late to the party, but making up for lost time-I've lately discovered movies.
No-I cut my teeth on the old ones-when black and white held no mystery. I remember watching Rebecca at a tender age-and still it's one of my favorite films.
I am hunkering down for the dog days of summer & streaming movies from netflix... I'm watching as many movies as I can find made in England prior to World War II and during it- or about the times-but it must be made in the UK. I am immersed in the era at the moment-as my thoughts in writing this summer attest.
I would love suggestions-Do know I have seen every Merchant Ivory film-from first to last.
Here are a few I've watched recently in this genre or made about the era- Blanche Fury, Hungry Hill, Unfaithfully Yours, Blithe Spirit (one of my favorites for ages), Cottage to Let, English Without Tears, The Life & Death of Colonel Blimp, Coming Home, A Private Function-
Masterpiece Theatre offers countless of the ilk- So I have many of those in Queue- if I've not seen them already. I think I have seen all of the movies Vivien Leigh ever was in-Waterloo Bridge, St Martin's Lane,etc.
Who has seen Masterpiece Theatre's Portrait of a Marriage-Vita Sackville West's tumultuous affair with novelist Violet Keppel?
