The Witchfinder General BBC Two/HD 00:05 Sat 1 Nov 2014

Wilfrid Brambell has a very small role in this film... (might be of interest to those that don't have it on DVD)

A disturbing tale of evil, set during the English Civil War, about a corrupt witchfinder.

Ever since I saw this film is a documentary a few years ago I really like it. It had quite a lot of trouble while it was being produced as well. Note the broadcast BBC version was the cut version, but the directors cut. I think the uncut version had scenes the director wanted nothing to do with.

I only just noticed WB was in it.

Hey Ronnie long time no see.

Yeah it's a shame Wilfrid only had a bit part, but then that's all he needed!! He probably earned more per minute than the main star. Just shows where they crop up, Wilfrid did various controversial films, never one to shy away from them!
