Gentle Readers and Dear Friends I do thank you for all the action on my little sewing machine - I had no idea - I guess I probably should have as I was ravenous for one for so long - I will keep an eye out for another as I go from sale to sale.
I would like welcome a new Blogger - Charity - she just started Blogging. You might want to click on over and give her a big welcome. her Blog is "Lover of Cross Stitch."
The two flicks are ones I got to see this week - the first is a super film called "The Passionate Friends" (the original title) or in the US called "One Woman's Story" - 1949 - starring Ann Todd, Claude Rains and Trevor Howard.
Wonderfully directed by David Lean, who happened to by married to Ann Todd at the time, which has to be the reason for all her close ups. This beautifully photographed film is much like his earlier work "Brief Encounter" 1945 another wonderful film. I really enjoy Lean's work - my favorite film of his has to be "Summertime" 1955. This story is told in triple flashback with some wonderful results. There are some great scenes shot on location in France. At about 90 minutes you will not be disappointed.
The second film is much different - a Bio pic called "Man of a Thousand Faces" -1957 - starring James Cagney and Dorothy Malone.
An interesting film about Lon Chaney and his life from the stage to film - although a very loose biography that some might not like, Cagney's performance is top notch and worth seeing. It is amazing how he works at portraying Chaney. It is a little over 2 hours and very entertaining.
I think that about wraps up the week sports fans. Have a great couple of days off - stop back by next week - same Bat Time same Bat Channel!!!
