(Opposite) Stephen meeting Mark Lester & Ron
Moody at an "Oliver!" event in London: 18 May 2013 and me in a
traditional cinema projection room back in the golden days when films were on film?
Born 1955 and raised in Newcastle upon Tyne I "consider myself" a Geordie
at heart. A Geordie who enjoys a great film rather than football? My schooldays were something of an ordeal (though there were
some good memories) and so I was eager to leave and begin earning my
keep. At the tender age of 16 years I entered film exhibition working
for Great Britain's Odeon cinema chain as a trainee cinema technician.
I first saw "Oliver!" whilst on holiday with my parents in Torquay,
England. As an avid 13-year-old Doctor Who and science fiction fanatic I
remember recoiling at the notion of seeing a musical film. However, my
prejudice was soon set aside by the sheer spectacle of the production. I

So why the website? Working in cinema gave me the opportunity to
collect certain memorabilia. In particular a rather unique collection of
material from Oliver. So, when the time came to create a web site of my
own and begin to explore all the multimedia aspects of the web. I could
only think of one choice of subject...Oliver!
This fan based (non commercial) website was created as a respectful
celebration of the musical movie "Oliver!" The scanned images presented
for your viewing pleasure are taken from original photos in my personal
collection. Naturally I acknowledge and respect the copyright and trade
marks of all items used in the creation of this tribute website.
With special thanks to...
