The Tall Guy - 30th anniversary revisit

Updated: May 5, 2023

It's been 30 years since I first saw The Tall Guy (1989) directed by Mel Smith from a script by Richard Curtis. It stars Emma Thompson in her feature film debut and Jeff Goldblum as a hapless precariously employed actor.

As a fan of films about showbiz, this was right up my street, literally, as also shot near where I was working at the time at the Dominion Theatre.

So I was delighted to spend an hour or so chatting about the film with Richard from the Betamax Video Club.
