Plays and Players was a monthly British theatre magazine published by Hansom Books. Each magazine has a cover photograph of a new production and includes reviews and photographs of all the previous month's major productions plus background articles and a complete playscript.
We thought we had sold all of my husband's substantial collection of Plays and Players from 1967-1980 with auctions ending last month, but I had wondered why we were missing many issues. Well, he cleaned out a cupboard in our home and found them--most from 1972, 1973, 1974 and 1978, with a few from 1970 and 1980. (Note: all issues left to list date from the early 1970s)

Desert Mice (1959)

Lawrence of Arabia Peter O'Toole 2 VHS Mint
840dc92f7

The Review : This sweeping, highly literate historical epic covers the Allies' mideastern campaign during World War I as seen through the eyes of the enigmatic T. E. Lawrence (Peter O'Toole, in the role that made him a star). After a prologue showing us Lawrence's ultimate fate, we flash back to Cairo in 1917. A bored general staffer, Lawrence talks his way into a transfer to Arabia. Once in the desert, he befriends Sherif Ali Ben El Kharish (Omar Sharif, making one of the most spectacular entrances in movie history) and draws up plans to aid the Arabs in their rebellion against the Turks. No one is ever able to discern Lawrence's motives in this matter: Sherif dismisses him as yet another "desert-loving Englishman," and his British superiors assume that he's either arrogant or mad. Using a combination of diplomacy and bribery, Lawrence unites the rival Arab factions of Prince Feisal (Alec Guinness) and Auda Abu Tayi (Anthony Quinn). After successfully completing his mission, Lawrence becomes an unwitting pawn of the Allies, as represented by Gen. Allenby (Jack Hawkins) and Dryden (Claude Rains), who decide to keep using Lawrence to secure Arab cooperation against the Imperial Powers. While on a spying mission to Deraa, Lawrence is captured and tortured by a sadistic Turkish Bey (Jose Ferrer), and the movie implies that the Bey's brutal treatment of him has aroused Lawrence's own repressed homosexuality: true or not, it is clear that he has undergone a radical personality change when he makes it back to his own lines. In the heat of the next battle, a wild-eyed Lawrence screams "No prisoners!" and fights more ruthlessly than ever. Screenwriter Robert Bolt used T. E. Lawrence's own self-published memoir The Seven Pillars of Wisdom as his principal source, although some of the characters are composites, and many of the "historical" incidents are of unconfirmed origin. Two years in the making (you can see O'Toole's weight fluctuate from scene to scene), the movie, lensed in Spain and Jordan, ended up costing a then-staggering $13 million and won seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director. The 1962 Royal Premiere in London was virtually the last time that David Lean's director's cut was seen: 20 minutes was edited from the film's general release, and 15 more from the 1971 reissue. This abbreviated version was all that was available for public exhibition until a massive 1989 restoration, at 221 minutes, that returned several of Lean's favorite scenes while removing others with which he had never been satisfied ///

THE BEST OF ENEMIES

Cast: David Niven, Michael Wilding, Harry Andrews, Noel Harrison, Ronald Fraser, Alberto Sordi, Bernard Cribbins, Duncan Macrae, Robert Desmond, Kenneth Fortescue, Michael Trubshawe and David Opatoshu.
In this military comedy, directed by the legendary Guy Hamilton who helmed some of the finest James Bond pictures, Maj. Richardson (Niven) and Lt. Burke (Wilding) are two British soldiers on a recognizance mission over Ethiopia in 1941 when their plane crashes in the desert. Capt. Blasi (Sordi), an Italian officer, finds the Englishmen and offers to help them: he'll let them go if they allow him and his men to take over an old fort nearby and stay there without being bothered. Richardson and Burke agree, and they return to their base of operations, only to discover that they've been ordered to attack the fort and capture Blasi and his men. Richardson considers himself a man of his word and doesn't care for this duty; in time, the two men become friends and exchange banter as they take turns capturing one another. Remarkably enough, Italian actor Sordi didn't speak English when he made this film, and he learned all his dialogue phonetically.

