    This was my second collaboration with Wolfgang Suschitzky the great cinematographer that shot 'Get Carter' and took so many great black and white photographs of London in the 1930's and 1940's, I seem to remember he lit this scene with one redhead. The cast in this film had to learn his lines backwards with absolute phonetic clarity so that when shot forwards and played backwards he would lip synch forwards while the orange goes backwards! If that makes any sense, an interesting exercise. I was pretty green when I first started making films unlike a lot of young film makers today so when I was asked who I'd like to use as my DOP on my first commercial I went home and buzzed through the credits of "Get Carter", the film that had the biggest effect on me coming from the North, to find Wolfgang Suschitzky. I went in the next day and said "I'd like to work with Wolfgang Suschitsky." So the producer got ahold of him and explained that he had a test film to shoot with no money and a very young director. He agreed and I shot my first couple of commercials with him, he was in his eighties and I was in my early twenties!
