PEOPLE IN PROFILE

Mark Ewen (Scotland)

Two more films in this amusing series of 'profiles' featuring people with unusual or interesting occupations.
See also People in Profile - Boris Szlekov, Magician (lib. no: FT/V 125 item 5).

1. DUNCAN GUTHRIE : A VERY FUNNY MAN
A would-be comedian Duncan Guthrie (Gordon McPherson) tells us that he has a gift for comedy. His agent (Alasdair Corrigall) is happy to go along with this - and 'allow' his client £25 per week! Duncan's granny (Ina Grant) has her own opinion - and lets him know it!! When we see Duncan rehearsing we are able to make up our own minds. Well scripted with good performances. Made in 1990

Humour
16.min


2. NORMAN LOVE : BURGLAR
Self-confessed burglar Norman Love (Ronald Cromar) tells us about his trade and his lifestyle. Also, we hear from his colleague-in-crime Murdo Baxter (Chris Leslie), with additional details from a former safe-cracker Archie Meldrum (Bill Thain); Norman's accountant Roger Dunbar (Norman Edwardson); his house-keeper Edith Parker (Mary Catto) and an elderly friend Beatrice Allan (Margaret Cromar). If it weren't for the cast list it would be easy to believe these were real people - a tribute to the performances, the script and the direction.
