The Films of Terence Fisher

Liverpool University Press

This chapter talks about the completion of Four Sided Triangle, which was received as just another science-fiction programmer at the time, and marked no immediate advance in Terence Fisher's status as a director. It discusses the importance of rehearsal to Fisher, sp much that even in his lowest budgeted films, he always insisted on some time to work with the actors on the floor. It also describes how Fisher rehearsed the actors just before the cameras rolled and shot the scene immediately when he was happy with the results. The chapter recounts Fisher's method of working on a film in 1973, from the first day of shooting onward. It looks at Fisher's work in television, such as his directorial work on an episode of Colonel March of Scotland Yard in 1956, a half-hour detective series with occasional supernatural overtones.

Keywords:   Terence Fisher, Four Sided Triangle, science fiction, Colonel March of Scotland Yard, detective series, supernatural overtones
