It was a common way of thinking at that time so Priestley's aim for the play was to influence the unconvinced in society. The Inspector, straight from his introduction, is commanding and authoritative. Upon his entrance he creates, “…at once an impression of massiveness, solidity and purposefulness.” The Inspector continues to create this impression as he progresses through his speeches and through his interrogation of the family. The Inspector remains confident, sturdy and composed, while people around him crumble and fall to pieces. His ‘solidity’ is proven by the fact he remains on task despite numerous attempts from Birling to wander away from the points he is making.

The close medium shot worked out well, because it portrayed the entire crews and camera was focusing on the Narrator, to show that he is an important person because he was standing on the middle front along with the entire crews. The movie was telling the audience that the Narrator is the most important character in Fight Club, but the audience keeps their eyes on Tyler Durden instead. If the camera were used with a long shot, the crews and the Narrator would show and film in awkward positions. Also, it would make the Narrator seem like not an important person. The film wants to show how important the Narrator is, by using the close medium shot.
The clever thing that Bennett does he doesn’t start with the molesting he allows you to get to know Hector in the classroom and then tells you about the molesting on the motorbike, so once you think you know Hector and are ready to pass a judgement all of a sudden you are aware about this other side of him.

It is first noted that something seems out of the ordinary and quite peculiar with Truman’s Behaviour. You can see Truman has obtained some form of understanding about his peculiar reality; he acts as if he is having a one on one conversation with the viewer. When he does begin to resume normal action, he role-plays with himself about proclaiming a new world ‘Trumania’ which he has already done (with the actual world being so focused on him). These actions are also foreshadowing his release/ escape into a new world. When Truman finishes by saying ‘that ones for free’ we as an audience see the point in his life where he knows he is being watched and that something about his current reality is

The play starred just four actors; Martyn Ellis, Josefina Gabrielle, Simon Gregor and Simon Paisley Day who had to play all of the characters. The Fiery Angel production company approached Patrick Barlow to adapt the script, which then lead to the success of the play in the west end. ‘The Thirty-Nine Steps’ is an incredibly fast-paced story about one man named Richard Hannay who gets caught up in the adventures of a spy.
