Wuthering Heights and All The Fine Young Canibals

This is two films a find myself comparing. i've never seen the Larry Olivier 1939 version of WH, but was recently watching for the upteenth time Cliff Richard's acclaimed stage and video version Heathcliff of the 1990s. it so reminded me of the 1950s film All The Fine Young Cannibals. in WHs all the...

Richard Todd: Action and Adventure Star

Richard Todd was as hot as any other British actor in the 50s for making classic movies. he got of to a good start with The Hasty Heart with Ronald Reagen and Patrica Neal, though i thought his performance and the film was overrated. in America he got noticed for his role in Hitchcocks Stagefright w...

i think he outgrew them when he made Reach For The Sky. though Donald Sinden made both his Doctors after he did The Cruel Sea. Leslie Phillips who supported Peter O'Toole in Venus replaced Bogarde in the Doctor films. he was known for his catchphrases 'Hello' and Ding Dong' when chatting up a pretty...

Moira I agree about More and Bogarde in Doctor In The House, but Kenneth only appeared in the first films as did Donald Houston. however, Donald Sinden reprised his role from the first film in the 2nd sequal. in the first film Bogarde romanced nurse Muriel Pavlow, then in Doctor At Sea it was the tu...

Kenneth More's finest hour as WW2 RAF Ace

Spoiler Alert Kenneth More's best film IMO is Reach For The Sky. it's the true story of Douglas Bader, a young RAF pilot, who after a horrific plane crash in 1931 loses both his legs. he's expected to die, but recovers and learns with great courage to walk on artificial legs with out a stick. howeve...

Two Dirk Bogarde films that i wouldn't class as Kitchen Sinks, but some might are Victim and Sebastian Victim deals with the taboo subject of homosexuality six yrs before it was legalised. Bogarde plays a married, but homosexually inclined Barrister. a young man he was attracted to is murdered and h...

it's funny that Dora Bryan never became an international star after A Taste Of Honey. she remains a popular actress in the UK last seen in sit com The Last Of The Summer Wine. Rita Tushingham was a big star for a appearing in another kitchen sink drama The Knack with Ray Brooks and Michael Crawford,...

i compare The Greatest and Ali, to spot the differences on their take on Mahammad Ali. i don't think The Greatest gets the credit it deserves, because it features Ali at his pomp, playing himself as well as Robert Duval, Ernest Borgnine and James Earl Jones as Malcolm X in the cast. i think kids wou...
