    O'LUCKY MAN is one of many that stand out for me I love the late 60s early 70s surrealism with a great cast and soundtrack

    Yes, I forgot about poor "Trudi", they made a meal out of her and, yes, painting a boat did elicit a swearing!

    Ah, wasn't there the retort "How many 'gs" are there in bugger off?"?

    Except for the murder of a poor innocent rabbit.

    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!

    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 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.

    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)

    White Corridors (1951)... the beginning of all good british hospital movies.
    I reed this movie isn`t suitable for childrens and I don`t know why...but okay, the movie is from the early 50s.
