4.0 out of 5 stars A byegone age, 6 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Concours D'Elegance (Hardcover)
A wonderfully evocative review of vehicle styling, when virtually no two cars of the expensive variety were the same. When individuality was taken as read and people as well as their possessions were far more interesting than they are today. Being a car nut I could have done with more detail on the cars but the author may well have been limited to what was available. A good read.

This review is from: Mephisto [1981] [DVD] (DVD)
I have watched this film several times over the years and it has never lost its fascination . The acting is superb and the atmosphere of terror spine chilling. We are seeing more and more recent evidence of how decent Germans were dragged into and implicated in one the most unbelievable acts of crime of all time. This film gives a very clear picture of what happens when an unrestrained ambition ignoring what is happening all around him descends into hell.

3.0 out of 5 stars Time warp movie, 20 Nov. 2011

This certainly took one back to the turbulent era of European youth in violent revolt. However I either found the characters totally unbelievable or so dislikeable that this picture never really grabbed me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing little thriller, 20 Nov. 2011
An unusual plot well acted full of twists and turns not all of them believable! For car buffs there are some good shots of a pre war Lagonda racing along the Spanish coast. Perfectly acceptable viewing for a winter evening.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for Bentley enthusiasts, 20 Nov. 2011
I cannot think why I put off for so long buying this book. It's being out of print and being advertised to sell at very substantial prices may of course had something to do with it! Anyway now that I have got it I am delighted and will be buying the subsequent volume. Beautifully illustrated with detailed descriptions where possible it is a very grand publication and a must for all Bentley afficionados!

5.0 out of 5 stars A revelation!, 20 Nov. 2011
I went to the Dulwich Picture Gallery exhibition on the work of the Group of Seven and was completely blown away. The differing approaches to the painting of Canada's great wilderness I found simply fascinating. These artists were completely unknown to me until then and the exhibition encouraged me to seek further. This book is a wonderful extension to my experience and I urge any lover of art to go on the same journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bette at her best, 14 Oct. 2011
This review is from: All About Eve [DVD] (DVD)
This was one of the watersheds of one of the most extraordinary careers in Hollywood. Just when everyone had written her off she came back with a Bette no one had met before! Admittedly she cam back as Tallulah Bankhead but who cares! A divine script, peerless acting all round, George Sanders was never more George Sanders, and never ever boring in a film unusually long for the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic recording, 14 Oct. 2011
I have been hearing this recording aired on Radio 3 for what seems to be forever. The last airing was interrupted and I thought "why on earth haven't I bought this!" The fantastically low priced disc duly arrived and I have had such enjoyment since. One never tires of marvelling at Fischer-Dieskau's unequalled tone and timbre matched with such breath control. A "must have" in any record collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Period piece, 26 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I could not remember seeing this before and only bought it because I wanted to catch up on everything Peter Finch had done! A very strange film, typical of the self conscious period which was the Swinging Sixties but with an interesting plot and very strong characterisation which was superbly acted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lemmon at his best, 26 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Save The Tiger [DVD] (DVD)
I saw this many years ago and its poignancy has remained with me. Simply the best character role Lemmon ever had and though he commits criminal acts his desperation to keep his business going and people in their jobs makes everything forgiveable. The sense of weariness is overwhelming and yet he keeps going. Wonderful performance and an excellent supporting cast.
