All this is interesting stuff. I don't think Polanski (Ninth Gate), and Kubrick (Eyes Wide Shut) were consciously imitating Dennis. The crux of the matter is to what extent Dennis influenced or created the whole Devil Worship genre in 20th century film-making? But then wasn't Dennis himself reviving...

Bob Thanks for this. I wonder how those journalists got hold of DW's unpublished memoirs? I have a suspicion that they may have been working on, or at least have been thinking about, a full biography. Is there any reason why a full biography of DW has not been published? Is it because of the Hutchin...

Letter for Posterity: video/DVD recording?

I managed to miss the recent BBC4 progamme on Dennis Wheatley. Very annoying. I wondered if anyone has managed to record this on either video or DVD, and if a copy could be made available? I'm sure other DW afficinados who missed the programme would be most interested. Secondly, does anyone know if ...
