Brighton Rock

So dated - more a piece of social history now !

(Edit) 19/05/2020

The stilted filming , the excessive stereotyping, and the inevitable ending , made this a dull watch but it was made in 1947 ! 

The language itself is a reminder of how our values and culture had changed !

Kind Hearts and Coronets

Alec Guinness and Derek Price at their best .

(Edit) 14/04/2020

A wonderful slightly black comedy which left you feeling you shouldn’t be laughing but were . Great character portrayals with a perfect level of exaggeration. The final moments were perfect.

The Lavender Hill Mob

Clean old fashioned humour

(Edit) 01/04/2020

This was my first introduction to The Ealing Comedies and it was a refreshing, simple romp with some great acting from a young Alec Guinness and rotund Stanley Holloway. 

Such straightforward stuff to raise the spirits post WW 2 and now in the thick of a 2020  pandemic.
