Early Michael Winner film gets TV Airing

Saturday 30th 7pm Film24:
Murder on the Campus aka Out of the Shadow (1961)

Early Michael Winner film, one of several threadbare thrillers he shot for E.J. Fancey in the early 60s (as well as the nudist film Some Like It Cool). Might be worth a look, can’t be any worse than Winner’s The Cool Mikado can it?.

Update: Well... ‘threadbare’ was definitely the right word for that one, lots of wooden acting (especially from the heroine and the chap playing the antiques dealer), an hilariously cheaply staged car crash, and even a young Pete Walker in a small acting role.
