Completely coincidentally I encountered this image on an illustrated index of films, from that short.

Looks like Alec Guinness in his George Smiley days.

I'm glad neither of those gentlemen is here to read those comparisons.

We all get old, Rick--and Guinness was perfectly happy to go too far in makeups.

Despite all of the above, I sat in rapt fascination while watching THE TELL-TALE HEART. It's an illuminating example of just how incredibly ramshackle quota quickies could get, and perhaps offers something of an insight into how lost titles such as Widgey Newman's CASTLE SINISTER (1932) might have looked. But it's also a reminder that some quota quickies earned a reputation of never having played before a paying audience, merely being screened to fulfil the requirements of the quota act... while the vacuum cleaners were being run over the auditorium. Reaching the all-important 48-minute mark to qualify as a feature: that's what seems to have counted above all else here.

Ahem -- to our friends across the Pond:  Anything that can be done to help, in the name of the Special Relationship (if it still stands during this current Administration)?

PMs happily accepted.  (That's PMs as in "personal messages," not as in "prime ministers.")  😉
