La Ronde [1950] [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Anton Walbrook
La Ronde [1950] [DVD] DVD ~ Anton Walbrook
5.0 out of 5 stars Celluloid Heroes, 1 Feb 2014
David Thomson's brilliant book 'A Biographical Dictionary of the Cinema' led me to this gem of a film. Anton Walbrook delights as the master of ceremonies and there is great support from other celluloid heroes like Danielle Darrieux. This is what cinema is all about. Max Ophuls at the top of his game on the carousel of dreams.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super, 21 Sep 2012
Classy 70's pop from now forgotten band Starbuck. Bruce Blackman writes and sings nearly all the songs in a witty,casual style not too disimilar to Michael Franks. Their signature tune 'Moonlight Feels Right' is the only reason I bought the cd but there are lots of other gems here like 'Sunset Eyes' 'Gimme a Break' and 'Got to Know'. Blackman knows how to write a tune. Super!

3.0 out of 5 stars A lot of padding out, 6 July 2012
One or two interesting bits but nothing new, as the last review said. There's a lot of padding out and a pointless section on Gerald Scarfe? What was his contribution to Wish You Were Here? I would have preferred an interview from the model standing upside down in Mono Lake on the postcard or the nude model behind the reg flag on the inside sleeve!
