Purveyor of Bollocks to the Crowned Heads of Europe
I don't know what this is because I cant listen to it now but I'm glad you posted it.
Every one of Powell and Pressburger's films are just wonderful. Have a look at one, and - if you are not a cynical film-critic - you will fall in love with them.
Enjoy yourself in Oxford. zzzzzzzzzzzzz
I vaguely remember a whirlpoolIs that the same film?
Yes, that's the one. I took my daughter on a holiday to Argyle when she was about 12, and we stayed off the Sound of Jura near where that whirlpool was filmed.If I had arrived 2 weeks earlier, I could have met the man who was filmed spinning around in the engineless boat - for real - in the Corry Vrecken for the film, but he had died.The Corry Vrecken can be heard for 20 miles inland when the conditions are right - or wrong - so fierce is the whirlpool.Thos films are even more magical than Harry Potter, and shot during wartime!
'The Orpheus Choir' of Glasgow who sing most of the music are still going strong, over 70 years after this movie was made. Blissfully wonderful to know.
Oh for a compartment NOT over the wheels. Such class.
We have our methods, Sir.
One of my all time favourites too. The crassness of some teachers - I worked with such folk for years, so I know what harm they can do. (and what good a good one can do too.)
Why is it that often the least qualified people to look after the young, vulnerable and innocent get the jobs?There were a couple of good teachers in my school, but they were either too weak or too strong.
I had not been aware of this film but I have just returned from a trip to Argyll. We were going to the Corryvreckan whirlpool but I was unable to manage the journey. Perhaps next year.I hated school, none of the teachers took the time to know me.
