I noticed on the IMDB that there were quite a number of smaller features that Geoffrey Unsworth made in the 1970's that are hard to find on home video. Some I realize are probably not worth the bother - for example, he shot some London scenes for an episode of "Columbo" that was mostly made in L.A. and shot by Harry Wolf, and I've seen "Three Sisters", which is just a recording of a stage play. He also did similar work for a Nureyev ballet.

The only one that seems to be on region 2 DVD in the U.K. is "The Internecine Project" starring James Coburn. Has anyone seen this movie?

The other films that he supposedly shot and are not available on DVD:
A Matter of Time
Lucky Lady (I've seen this projected)
Royal Flash
The Abdication (I saw this on cable TV once and it looks lovely)
Baxter!
Love and Pain and the Whole Damn Thing
Unman, Wittering and Zigo
Goodbye Gemini

Many of these are small films but made by significant directors, and some sound intriguing, sort of thrillers. Has anyone seen some of these, other than "Lucky Lady" and "The Abdication" (since I've seen those)?

I saw 'Royal Flash' on TV some time ago; it's in a similar first-person style to 'Young Winston' but with the callous edge you might expect from Malcolm McDowell- and Dick Lester, for that matter- it looked great but then it would. Apparently it's not on video yet. I don't recall Alistair Sim- it must have been one of his last- but IMDB reminds me he's in it, so now I want to see it again as well.
