British Cinema Classic, Tom Jones, Celebrates 50th Anniversary




 Starring: Albert Finney, Susannah York, George Devine, Rachel Kempson, Angela Baddeley
Feature Running Time:  121 minutes
Certificate: PG

One of the greatest British films of all time, Tony Richardson’s, Academy Award© winning, TOM JONES, starring Albert Finney, celebrates its 50th anniversary.

The 1963 British film was a critically acclaimed box office hit.  Tom Jones went on to win four Academy Awards for Best Picture, Director, Screenplay, and Original Score and is still upheld as a landmark piece of British filmmaking.  It’s director, Tony Richardson was voted by the BFI as one of the greatest British filmmakers of the Twentieth Century. Richardson’s illustrious body of work includes the ground-breaking and genre defining titles: Look Back in Anger; Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner; A Taste of Honey and The Entertainer starring Laurence Olivier in one of his most powerful performances. These cinematic gems are all part of the classic Woodfall Film Library.
TOM JONES is an adaptation of Henry Fielding's classic novel and is a rousing, bawdy comedy about a young man's ribald adventures in 18th-century England, Albert Finney is splendidly hilarious in the title role of a charming womanizer. An international hit, the film was written by acclaimed playwright, John Osborne and noted for its unusual comic style often breaking the forth wall to include the audience.  For the 1989 reissue/restoration, the director trimmed approx. 7 minutes from the original.

Woodfall Film Productions were synonymous with the new British cinema of the sixties, pioneers of the new ‘Kitchen Sink’ dramas and launched the careers of some of the best British actors and directors of our time.

Tom Jones is available to rent or buy on iTunes and distributed by MGM.

THE LONDON FILM ACADEMY PRESENTS A CELEBRATION OF THE KING BY CAMPBELL MITCHELL

 

Photographer Campbell Mitchell launches VIVA, his first solo photographic exhibition in London, at the Rich Mix Arts Centre on December 5th, celebrating both the glitz and glamour of the UK Elvis Tribute Artists and the staggering impact that Elvis Presley continues to have upon us, thirty six years after his death.
 
Presented by London’s leading film school, the London Film Academy, with whom Campbell has a long-standing relationship, VIVA showcases the devotion and obsession of Elvis fans and their musical tribalism that has become a religion. The photographs detail the mania of fans at the Elvis Tribute events and, exclusively reveal homes of some of the most obsessive fans in the country – people who have turned their entire houses into shrines to their idol.
 
Campbell spent many nights documenting various Elvis Tribute Acts – attending the Elvis Four Nations competition and following one of the biggest ETAs - the consummate former World Champion Elvis Tribute Act, Mr. Johnny Lee Memphis. The resulting images are of performers in full flight, in custom-made costumes – channelling the power and pomp of one of the twentieth century’s most electrifying and charismatic stage performers.  It was during these concerts that the focus of VIVA began to shift has Campbell spent more and more time with the fans.
 
The final piece of VIVA focuses on the vast merchandising industry that keeps Elvis near the top of the show business earnings list decades after his death.  This stream of novelty items and memorabilia is bought by obsessive fans, desperate to get close to the object of their devotion.  The photographs show a distorted and nakedly commercial side to the King’s legacy.
 

Viva runs from 6th- 29th December at the RichMix Gallery, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA.
