5.0 out of 5 stars Sea Adventures of Francis Drake., 10 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Terence Morgan, very often played a villain in movies but here he took on a very different character. He portrayed Drake, as a hero, a moralistic, courage and decent man. Morgan was excellent as Sir Francis. Stories good and well acted. A lot of real characters from history were introduced in many of the stories,. I particularly liked the episode 'Visit to Spain' (don't ask me why) Was shown as a 'taster' on Youtube.

Not at all bad. Not as frightening or gruesome as the trailer seemed to make it. A modern hammer film, to me not like the old ones. I thought the film was not as you would expect.

This review is from: 42nd Street [DVD] [1933] (DVD)
I thought it was very good. Probably one of the first talking pictures. Relied more on the dramatic story, I thought, than the songs. Should have shown more of the musical numbers. Excellent musical my second favourite after The Desert Song. I saw the same musical, 42nd Street, to a packed audiences in a theatre a few months ago, Still had the story of the lonely stage producer, but plenty of colourful, glitzy numbers, which the film should have had. There was colour for films at that time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learning Italian book., 10 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Italian Step by Step (Hardcover)
I think very good. All articles on conversation contain lines in English, the equivalent sentence in Italian and the phonetic pronunciation of the Italian sentences. If you can learn all the words in the book you will be able to converse generally with an Italian. A good book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book for learning German., 10 Feb 2013

This review is from: German Step by Step (Hardcover)
Charles Berlitz very good for learning languages. Each article written in German, English and phonetic pronunciation of the German language expressed in each article. If you learn the words in the book you will be able to have a general conversation with a German. My tip is to use these books and alternate between two languages, I feel this will make it easier to comprehend foreign languages.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Invaders -1960's American Scifi series, 10 Feb 2013

This review is from: Invaders (DVD)
Good stories. Roy Thinnes very believable as David Vincent, an architect by profession who stumbles on plans of Aliens on this Earth, disguised as humans--their aim to conquer. Good Stories, well acted. Good to see the episodes in colour. When first shown on British tv could only be seen in black and white.. Went for the second series straight away. Not sure if I am right, but I thought there was at least a series 3 and a series 4. Good fopr general viewing not just for Scifi fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Invaders-Earth Enemies, 10 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Invaders Season 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Good stories. Well made. Roy Thinnes carries each episode very well. The alternative world where beings from other planets are enemies of the Earth. Human stories are in the episodes and human attributes are given to the Aliens, presupposing that beings from other worlds want to conquer this world. David Vincent manages to thwart their ambitions during each episode. Good for general viewer not just Scifi fans

5.0 out of 5 stars Jack the Ripper Film-based on the first story of who he was., 10 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jack Lo Squartatore (1959) (DVD)
One of the best Jack the Ripper films. In black and white with a touch of colour at the traumatic end, Contains scenes that were deleted for British audiences at the time(1958), Story based on possibly the first book, written about Jack the Ripper, written in the 1920's. Not fiction, but non-fiction about a supposedly real man. (Perhaps the first story was, after all the speculations that came later, the real one.)
