Lads and Lasses
I have inherited two books which I already have copies of. They are "Victorian and Edwardian Dundee and Broughty Ferry" by Peter Adamson and R. Lamont-Brown and "The Hungry Thirties" by well known Dundee worthy the late David Phillips. The former is a series `of photographs including a couple related to the local militia and the latter is a series of tales of Dundee happenings and people relating to the title. I've been trying to think up a question based on the Oor Wullie theme of recognising WW1 sites but seeing as I've never visited any it's kind of difficult. So in an effort to get these books away out of my office I'm offering them as a prize, post paid, to the first person who can answer the following question:
in my previous post I mention the famous WW1 novel "A Covenant with Death" by John Harris. In a very famous 60's film, a major actor of the time, who is playing what is really a bit part, recites some more of this quotation from Isaiah 28:14-15*
"Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.
Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement"
What is the film and who is the actor?**
* now you know why I never post on a Sunday
** The film is not WW1 related but the subject has been raised on this Forum recently
By the way the books are really, really interesting and well worth racking your brains for (no, really)
