Green For Danger
Thelma Connell began her career in film as a ‘continuity girl’ before moving up the ranks to editor. In Green for Danger, an engrossing whodunit set in a World War II emergency hospital, Connell uses economical editing to build tension (particularly in the memorable operating theatre sequences). The eccentric Inspector Cockrill is tasked with investigating a string of mysterious deaths in the rural hospital, played with comedic flair by Alastair Sim. This underrated gem of British cinema mixes sly humour with suspense to delightful effect.
The film will be introduced by Dr Melanie Bell from the University of Leeds.
