For most of us, there is only the unattended
Moment, the moment in and out of time,
The distraction fit, lost in a shaft of sunlight,
The wild thyme unseen, or the winter lightning
Or the waterfall, or music heard so deeply
That it is not heard at all, but you are the music
While the music lasts.

T. S.  Eliot, ‘The Dry Salvages’, Four Quartets 
Last Sunday, 4th January, marked
the 50th anniversary of T. S. Eliot’s death. Kathleen and I have
produced a little film about Eliot’s time as a resident of Compayne Gardens,
West Hampstead during the First World War. It touches tangentially on the life of Mina Loy, the woman known as the ‘forgotten Modernist’, who grew up in Compayne

The film also features a portrait of Eliot
and some Eliotesque London street scenes by yet another former resident of West
Hampstead, photographer Bill Brandt, an important social documentarian of twentieth-century
British life.

Portrait of T. S. Eliot by Cecil Beaton, 1956.
Beaton’s ‘Aunt Jesse’, who was married to the Bolvian Consul-General,
lived at 74 Compayne Gardens throughout his Edwardian childhood.

    Dear Edward,

    Just to say, I think your Elliot film is excellent.

    I am a historian of West Hampstead and Kilburn.
    You say that Augustus John had a studio in Sherriff Road, do you have reference for this?

    Best wishes,
    Dick Weindling

      I've eaten many of the things on your list (and liked most of them too). I'm willing to *try* most anything – only thing I've turned down was insects. Not much can taste worse than whale blubber – at least not anything else I've ever had.

      I am completely impressed with the article I have just read. I wish the author of markhudon.com can continue to provide so much useful information and unforgettable experience to markhudon.com readers. There is not much to state except the following universal truth: Boys always say yes. Girls always say no. I will be back.

    Wonderful film! I've been inside that house because I used to work for the housing co-op that owns/owned it. It's very different from the regal Haigh-Wood abode that was portrayed in the film "Tom And Viv", though! Thanks so much for this, and also for the lovely reading of his lines.
