Kimberly Lindbergs has posted an interesting article on Movie Morlocks about director Robert Fuest. Fuest, known for blending laughs with gasps, brought his unique style and sensibility to such projects as The Avengers, The New Avengers, Just Like a Woman, and The Abominable Dr. Phibes. Read about him at Movie Morlocks here. Spy Vibers may be interested to know Fuest helmed the Avengers episodes: Game, My Wildest Dream, They Keep Killing Steed, The Rotters, Take Me to Your Leader, Pandora, Take-Over, and New Avengers: The Midas Touch and The Tale of the Big Why. Perhaps more importantly, Fuest helped establish the look of The Avengers in its first stages (1961-1962) as a production designer. He also worked as a designer on The Protectors and Z Cars, and as a writer, he contributed to many shows, including Not Only... But Also starring Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. Readers might remember the support between my early Spy Vibe and Kimberly's blog Cinebeats, and it's always interesting to check in to see what she is watching and writing about. Enjoy!

  1. The Final Programme in particular deserves a lot more attention -- it's amazing.

    (And well within the topic of this blog if you haven't covered it already, I might add...)

  2. Thanks for the suggestion. I haven't explored The Final Programme yet and will check it out! -Jason