SAYVILLE YACHT CLUB HISTORY

Some time during the latter part of the 19th century a group of sailors broke away from the New York Yacht Club and formed the Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club in Center Island on the North Shore of Long Island.  In July of 1901 Regis H. Post, Walter L. Suydam, John E. Roosevelt, John R. Suydam, Robert B. Roosevelt, Bryce Metcalf, Kenyon Fortesque, Robert B. Roosevelt, Jr., Walter L. Suydam, Jr. and George C. Kobbe decided to form the Southside Yacht Club, breaking away from Seawanhaka Yacht Club.  The first site of the Club was in Bayport.  In 1904 the Club burgee was described: " The club burgee shall be a pointed flag, the hoist to be two-thirds of the length.  The device shall be a cross composed of 12 five-pointed stars in white on a red field:  eight stars to be placed on the middle line lengthwise and four crosswise at the third star from the luff, the stars to be equidistant and size one-sixth of the hoist.  You will note that the Seawanhaka Club burgee is the same as Sayville Yacht Club's but, instead of red,  it has a blue field for its 12 white stars.  In 1904 the Club had 27 sloops, yawls and 6 catboats in their racing fleet.  The largest of these was F Class, over 46 feet in length with maximum crew allowed 18 persons.  Some time after 1910 the Club became more closely associated with Sayville.  Early in this century President Theodore Roosevelt used to race in Southside Yacht Club regattas with his uncle Robert B. Roosevelt of Sayville and Regis Post of Bayport.  Prior to World War I the Southside Yacht Club held its Invitational Regattas at the foot of Foster Avenue.  Large refreshment tents were erected to serve lunch to the visiting yachtsmen.  These lunches were provided by the wives of the club members as is the custom today at all invitational regattas.   During World War I the Club was disbanded but again in 1920 racing was reestablished and in September 1920 the first Queen of the Bay Race was held.  It was in 1920 that the Southside Yacht Club was to be incorporated and at that time its name was changed to Sayville Yacht Club.  In 1922 the Sayville Yacht Club purchased the former Patchogue Yacht Club building.  After eight years the Sayville Yacht Club was financially unable to support the clubhouse and it was foreclosed by Captain Frank Rogers of Bayport.  In spite of this, Captain Rogers permitted the Club to use his oyster houses and grounds for parties and annual clam bakes.  So you can see that our annual Clam Bake has had a long tradition.  In the early 30's Mr. John P. Zerega of Bayport built a slip and clubhouse on Brown's River.  The slip is presently part of Doug Westin's Boat Yard on River Road, Sayville, but the clubhouse was floated across the Bay to Fire Island Pines.  In 1935 the Sayville Yacht Club organized an all day race for cruising sail boats and auxiliaries.  The race ran from Sayville to Howell's Point Bellport, to Babylon, then returning to Sayville for the finish line, or in reverse order depending on the wind.  This race was an annual affair until World War II and the basis of the present Cruising Club.  Once again in the late 1930's the Sayville Yacht Club came on hard times and Mr. Zerega foreclosed on the clubhouse and slip.  From then on the Club was active over the years.  During these years many of Sayville, Bayport, and West Sayville young, and some older, sailors continued to race many boats from Stars and P boats down to Snipes in Great South Bay Yacht Racing Association regattas.  However, through the efforts and determination of Doug Westin and other members, the Club was kept alive and was always represented in the Official races of GSBYRA and the National regattas of the various classes.  During these trying years the annual dues were $5.00. Meetings were usually held in the Commodore's home.

Profile :

