Biographical

Les talks about his career but in so doing refers to lab equipment, optical printers, and the various cameras and their magazines, so there is quite a high level of technical content. His army call up is covered and how that led to Army film work in Egypt. Studios mentioned include Denham and he talks about Humphreys laboratories. There is also quite a lot about colour film (Dufay, Eastmancolot and Techicolor). He explains the role of a "contact man" and latterly the many cuts and reorganisations at Technicolor as the accountants take over from the film people.DS 2018.
