What a treat to have All of Me available on youtube. I didn't have a chance to watch any of George's film on holiday, too much to do and the Olympics to watch. I did get to watch The House Across the Bay today, it does sag when George isn't in it, I do love Joan Bennett but even she couldn't save the bits that George wasn't in, it isn't Walter Pidgeon's finest hour, why on earth would she entertain his character? I normally like Walter Pidgeon but he's ill used here. George was great, charismatic, handsome and convincing as the guy who stretched the law and got found out. I had to suspend my disbelief at him swimming the bay then jumping back in and paying the price but belief suspended I really enjoyed his segments.
For a guy who couldn't swim he's a natural in the water, both here and Spawn of the North, he's completely convincing.
Coming back home from Austria and Germany I wondered if you knew if George could speak German?
We all had a splendid 2 weeks and were very lucky with the weather and we picked up our first puppy the day after we returned, it's like having a toddler, my visits here will have to be fit around toileting Lara and doing the holiday washing. I'm glad to be back, I missed talking movies.
