1961 That Man Gently
The Amateur Premiere. Set includes some setting-up photos and a few of Alan Hunter - a friend of Jack and Charles Hill from Norwich and by 1961 a successful crime thriller author with around 9 Inspector Gently books in his portfolio.
The original Gently is a Norfolk man with a lot of character similarities with Charlie Hill. Jack suspected that the character was based on Charles in the first place.
Adaptation was by Eleanor Robson Belmont, a fairly high-powered American actress and playwright.
