Last comment on How Green Was My Valley.

The film also has an environmental message, evident from the title and the opening sequence. The film starts with Gwilym, the father, taking Huw for a walk in the valley. The older Huw acts as narrator ans says:

"In those days the black slag, the waste of the coal pits, had only begun to cover the side of our hill, not yet enough to mar the countryside, nor blacken the beauty of our village."

Last night's #FridayFilm was:
How Green Was My Valley (1941)

The story of the Morgan family who live in a South Wales mining village around 1880. Their lives, loves, financial hardships & religious struggles are told through the eyes of the youngest son, Huw.

A very entertaining and sometimes poignant story showing the highs & lows of a close-knit family & community. Fantastic performances from the leads, great cinematography, superb direction.

Go see it.

Setting up tonight's #FridayFilm

*Some* considered this a greater film even than Citizen Kane (1941).

Tell you tomorrow.

[Assuming we don't have any power outages this week.]

This week's second #FridayFilm was:
Leave Her to Heaven (1945)

Published author Richard meets Ellen while both are on vacation in New Mexico. Within a few days Ellen proposes to Richard, and 2 days later they marry. Very soon their marriage has some extreme twists & turns.

This is a classic #FilmNoir even though it is shot in glorious Technicolor. Gene Tierney is one of the meanest femme fatales to ever grace the screen.

This film is not to be missed.

Last night's #FridayFilm was:
It Happened Tomorrow (1944)

A romantic comedy & fantasy film, mostly set in the late 19th century. A city newspaper reporter's wish to get tomorrow's headlines today comes true. However, things don't quite work out the way he plans.

Dick Powell & Linda Darnell are both excellent in the lead parts as the reporter and mystic, respectively.

A simple premise, delivered really well & at a frantic pace.

Thoroughly recommended.

Just saw #StanAndOllie and thought it was a very well made film with some great scenes and dialogue. The acting was also really good and if you’re a fan of #LaurelAndHardy, #HistoryOfCinema or #Comedy then I would thoroughly recommend this one to you.


The snapshot below is from the second #FridayFilm viewed last night.

The foreground includes the two leading stars of the film, sitting in a railway carriage.

Boy, that's travelling in style.

Movie projector seems completely undamaged from the unexpected power loss.

We watched the remainder of the previous night's interrupted film and then watched a second one.

The second movie had one of the most shocking "murders" I have ever seen in #FilmNoir .

More details on both #films coming soon.

The quotes have come from one of the best #films ever made.

Gregory's Girl (1981)

A coming of age romantic comedy, which twists sterotypes until they break. Gregory's life is turned upside down when his place in the football team is taken by Dorothy, who also becomes the object of his affections.

A masterpiece by writer/director Bill Forsyth and starring newcomers: John Gordon Sinclair, Dee Hepburn & Clare Grogan.

If you haven't seen GG go get it now.

What I loved, ABSOLUTELY LOVED about #80s #action #films is that the characters were either relatable, credible, or just too well done to dismiss.
Riggs is the crazy cop and Murtaugh is the moderate that tries to pull the reins.
The guy in Predator is the buffed hero, and young Sarah Connor is the weak survivor in the face of an unbeatable enemy.
Mad Max is the brutal gunman in search of revenge, but has a heart when it counts - 1/4

It's not really good enough to be on, but this is a public domain Christmas themed film so perhaps you might want to check it out:

"Santa Claus (versus the devil)" (1960)

"A bizarre flick from Mexico translated by K. Gordon Murray for children's matinees, in which Santa Claus is the envy of the CIA and avoids child labor laws by keeping his slaves in an orbital castle over the North Pole."

YouTube are providing 100 free to view movies, including Terminator and the Rocky films. The films have advertisement breaks.

I have no idea what the service is like, as it isn't available to the UK.