By my name, I guess you can tell I was fairly well off in my youth, but
with a slight twist. I am the bastard son of Lord Elric. Father had and
still has many ‘side’ projects, and I was the result of one of them. I
don’t know who my mother was, but she was of foreign blood, hence the
unique name. Father kept me because he pitied my mother. I was raised
with a silver spoon in my mouth, and I can’t complain. It is a very
comfortable lifestyle.
I generally enjoyed the spoils of being son of a Lord, except when his
true children came around. They knew that I was different, in my hair
color, in my skin tone, and they knew that I didn’t actually belong.
Since a couple of the boys were older and bigger than me, I usually
ended up doing ridiculous tasks for them, generally designed to see if
they could humiliate me. I found that I was very nimble however, and
even when I had to complete a dangerous task, I was able to avoid the
true danger rather deftly. Some of my ‘favorite’ tasks included taking a
pile of dung from the bull’s pen just outside of town, cutting off the
tail of 3 bucks, stealing a pie every hour from the kitchen (one of my
half-brothers has a sweet-tooth, and a weight problem to go along with
it), and the last one that I completed before I left home, kill a
mongbat. Now, that doesn’t seem too difficult, but for a 9 year old
child, who only has access to a short spear or a dagger (my brothers had
connections in the armory, and that’s what they brought) I was in way
over my head. But I wasn’t going to let them get the best of me. I was
going to show those idiots what I was made of. Little did I know that I
was going to get out by the skin of my teeth. To prove I had done it, I
was to bring back the hand of the mongbat. So, I chose my weapon, the
short spear, and went out.
My father had given me a dagger for my 8th birthday, so I had a backup.
The short spear is REALLY heavy when you are just slightly taller than
it is. I had to sneak out under the cover of darkness so that I could
complete the task without anyone discovering I was gone, and with a few
quick moves, I was out the North gate. I wandered around in the forest
for a while, looking for the mongbat. I was dressed in my leather
jerkin, my boots, a decorative helmet from off the wall outside my room
(way too big, but a little defense is always welcome) and a pair of
riding gloves, dagger stuck under my belt.
As I wandered through to a clearing to sit down and rest, I saw it…the
mongbat. I was huge! On large wings, it flew up and grabbed a bird with
it’s teeth, snapping bones as it clamped down on the defenseless
creature. I decided it was time. I ran out into the clearing, screaming
and waving the short spear in the air, which, to my dismay, caught in a
branch and stayed behind as I ran further into the clearing. Realizing I
had no weapon in hand, I hit the ground as the beast swooped to attack
me. It passed over me, and I rose, drawing my dagger. It landed, and ran
for me. Having a year to practice with the dagger, I was sure it wasn’t
going to join the short spear, which was a good 20 paces behind me. I
slashed and stabbed at the mongbat, who had landed and began to approach
me. I struck first, catching it in the arm, which was a good strike,
considering it reduced his attacking power. The limp arm took my
attention too long, however, and the mongbat knocked me over with a wave
of it’s wings. I lay, stunned on the ground, as the creature, mouth full
of sharp teeth grinned over me before opening it’s mouth in order to
consume me. But, it stopped shortly, and fell upon me. I screamed in
fear, thinking something even worse had discovered us, but it was my
Father’s Personal Spy/Assassin (who is also my ward) Silk. It was Silk
who showed me how to use my dagger as a deadly weapon, and had done so,
landing the dagger in the back of the head of the mongbat with godlike
precision. He dragged me out from underneath the dead mongbat, dusted me
off, and asked me what I was doing out here. I told him of the deeds
that I was told to do, and he understood my motivation. He grabbed his
dagger from out of the mongbat’s head, and cut off the hand, which he
gave to me. “We’ll keep this our secret, but it’s time for you to move
on, living in a castle is more dangerous for you than living with
commoners.”
And that’s how I got to Trinsic. I was escorted (more like, followed in
hiding) by Silk, until I got to the town, where I was told by Silk to
take a letter he had given me to the blacksmith. I wandered the street
until I discovered the blacksmith, handed him the letter, and became his
apprentice (I guess it was a decree from Father)
I took the time to learn the craft, but it wasn’t for me. I usually
produced below quality equipment, except once, when I made a kryss. I
love it, it’s just perfect for my hand and the proper weight. I took to
fishing in my spare time, and I’ve gotten pretty good. (On a side note,
I haven’t for boots in years…)
My apprenticeship took me up to present day, where I met Claudia. I was
impressed with her stature, and her beauty. She came into the shop
looking for a forge to repair her own armor. I told her that I could do
it, but she trusted no one with it. She took it all off, and in pants
and a shirt, she began to do things I’d been trying to do for the past 9
years. I had no idea about blacksmithy I found out. I asked her where
she was going, and she said she was back for a moment to repair her
armour, then she was off to the Outpost. Being 18, and out of my
apprecticeship contract, I was free to do as I pleased, so I grabbed the
things my master had given me, and suited up as she replaced her armor
after repairing it. I told her I was willing to go along with her, if
she could bother with me. She said I could join her, but she wasn’t
responsible for me in any way. I agreed, and with my father’s dagger, a
kryss I had made a year ago, and a spear given to me by my master, I set
out to adventures unknown.
