Sound From The Sea, A (Playhouse ITV 17 Aug 1970, Ian McShane)

A Sound From The Sea

In the mysterious ITV Playhouse entry A Sound From The Sea young hitch-hikers Tom and Charlie take refuge at a sinister inn where the landlord and his gorgeous wife are not quite what they seem.

John Collin (who played landlord King) was injured in a car accident during location filming for the play. Ian McShane had a two page feature in the TV Times promoting the play, this mostly concentrated on his sex appeal rather than the play though.
