FF - Film Noir 200902


Film noir

The helicopter’s engine stammered.

“Guys, there’s something wrong. We’re losing power.”

*       *       *

Meanwhile, in the film studio:


“Good morning, MacDonald…”

“Cut! For goodness sake beef up the accent, David. This is Glasgow, not Edinburgh.”

The famous star nodded acquiescence.

*       *       *

“I can’t find anything wrong, but the engine is misfiring.”

*       *       *


David spoke. What he spoke was unintelligible apart from the words MacDonald and Barlinnie.

“Cut! Alright, you’ve had your fun. Let’s shoot some decent footage, shall we?”

*       *       *

“We’re going down!”

With a roar like an avalanche the helicopter smashed through the roof of the film studio.
