Look what's on the Press Association news wires today:



The star of a new film about Morris dancing said tonight that he hoped it would help the "quintessentially English" pastime flourish.

Sir Derek Jacobi insisted that the tradition would never die out as colourfully-dressed Morris men danced for crowds at the premiere of Morris: A Life With Bells On in London's Leicester Square.

Actors including Emma Thompson, husband Greg Wise, Sir Derek and Harriet Walter attended the premiere of the comedy faux-documentary which follows the fortunes of Millsham Morris, one of the leading sides in the country.

Sir Derek, who plays traditionalist Quentin Neely, said the film was made with "no budget, no money, but a lot of heart, love and passion".

He said he hoped it would help Morris dancing flourish, adding: "It will survive whatever anybody says. It's a wonderfully eccentric part of English tradition. It's quintessentially English."

Charles Thomas Oldham wrote and produced the film and starred as its leading character, Derecq Twist.

He said: "I was immersed in Morris dancing from a young age. It's in my DNA."

Oldham's wife, Lucy Akhurst, who directed the film and appeared in it as a physiotherapist, said she hoped it would be picked up in the United States.

She added: "We'd love to take it to the States and introduce the world to the Morris."

It was featured on GMTV this morning, though there was the inevitable undertone of giggles from the presenters.

It turned out one of the cameramen was a Morris man, so I hope he had words with them after the show.

Nevertheless, this is a case of all publicity is good publicity as I think some of it was the embarrassment of the English at something they see as somewhat cranky and are not confident enough to say "its ours and no one else's"

Enjoyed the film (in Cambridge) and the TV programme, but one criticism. The lack of musicians playing for the dancing was noticeable. The writer and producer who were there for a Q&A session, said it was due to lack of budget to pay the musicians. I wonder how much (or how little) they would have done it for?

They said the soundtrack is released tomorrow.

Pretty good film. One thing that struck me was the quality of the acting - I thought several actors had to be major stars I'd somehow not recognized, but on looking at the credits realized they were just about all unknowns (Dominique Pinon apart). They dominated the screen with total confidence (two that really made an impression were the black girl and the batty academic with her pile of Readers Digest Condensed Books).

One small plot hole. What did anybody actually DO to change the Morris Circle's mind? There should have been something to imply in at least vague terms that somebody had done something pretty persuasive, but you didn't find out a thing.

There were some fairly well known actors in it, I thought. Derek Jacobi is the obvious one, but Harriet Walter as the batty academic, Sophie Thompson as Will's missis and Ian Hart as the Moss Side Squire.

I take you're point, though, that the leading characters were played by really good actors who aren't as well known.

I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lovely camera work - it looked beautiful.

Great afternoon! I think some of the more Morris-y jokes went over the heads of some of the Scottish audience, but there was plenty of laughter, if no dancing. I also noticed the lack of musicians. Harriet Walter (Emeritus Professor of International Folk Dance, Cambridge University, no less) played a blinder as did Derek Jacobi as the CEO of the Morris Circle in his resplendent London office overlooking the "gherkin"! As for the very camp Californian team...........!
It was just one showing in the Cameo's smallest auditorium and sold out: I expect the bigger halls were half-empty! I'd be more than happy to see it again!
There was also a recruiting drive going on to start an Edinburgh Morris team, with plenty of folk signing up either to dance or to play for the dancers. (and yes, we'll prob all do it for nowt, John J!)

They showed it in Aberdeen yesterday. Rob danced with Banchory Morris before, during, and after the film.'During' was because they were having technical problems playing the film, and the audience was entertained with more live Morris dancing while they were trying to get it going. Unfortunately, it broke down again in almost the same place, so they never got to watch the end.

I hope they can show it again, after I get there. I missed out by 13 days! Still in Oz, but not for much longer! I haven't seen the film yet, but I really want to. Rob said it was hilarious!

Screen 1 at the Regal Playhouse in Henley was full yesterday and the show was preceded by 1 hour of dancing from two sides in the cinema courtyard, liberally aided (in my case) by bottles of Henley Dark.

The film was all I expected of it and more - wouldn't have missed it for the world. I had tears of laughter in my eyes throughout most of it. The jokes were coming thick and fast and most were not "in jokes" so should be understood by a general audience(how about the Frenchman's "Cantona" dictum? Or the very name "Moss Side" with the thick Liverpudlian accent and the tattoos and rings?). I also noted Saul Rose and Paul Sartin among the muso credits - good for the lads!

Jack Campin, the Moss Side Squire did say that "words were had" with the CEO of the Morris Circle implying persuasion tactics reminiscent of the real Moss Side's gang warfare of old - and let the imagination fill in the rest!
