and it is intact

Prior to opening Gaggan, Anand worked at the three Michelin star molecular gastronomy restaurant elBulli in Spain; the chef has incorporated similar techniques into the menu at Gaggan. These have included a coriander foam served with green peppercorn chicken kebabs in a dish entitled "Green with envy", one entitled "Beauty and the Beast" which features potatoes stuffed with figs, his signature dish turned out to be "Lick it Up", a mix of different curries placed on a plate that the diner has to lick. Gaggan serves a 25-course tasting menu with no words, only emoji, which Anand described as "a way to transcend language barriers". In 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, the restaurant was named both the best restaurant in Thailand, Asia's best restaurant in the list of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants collated by Restaurant magazine; this was an increase from the third spot overall in Asia from in 2014.

2008–09 Guildford Flames season

During the 2008–09 season, the Guildford Flames participated in the semi-professional English Premier Ice Hockey League. It was the 17th year of Ice Hockey played by the Guildford Flames and the second season under Paul Dixon as head coach. During the summer Dixon worked to improve the defensive line by shipping out Dominic Hopkins and Ben Johnson, replacing them with 17-year-old Steven Lee who had played two seasons with Elite League side Hull, bringing toughness to the team in the form of Mark Williams from Romford. Other departures included fringe player Ben Duggan, replaced by Matt Hepburn from the juniors; the main talking point over the summer was the departure of long time top goal scorer Jozef Kohut, leaving the team with what many believed was a weak offence. After an indifferent start to the season with 3 wins and 3 losses, it was announced on 9 October that the Flames would travel to Slovakia and take part in an exhibition against Extraliga side Poprad in a game opened by the Queen during her state visit to the country.

After a poor run of results in November and a multiple game ban for import Vaclav Zavoral, the decision was taken to sign Czech Martin Bouz. A surprise departure was the main feature of January with Mark Williams leaving to pursue work commitments and to play closer to home with the Romford Raiders. Final Table Secured Play-off Berth.
