      I can't really specify a favourite, i certainly enjoy watching any British (or foreign) film made in the London area studios whatever the quality, mainly for spotting previously uncredited actors or supporting artistes, stuntmen, musicians etc.

      The films i have watched and re-watched many times are :-

      British film (made exclusively in the UK)
      A Night to Remember (1958)

      British film (made on location)
      Mr. Arkadin (1955)

      British documentary film
      Let it Be (1970)

        The Ballad of Shirley Collins
        When we started this journey several years ago, there was no expectation at all that Shirley would ever sing again. What initially attracted us to making the movie was Shirley’s deep commitment to English folk tradition, and her little-known involvement in arguably the most important field-recording trip of all time; back in 1959 with her then-lover, the iconic ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax. The film was going to be about the past, and about the 30 years she had spent living without the thing she loved most. It’s been an absolute privilege to be with Shirley on this long journey back to her
        singing again, and along the way, the film has evolved into something we never expected.

        Documentarie films are most classics, I do love them.

            In terms of sheer enjoyment whenever I watch it, I don't think anything can beat The Fast Lady. Really looking forward to the imminent Bluray release.

              Yes this a lovely film. Especially if you are a fan (As I am) of vintage and period cars.
              Top notch performances and Julie Christie never looked lovelier.

                The Wicker Man, always will be. Such an odd film. Who shall we cast as a working class Scottish *minx? who else but Brit Ekland! Of course she had to be dubbed but despite this and all the production trouble the film had it remains a true original. So many songs! Christopher Lee and Edward Woodward are great, the ending is superb and the script is so memorable, " Broad beans in their natural state aren't usually turquoise" complains Woodward's policeman "Some things in their natural state have the most vivid colours" purrs Ekland in reply (well Annie Ross does the purring).

                *Lindsey Kemp as her father!
