    Flame in the Streets

    ★★★

    "One of these days you'll wake up and find out the spades have taken over this place and wonder how it happened."

    A Union leader who fights for equality in the workplace turns out to have a somewhat different attitude when he discovers that his daughter has fallen in love with a West Indian.

    Actually that is perhaps a bit harsh and maybe it would be fairer to say that John Mills' character is realistic about the prospects for a…

    007 Rank-A-Thon

    SPECTRE are aiming big this time, trying to provoke all out war between the USA and Russia by hijacking their spacecraft, causing a lot of name calling and general mistrust between the superpowers. Then when they blow themselves up SPECTRE will swoop in and the world will be theirs.

    That feels like a rather drastic way to obtain ultimate power, particularly since there's no guarantee there'll be anything left after the conflagration, but I guess they've grown tired…
