Containing Multitudes Since 2004
This looks like its going to be a great new catogory!
This is a series I can thoroughly get behind.
Has Mr Gibson ever told you 'bout the time he saw JC at the BFI? He will, oh he will....
Matter'a fact he has . . . and I have envied him ever since.
Again the timing is perfect, I just started watching a recent series about British cinema on Wednesday, and the first episode is about romantic films with a hefty dollop of the show devoted to Ms. Christie (with clips of Far From the Madding Crowd set to the Kinks' Waterloo Sunset). There was also a great segment on David Lean's overlooked The Passionate Friends (from an H.G. Wells novel) which I've yet to see. Anyone got a copy?
British Film Forever, that's the series title. It's thematic rather than chronological, but interesting for some of the films it chooses to highlight.
SWAC - The Passionate Friends is great. Ann Todd is a kind of proto Julie Christie in it.
Here, my dear, allow me to moisten your parched lips...
Kreisler, that's exactly the point this docu was making. I guess the Lean film came out as part of a box set a while ago, but isn't in print anymore. Amazon.co.uk can probably help me out...
another example of the meaning 'forget about it.'
Now that's one great face.
