Event alert: Raymond Austin is scheduled to give a presentation at the Cinema Museum in London on July 25th. Austin has had a prolific career in film and television, workings as stunt coordinator, actor, director, producer, and writer on such projects as North By NorthwestThe Avengers, The Saint, Peter Gunn, The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner, The Champions, Department S, The Baron, Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased), Space 1999, Strange Report, The New Avengers, Return of the Man From U.N.C.L.E., and many others. He will be talking at the museum about his varied career and work as a stunt co-ordinator and director, illustrated with clips. Sounds great! As we continue to lose so many  people who worked creatively during the spy boom, it's especially important to hear their stories while they are with us. Doors open at 18:30. More info at the Cinema Museum. Learn more about Austin at his website.

Enjoy!
