5.0 out of 5 stars Not So Cilly Black!, 21 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cilla Black made some great recordings during her Abbey Road years and some people forget that. All the hits are here plus some obscure tracks. Many of her fans and knockers will be in for a surprise surprise! Separate the artist from her politics and cheesy TV programmes and put the whole chunk in yer cheek! You won't be disappointed! xxxx

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye Catching!, 23 July 2014
Brilliant start! Innovative plot that isn't too complicated to follow. Great effects and interesting technology. Halle Berry is superb!

Missed the whole Thomas Lang thing in the 80s despite being a scouser. Maybe I had an aversion to what I thought jazz was,but this is great. An often overlooked talent! xxxx

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive Collection, 8 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been an avid collector of Diana Ross and the Supremes albums for nearly 40 years and this is best collection I have come across featuring early, middle and later Supremes material on one CD. Not one dud track on it so seek it out!

This review is from: Talking Theatre (Paperback)
Started reading this as soon as I got it and it is very interesting but I wish the print was bigger! I'm 50 and my prescription reading glasses vary. If only it was on Kindle? Still it was a good price and has a lot of content in it. I'll stick with it cause it's right up my street.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bleak, 20 July 2011
This review is from: Island [DVD] (DVD)
I thought this film was bleakly shot, bleak content and characters. I felt that none of the characters had any redeeming features and the cinematography just dragged you into depression! Worth a look for curiosity. Maybe I might get around to reading Jane Roger's book to see if it outshines this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Could have been tougher!, 18 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lucky Break (Kindle Edition)
First of all let me say that I throughly enjoyed this book, but I would have liked to have read the orginal more cynical draft which Freud produced before showing it to her husband the successful British actor David Morrissey. Apparently she said on BBC news that when she showed him one of her earlier drafts to him he said "You've forgotten to say it's the best job in the world." After which she rewrote it. Yes the acting profession must be one of the best jobs in the world if you are successful, but many people suffer hardship, insecurity, jealousy, depression etc. Freud attempted to cover this in her book, but maybe if she had included some of her own experiences as a struggling actor rather than been influenced by the successes of others it mightn't have been such a light read! Also I would have liked the book to include the experiences of an actor from a working class background in what is basically a middle class profession! Perhaps those looking for a more cynical read should look at Barbara Ewing's The Actresses. Saying all this I would recommend Lucky Break, but there is always room for improvement.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for every collection, 3 Oct. 2001
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This album is brilliant. Pauline Murray at her best. The album was critically aclaimed when it first came out, but never reached the success it deserved. This album is a must for every collection. Buy it now and transport yourself back to the early eighties with tracks like Dream Sequence and Time Slipping. The production on this album was unusual for its time but now seems bang up to date. Oh Pauline where are you now ?
