I Missed The Mabel

Mabel Aitken as 'Tracy' in "I Saw the Beast"Oh-my-blog, despite claiming to be a fan of elusive Scottish actress Mabel Aitken, it’s taken me over a year-and-a-half to realise that a new credit has been added to her IMDb page! As punishment for this egregious negligence, I’m making myself type this post with a pencil that I’ve taped to my nose, with the sharpened end jabbing into my forehead… so, it could take a while… ouchie… ouch… ouch…

Anyhoo, I Saw the Beast (2016) is a three-minute-long comedy short, set in the late-1970s, starring (yay!) Aitken as an obsessive spotter tracking a Bigfoot-like creature in a local forest, and returning home with scraps of inconclusive evidence to display to her disinterested husband. It’s a pretty slight skit overall, but it does give Aitken some fun comedy business to do, and it’s artfully shot, with a couple gorgeous close-ups of her smiling straight at the screen, so I’m certainly not complaining!
