Show Summary Details


In the latter half of the 1960s Dearden and Relph worked on a number of big-budget films made for Hollywood companies operating in Britain. By contrast with much of their earlier productions, these films were aimed at the world market, were all made in colour and featured exotic locations and international stars. Khartoum (1966) is perhaps the best known of these films. This chapter discusses these films in detail and concludes with a brief account of Dearden's work on the television series The Persuaders!
