Newsletter after ACT location walk, 31st August 2003
By: Paul Tritton
To all my 'A Canterbury Tale' associates:
60th anniversary location walk
Lady Attenborough and John Sweet have asked me to forward their thanks and best wishes to those of you who attended our walk at Chilham on August 31 and signed the greetings cards we sent them after the walk.
Lady Attenborough wrote: "It is wonderful that younger generations of today still find the magic in this film so compelling after all this time. I would be most grateful if you were able to convey my enormous thanks to all those kind people who signed the card. I will always greatly treasure these mementoes of a time long past ... I so value my ongoing connection and bond with Canterbury as the years go by. With very much love to you and all those marvellous supporters of the film."
John Sweet wrote: "Thank you so much ... talk about continuity! Maybe in five years I could even join you once again. A most pleasant thought. Hello too to Steve [Crook] who has done so much to grease the turnings of the Powell wheel."
A report of the walk can be found here
Approx. 130 photographs taken by Richard Fraser and David Manners during the walk are now available on CD. For a complete set, send a cased, blank CD-R in a strong s.a.e. and a cheque for £5 payable to 'Kent Kids Miles of Smiles' to me at 2 Salts Avenue, Loose, Maidstone, Kent ME15 0AY.
Richard and David own the copyright to the images, which will be supplied to you for your personal use only. They must not be copied by or for third parties without permission.
New edition of 'A Canterbury Tale - Memories of a Classic Wartime Movie'
It is unlikely that I will be able to find a publisher or book distributor willing to accept sole rights to a new edition of my book, nor do I have the resources to finance and market a new edition as a 'self publishing' venture.
I am therefore considering making the original edition available on CD-R. The book was created using a DTP program called Serif Pageplus and if anyone who has this program is interested in buying the book in this format, please email me.
I would also be pleased to hear from anyone who could convert my PagePlus files into .pdf files so that I could offer the book in this format to those who would prefer to view it on Acrobat Reader.
