Excellent film. Some years ago a pilot was arrested for pretending to be drunk walking through the passenger aisle to the cabin. Now I realise he may not have beeen pretending! I'll still fly though

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Althouth a little dated, it was a most well acted and interesting film. Having been to Haworth on many occasions, it brought back happy memories, and so little has changed over the past 100 years or so. The tragedy of the whole family and their difficult lives was very well shown. I f you are interested in the most famous of English literary families, this film is well worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great film, 17 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After seeing AMISTAD some years ago, I found this an interesting follow up, but not so effective I thought.
Another view of the slave trade in U.S.A. but I feel not so rivetting as AMISTAD. Still worth a buy and I was not seriously disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A historical sail through France., 17 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
1946. A year after the World's greatest war. A British retired newspaper reporter reclaims a large boat in the Hamble, near Southampton, gets it into seagoing condition with assistance of his wife Isabel, and sails from England via Paris, and canal and river system to Marseilles, on to Italy and Greece. Full of never to be seen again human moments, German prisoners of war in various situations, canal folk, good bad, and indifferent, problems with the weather, the boat and people.
Long gone famous people, artists, writers, millionaires,etc all add to this wonderful read.
If you have any interest in boating, canals, history, people, relationships you should try this book.
Some cheap copies available but some seriously expensive originals to. Wish I had hung on to my original all those years ago. Well worth a second read

5.0 out of 5 stars historical "pot boiler", 17 Jun. 2014

This review is from: The War Lord [DVD] (DVD)
Although not factual, a good film non the less. Heston always made great films and whilst no comparison to Ben Hur it is still worth a saturday afternoon's viewing. Saw it years ago and glad I got it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars not to be missed., 17 Jun. 2014

This review is from: Amistad [DVD] (DVD)
A moving true story of a moment in the slave trade. Not to be missed if you want to see, or wish to show others, how this abomnation of man's inhumanity to man affected all who came into contact with it.
Although slavery was not started by Europeans but by Africans, (and still is carrying on,see Nigeria) this film brings to the fore the effects, good and bad, and is a real cliffhanger as the end approaches. Top Marks for it.
