Mutiny on the Bounty [ 1935 ] with extra's
Mutiny on the Bounty [ 1935 ] with extra's
Dvd ~ Clark Gable
Offered by brrsales
Price: £7.49

4.0 out of 5 stars Old Classic, 26 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Grim Charles Laughton and young and handsome Clark Gable in battle of minds, against a background that was certainly a reality in those days. The first part of the film is more engaging, while the idyllic life with pretty young ladies on an island is less interesting.


Battleship Potemkin [1925] [DVD]
Battleship Potemkin [1925] [DVD]
Dvd ~ Aleksandr Antonov
Price: £6.54

5.0 out of 5 stars To remember history, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As far as I can judge, an almost documentary-like story about the grimness of an almost war-like situation. And of course the Odessa steps has become an imitated classic scene.


Pygmalion [1938] [DVD]

This review is from: Pygmalion [1938] [DVD] (DVD)
An irresistable story that has come again and again in many versions. This is a favourite, even compared to others that I like as well, like My Fair Lady.


It Started In Naples [DVD] [1960]

5.0 out of 5 stars A most amazing couple, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They are from different worlds and are very different as actors too. But it works well and you can enjoy two professionals in a cultural Clash - plus Vittorio de Sica as a no-good charmer.


Intermezzo [DVD] [1939]
Intermezzo [DVD] [1939]
Dvd ~ Leslie Howard

5.0 out of 5 stars American version of earlier Swedish film with ingrid Bergman, 11 April 2014

This review is from: Intermezzo [DVD] [1939] (DVD)
Ingrid Bergman had played the same part with one of the at that time most famous Swedish actors (Gösta Ekman) as professor Brandt. The theme is the same but the films somewhat different. Both enjoyable.


First of the Few [1942] [DVD]
First of the Few [1942] [DVD]
Dvd ~ Leslie Howard
Offered by HalfpriceDVDS_FBA

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful with an ironic twist, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have seen it before but wanted it in my collection of "films I will see some more times before I die". The ironic twist, of course, is that actor Leslie Howard died in a flight accident later during the war.

This review is from: Rebecca [1940] [DVD] (DVD)
One of the real classics in drama category. Superb performances and thrilling. Worth watching again and again, even when you know the twist in the drama.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two alternatives of same story, 21 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Little Dorrit [1987] [DVD] (DVD)
Interesting case of two angles of the same story. Gives a certain depth to the story told. Alec Guinness magnificent as Always and Derek Jacobi totally charming.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story, 8 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
He was not set out to be a hero, but in his own way he became one. And his grief that he could have a little more goes directly to your heart.

This review is from: RKO 281 [DVD] (DVD)
Whether it is quite true or not, it is a fascinating tale about an original man and his dreams about the perfect film - which it also became.
