The Last Beach Holiday of Summer

Google Alert has alerted me to the online existence of the trailer of Roman Polanski's black comedy "Cul-de-Sac," shot on Holy Island off the coast of England. My dad's the raspy-voiced thug with his arm in a sling.

I remember sitting with him in a darkened room in Paris, during my 5th-grade Christmas holiday, while he dubbed dialogue over a scene in which he pushed a car over a causeway onto the island. The film netted him a hernia along with a Grand Prize at Cannes.
