5.0 out of 5 stars It has been a long wait...., June 22, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: She Fell Among Thieves (DVD)
I don't understand the Amazon credits listing of Judy Dench etc., since these are not the actors in this wonderful film.... the very first episode of PBS' MYSTERY! How many years did I listen to the audio tape I made of this program? Campy dialogue, wonderful music, remarkable acting and actors.... and remembering Vincent Price saying the screen writer took the original novel, its concept, and threw the rest away... the results were a wonderfully atmospheric period piece with tongue-in-cheek humor that is mostly supplied by the viewer. And Eileen Atkins steals the film as the most succulent villian... accompanied by the proper eerie moments or organ music in the score. One hell of an ending, too!

Why the credit listing of Judi Dench in "She Fell Among Thieves" when (people claim) she isn't even IN it?

Well, first off, "people" you're right.

Judi Dench was never in "She Fell Among Thieves."

BUT "She Fell Among Thieves" was part of a series in the UK known as the "BBC 2 Play of the Week" just like the play that Judi WAS in...which was called "On Giant's Shoulders" and in which Dame Judi played "Hazel Wiles."

So when the BBC released these the cast list lists everyone who was ever in a production for that series of the BBC 2 Play of the Week and IMDB dutifully follows along like robots thus adding to the confusion of American Viewers who saw "She Fell Among Thieves" in its alternate role as the premiere of the long running MYSTERY! series on PBS (and, later, A & E).

So, maybe Amazon will let you Judi Dench fans exchange your copies of "She Fell Among Thieves" for "On Giant's Shoulders" should that ever become available through Amazon.com

(it isn't now).
