We always get some much loved films on over the Christmas holiday period Zulu, Polar Express, Cars or whatever does it for you. For me it was Ryan's daughter that's just finished that I haven't seen for a good ten years or more.
For an example of pure character acting John Mill's part is it, there's probably only Tom hanks portrayal of Forest Gump that has ever matched it since.
Looks like a good one on Thursday/Friday on BBC2, It's called "The Sinking Of The Laconia". It's in two parts so I am recording it so that I can watch it all in one go. I think it has got a group of German actors in it too, so the accents should be o.k.
We watched "The Great Train Robbery" on the Universal channel yesterday afternoon. Such a shame the unattended broadcast system managed to replace the last 15 mins with 15 mins of constantly repeated adverts!
