It used to be a well known film. I'm perhaps a bit older than your average reader and I recognized it immediately. Its best remembered these days as containing the only recorded performance on film of the Yardbirds with both Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton, a lineup that lasted perhaps 6 months.
There was an American remake of the film called Blow-Out starring John Travolta as a movie sound man who recorded a murder on tape. Personally, I liked the original better but then I've never liked JT or much of anything he was ever in. I don't recall any mimes in that movie, though.
Shedding readers is understantable when you go from a thrice weekly to weekly format, but you gotta do what you gotta do.
