Richard did this one, most people know the above for Clockwork Orange, but Richard tells me that he also made documentarys too. Made an interesting one about the Blues. Do you have the Blues today then Blue Jam, hope not.

Next challenge is FRITZ LANG, an amazing guy who made the the film METROPOLIS, a film long before its time. Richard introduced me to it, so if you haven't seen it watch it. Its improved alot since I first saw it, bits keep being found that were thought long lost. They recently found more bits, so maybe they will be added to.

Looking forward to the results!
