This review is from: This is My Street [DVD] (DVD)
well worth the money. brilliant acting from everyone, i really enjoyed this movie, its a shame that most actors these days are wooden when compared to these actors, the cast bring a real natural essence to the screen, typical of fantastic British artists of the time. i am not going to troll through the synopsis, just to write ,that, these type of movies especially This is my street, is just FANTASTIC.

Fantastic Dirk Bogarde and Dina Sheridan, brilliantly portrayed accounts of bomber command, detailed Pathfinder sequences with how the main bomber stream would find and bomb its target. wonderfully acted film, very entertaining,worth watching.

Nothing here about leonards life, more about what he has done in acting, pity no one had got down to investigate his life with family members etc and write a PROPER biography.

5.0 out of 5 stars smashing read, 24 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
always remembered jack warner playing PC Dixon when i was a kid, the friendly copper. a wonderful account of his life before radio and tv stardom, being a racing driver at brooklands,fluent in french,garage owner etc, i still enjoy watching jacks films especially, The Blue Lamp, great film, which he played PC george dixon well before Dixon of dock green. Jacks makes a comment on the todays performers ( aka 1972)who think entertainment is, dirty jokes and smut,well today in 2012 nothing has changed. TV is boring and bland, so im glad to see that, good old fashioned Dixon of Dock Green is to be released on dvd,hooray,oh yes, do read this lovely book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Many thanks to the real Pathfinders, 3 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Many reviews are knocking the picture quality, though the dvd company could have sorted this out, i have to say i am enjoying it, i am presently reading a book on The Lancaster Bomber,the Pathfinders dvd and book really compliament each other, for instance, 1st dvd episode 2, For better for worse, the aircrew in a pub get all roudy and fight,but reading the book, this is how some aircrews were able to cope with tension and let off steam, while others turned to heavy drinking. Anyway, the original war time scenes are very good, the shows own shots of planes taking off and landing are slightly hazy, but this helps i think to paint a texture on the moment, very well done. some reviewers seem to forget, that in the early 1970's when this show was in production, there were no computer graphics to assist, so stop moaning about the picture quality on your plasma tv's and just thank god that these men in real pathfinders stepped up to the mark so we can live freely today at the expense of their lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars thanks nigel kneale, 3 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Remember watching this as a kid and being scarred out of my whits, how many actors can play a character these days without uttering a word and be totally convincing? Richard Wordsworth who plays Victor Caroon did, the film is a bit out dated, but back in the 50's it must have being futuristic, anyway it knocks socks off so called sci-fi movies these days, remember, NO computer aided graphics those days, Jack Warner appears as our wholesome inspector. I think the movie still stands up well for today and im glad i bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb, 3 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Quatermass 2 [IMPORT] (DVD)
Fantastic writing by Nigel Kneale, the BBC tv show is great, although, this is a good movie, a bit over the top Prof Quatermass played by brian donlevy, apparently nigel kneale did not want him to play the part, terrible at remembering his lines, sometimes could not recall what the film was called or about, nevertheless greatly rescued film because of actors like, brian forbes, william franklin. British 1950's sci fi movies just cant be beat, worth buying and putting up youe feet for a while.
