    My dad told me about that one watch it and loved it and years later I get mrs 73 to watch it. It’s her favourite film now. A great film never fails to be watchable.

    My dad was a bit of a film buff having grown up in the golden age of films and British studios. When a film was on TV growing up we’d sit together and watched so many classics. A slight change on OP one I’d happy watch again not seen it in a long time. Is the beast with 5 fingers maybe a bit tame given today’s horror films but the cinematography still holds its own.
    One I did catch up with the other week not seen for years was reach for the sky.

    Love that film

    Legend has it that the film wasn't filmed on a closed set at all - but filmed on the moon :whistle:

    I was lucky / unlucky enough (you decide) to be at secondary school in the mid-80s when teachers were intent on striking as much as possible and for a couple of terms we were put on an emergency timetable with the school closing at 1pm so the teachers could go to the pub / stick it to Thatch.

    This coincided with one of the TV stations (BBC2?) showing old B&W British films at about 2pm, so I got to watch loads. Some great comedies (Kind Hearts and Coronets, Passport to Pimilico, The Man In The White Suit, School for Scoundrels, etc), some stirring war movies (The Cruel Sea, Battle on the River Plate, Went the Day Well?), the early Carry On films and many others of variable quality, but with belters like Hell Drivers to find.
    I didn't always appreciate them fully at the time but they did give me a love for old cinema that I try and indulge when I get the chance now.
