Brain Damage has now had a chance to see the new movie, "Bright Young Things", mentioned below, which opened in Britain on Friday.

For those of you interested in how much Mason there is on screen, here's the lowdown: there's a seven minute motor racing sequence, shot at a heavily disguised Brooklands Racing Circuit. The film is set in the 1930s and a good job has been done at creating a convincing atmosphere - even better than the Goodwood Revival Festival!

The sequence has four cars racing; one of which the driver is replaced in a pit-stop by one of the lead female actresses. This car is driven by the lovely Mrs Mason - Annette drives in all the long shots where you cannot see the driver's face clearly. She is racing against hubby Nick, who drives throughout the sequence. Both are credited at the end of the movie, as are Ten Tenths, Nick's car company.

The rest of the film is a look at the questionable morals of the "beautiful people" of the time, and will be enjoyed by those who enjoy the writing of the likes of Waugh and Coward; personally I found chunks of the film a "frightening bore darling..."
