Alan Hume - 1924-2010

Quick post today, to let you know of the passing of one of Britains legends of cinema, Alan Hume. Hume was a cinematographer on films as diverse as Return Of The Jedi, the James Bond classic A View To A Kill, A Fish Called Wanda and Shirley Valentine. But it is for his work on many of the British Carry On… films that he gained his reputation in the industry. We tip our had to his body of work today.

Mr Hume was 85.

Normally detesting these kinds of bios, Rodney's keen love of film more often outclasses his ability to write convincingly about them. Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman. As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney's love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
