History on a Gibbonian scale. Unflinching and frignhtening in its analysis of how the ordinary Hans and Hannah embraced mass murder during the Third R eiich.. Thei nation of Bach and Beethoven in Bedlam.

The original scrript of RC Sherriff's play, first staged in 1928 and very apt for the centenary rtites for the trench warriors of 191k4..The production was directed by Michael Whale who made a film of it in the 1930s and stayed on in Hollywood to direct the Boris Karloff Frankenstein movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars A legacy of filmic treasures from the late 1940s., 5 Nov. 2014

This review is from: The Heiress [DVD] (DVD)
Superbly acted all round. De Haviland and Richardson mesmeric. Superb photography, too, and imaginative direction by Wyler. A cinematic legacy from 1947. No story of Henry James has been better done on screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Philip Larkin as a Luxury--yet cheaper than a two mile bus ride., 12 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In spite of its low price, this is a luxury object, worthy of a conspicuous place on the top shelf of anybody's verse collection. The book is beautifully bound and printed, easy to hold in the hand on buses and trains and planes, and also in bed, preferably in the company of a literate and good-humoured beautiful woman. Larkin is a maestro of the slick and cutting put-down, but also compellingly humane. His language seems deceptively ordinary, but dig half a centimetre beneath its surface and you strike gold. He is one of the five very great English poets of the 20th century. This edition is a credit to its publishers and to its typographers. One hundred out of a hundred. Buy two or three copies in case you are foolish enough to give two away, and have the third one nicked by an evil party guest. Andrew Grimes

1.0 out of 5 stars Critical and Historical Essays , Volume II ny Thomas Babington Macaulay, 20 Mar. 2011
Without an index tool this book is impossible to navigate. Even at its low price it is a waste of money _and space. Not worth a tinsel star. My first disappointment since buying my Kindle, and I hope my last. Andrew Grimes , Manchester.
