TOTALLY FANTASTIC! I've watched it over and over again. No one could have done a better job of George Smiley than Alec Guinness and his portrayal is underplayed and endlessly fascinating.

FANTASTIC! Alec Guinness took over the character of George Smiley and he was author John Le Carre's undoing because he could no longer write any more Smiley books.

Tommy Cooper was a British staple. An original and much loved comedian with his own style. He contributed a number of catch phrases to the English Language and is remembered with great fondness.

Roger Courtney wasn't a writer - he was a do'er who started the British SBS (Special Boat Service) - as opposed to the more famous SAS. He was an adventurer who lived life on the edge.

3.0 out of 5 stars THE HEART OF THE MATTER, 6 April 2013

Is a classic. However, in the acting style of the period, Trevor Howard portrayed his character's stiff Britishness in such a stilted fashion that you feel like shaking him. It is, nevertheless, worth seeing.

This review is from: Whistle Down The Wind [DVD] (DVD)
An unfailing joy to your heart and soul. Jesus Christ (in the form of an escaped prisoner) comes to a farm in the countryside in England. He is mistaken for the real thing by beautifully innocent, trusting and artless children. A perfectly lovely story.

And you can't go wrong. Brazilians make soccer into a sort of ballet. They are a joy to watch, always.

Somerset Maugham was a truly wonderful writer who had a special understanding of the human heart. I was very familiar with his work and didn't hesitate to buy this. I am very glad I did.
