David McCallum, pre-Ilya Kuryakim and sub-Pinkie Brown, in VIOLENT PLAYGROUND, a preachy but punchy social realist thriller from Basil Dearden, now under the eye of The Forgotten, over at The Daily Notebook.

McCallum, in his late seventies but still looking great, and without any telltale taut shininess, must have a portrait in his attic. But before you rush to copy him, remember: it has a to be a portrait of you.

In other news: a DETOUR limerick. And if you look around over at Limerwrecks, you’ll find more. A LOT more.
