Hutton Playtime in Hollywood – Station Six Sahara 1963
There was a certain kind of Brit who wore Hutton Playtime – often slightly dodgy, a bit louche. Bryan Forbes was one, even Roy Kinnear, but here we have the great Scot Ian Bannen who specialized in greasy run down characters always looking to upset the status quo in any movie. Here he is in Mr Forbes’ penned Station Six Sahara by a similar character called Fletcher.
Directed by cult British director Seth Holt* about a oil drilling company station way out in the desert run by cold blooded German Peter Van Eyck and into which arrives blond bombshell Carroll Baker who upsets the delicate male egos.
Denholm Elloitt (another one who could have worn Playtime) is fantastic as a kind of weasely upper class ex soldier hiding out in the Sahara.
Bannen can be clearly seen taking off and putting on his Hutton Playtime.
Good movie worth a watch!
*Nerd fact, Holt’s classic Nowhere to Run had Maggie Smith wearing desert boots!
