Lastly, film director Tony Klinger, son of Repulsion’s producer Michael Klinger, made contact recently and exchanged some of his memories and anecdotes about Ian Hendry. Michael and Ian also worked together again on the classic cult film Get Carter [1971] and apparently got on famously!

Tony also shared his personal story about how that famous line ‘..eyes look like…piss-holes in the snow‘ became incorporated into the script. The article also takes a deep dive into the history of that line and origins that may well date back to WW1.
