These are from Kiss and Tell.

It's available on Amazon if you can manage to order one, (not sure about the Region codes :? ) but I highly recommend it if you can get it......good story as well as the added bonus of The Pup.

I think it may be the director for Hotel Splendide, Terence Gross, but as I can't find a photo of him, then I'm certainly not sure. :?

It is Simon Cellan-Jones, the director of Some Voices which they were promoting at the Festival.

The top notch acting in the Weisz/Craig/Spall 'Betrayal' is emotionally true, often v funny and its beautifully staged with filmic qualities..

Wow, just wow. I love these photos. Since that was the film premiere of Some Voices - why didn't he stand by a poster? That would help a lot! He didn't look like Ray that time, his hair is all spiky! Oh how I wish that I have a time machine.

Daniel and his pals had formed a school band called ‘Inner Voices’ and were about to enter a national competition run by the Trustees Savings Bank. The School had agreed to let them go into a professional studio to record their chosen song, ‘House of the Rising Sun’.

(Pictured Left to Right) Adam Brierley (Keys) Paul Donnelly (Drums) Andy Fennah (Rythmn Guitar) Danny Craig (Vocals) Paul King (Lead Guitar).

But when Alan Fennah, brother of rhythm guitarist Andy, turned up to produce the session he was in for a shock – the band didn’t have the money to pay for it. Andy Fennah said: One of our school teachers accompanied us and was supposed to be paying. I think she had assumed that, as the song was four minutes long, we would only need about ten minutes of studio time! The teacher was horrified when she found out that it would take hours - and wanted to call the whole thing off. ”

Not wanting to disappoint his kid brother, Alan stumped up the cash and the song was recorded with Daniel Craig taking the lead vocal. Alan said: “Danny came across as very quiet and unassuming lad but as soon as the tape started rolling he suddenly came alive. ‘House of the Rising Sun’ is a difficult song to sing as the verses are in different octaves. Given his young age I thought he made a very good job of it. I’m so pleased that he has gone on to make great films, including ‘The Trench’, which is one of my all time favourites”.

At the end of the session each member of the band took home a cassette and Alan was presented with the master tape which he duly filed away. And that was that. Unfortunately, the group didn’t win the competition and on leaving school went their separate ways (although they do still keep in touch). As for the master tape, it went missing and was never seen again. That is, until a few days ago.
Alan and older brother Rob, now writers and owners of Pulse Records and Productions Ltd, had borrowed an old TEAC reel to reel tape recorder to review some of their early demo recordings. Three hours into the task Alan pressed the ‘play’ button and blasting from the speakers was Daniel Craig and ‘House of the Rising Sun’. All those years ago Alan had put the tape in the wrong box!

Rob Fennah said: "When Daniel got the part of James Bond the media kept asking us about this tape and I don’t think they believed us when we said we’d lost it. Now that it’s re-surfaced we intend to burn only five CD copies, one for each member of the band. Alan, Andy and I hope Danny will not be too shaken, or stirred, when he receives his copy in the post. As for the master tape, we have already had big money offers from the tabloids but this is of no interest to us- we don't work that way. Instead, we have decided to give it to Daniel-for old times sake.

Hotel Splendide premiered at the Edinburgh International Filmfestival in 2000 (weekend 18/19/20 August)
This weekend sees the premieres of several big movies: The Little Vampire, The House of Mirth, Billy Elliot and Hotel Splendide. Keep an eye out for some of the stars of the films who'll be in town to promote the films. Laura Linney (best known for The Truman Show) is definitely coming along, and Julie Walters, Steven Tompkinson, Daniel Craig, Richard E. Grant and Gillian Anderson may also make an appearance.

You can see the poster of HS in one pic.

SV was released short time after the festival (September 2000), so they have been promoting that movie, too.
Also still in town is up-and-coming actor Daniel Craig who appeared with director Simon Cellan Jones for the premiere of Some Voices.

Funny note besite:
Alarming Developments

And finally... there was an unexpected disruption to normal service at the Filmhouse today as a fire alarm forced many filmgoers to evacuate the building. Reports that it had been caused by a disgruntled viewer forced to sit through Hotel Splendide have not been confirmed.

Well this movie is not for everyones liking :lol: :lol: :lol:


GOSH, the internet is a big deep box, where you can find everything:
The other big British film of the day was Hotel Splendide, described aptly by one of the audience as "a Brit cross between Delicatessen, Gormenghast and Psycho". Practically the whole cast and crew turned up to the screening (apart from Toni Collette), and Stephen Tompkinson showed himself to be in a slightly different league by arriving separately in a personal limo.

During the discussion afterwards, directpr Terence Gross revealed that the most difficult part of the film was working with the many eels needed to produce the meals served up in the kitchen. Apparently they were going to get Daniel Craig to skin a whole eel but after finding that no chef in London was willing to teach him, the production team discovered why: eels can still move around after they've been frozen for a year. Ugh!
