Great Gatsby Ver6 Movie Metal Poster Tin Plate Sign 8"x12"

4.0 out of 5 stars It says what it is on the tin!, 7 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Small but perfectly formed! Well packaged & arrived on time. I would love to have this, on tin, but 4 times the size! (Guess that would make it rather more expensive, too!).


Shooting the Past (1999) [DVD]
Shooting the Past (1999) [DVD]
Dvd ~ Lindsay Duncan
Price: 6.39

5.0 out of 5 stars Poliokoff at his best!, 18 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mesmerising, emotional & deeply thought provoking. After viewing this you will never look at a photograph in the same way again- ever. I watched this on T.V. when it first came out; I loved it then & now buying it on DVD I am as enchanted as ever.
Lindsay Duncan is magnificently compelling as the'Storyteller' of the pictures, like the Pied Piper, you follow her, unable to resist the lure of her voice as each still frame reveals another chapter of a life of that has been captured in time. Brilliant! View it & weep!


Shopping, Seduction & Mr Selfridge
Shopping, Seduction & Mr Selfridge
Price: 2.57

4.0 out of 5 stars Every Business Student Should Read This!, 18 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The television production, naturally, added & developed characters to add DRAMA to a life that had heaps. I found this a fascinating study of the man, but also gained a real understanding of how far ahead of his time this man really was. Anything that's happening in 'selling' now, Selfridge thought of it first! This was well-researched & well-written & Lindy Woddhead managed to keep the business side of things interesting, while never losing sight of this complex, many faceted & ultimately rather tragic character.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Insight into the Man & His Movies, 18 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's all been said by many before me, but this is a masterpiece for anyone who is really interested in the works of Hitchcock & really wants to understand his thought process. Hitchcock's observations are intelligent, insightful & laced with his dry wit. Trauffaut made this happen by his obvious enthusiasm and minute knowledge of Hitchcock's movies & the rapport of the two men, who obviously liked each other. One can now understand why so many enjoyed these long conversations on set where Hitchcock described every shot; he's not boring, he's fascinating!

3.0 out of 5 stars Spoto not Spellbound by Hitchcock!, 18 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Donald Spoto is as Spelllbound by Hitchcock's leading ladies as Hitchcock was, but has cast Hitchcock as a throughly unpleasant character who had no redeeming features. The prism of his view appears to be totally coloured by Tipi Hedren's experience of Hitchcock, which was one in which she failed to see any humour in him whatsoever & viewed him as a disgusting & predatory old man. One cannot deny this aspect to him, but one feels that Spoto is not an objective observer & tends to play down, or dismiss the affection that some of his former 'ladies' felt for him. its interesting that Spoto, Hendren & Kim Novak all had Scandanavian 'roots' & none of them found anything humerous about Hitchcock at all....


The Blue Dress Girl
The Blue Dress Girl
Price: 5.03

3.0 out of 5 stars The Blue Dress Girl Didn't Impress me Much, 18 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose this book because I love books which are set in China & Japan. This didn't have a bad plot, but the writing was a bit pedantic & the book tended to chunter along, rather than absorb you into the world of the story. Historical research had been done, but the end result felt more like an exercise in painting by numbers, with the predominant colour leaving me blue!

3.0 out of 5 stars Adoring Homage to Grace from Besotted Author., 11 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite a detailed biography of the lovely Grace. However, Spoto lacks a sense of humour and glossses over Grace's friendship with Hitchcock as he so obviously despises the man & it is beyond his comprehension how any woman could have found him funny, or could ever have been genuinely fond of him. He also contradicts himself; arguing in one part that Grace did not have a relationship with Ray Milland, then later in the book blithely saying she did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hitchcock Understood!, 11 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well written, informative, beautifully illustrated & showed, what I felt, was a real understanding of Hitchcock's dry humour, which Donald Spoto, in his works, misses completely!
