    The Left Hand of God, 1955. directed by Edward Dmytryk and produced by Buddy Adler, from a screenplay by Alfred Hayes, based on the novel The Left Hand of God, by William Edmund Barrett. it stars Humphrey Bogart and Gene Tierney, with Lee J. Cobb, Agnes Moorehead and E. G. Marshall.





    Bogey is good in this otherwise wayward screenplay. This is from my Apple film collection.

    Great Expectations, 1946, directed by David Lean and stars John Mills, Valerie Hobson, Bernard Miles, Francis L. Sullivan, Anthony Wager, Jean Simmons, Finlay Currie, Martita Hunt and Alec Guinness.
    A classic Dickensian tale; probably the best film adaptation of any.






    Dickens based Joe Gargery's house on the forge in the village of Chalk, near Gravesend, Kent – a replica was erected on St Mary's Marshes on the Thames Estuary.  Pip and Herbert Pocket arrange to meet Magwitch and help him escape at Chatham Docks where slip 8 was used for the scene as well as exterior shots of the prison hulk ships. The River Medway and the adjacent St Mary's Marshes appear in scenes where Pip and his friend, Herbert Pocket, row their boat to a small inn whilst waiting for the paddle steamer to arrive. The ship used in the film was called Empress, dating from the latter half of the nineteenth century and owned by Cosens & Co Ltd of Weymouth. She was brought down to the River Medway for the shoot. "New masts were stepped-in with square rigging and dummy sails, the funnel was lengthened and the paddle-boxes enlarged until it looked exactly right."

    When I was about 10 my mum and dad (who were very much hippies/weirdos) used to have a craft stall on a Saturday in Norwich, and I’d get given 50p to take my little sister somewhere to keep us out of their hair. Just across the road was Cinema City, and they would always be showing old films, many in black and white, and therefore much cheaper than “proper” modern cinema. Great Expectations at Cinema City is one of my most vivid childhood memories! Great film. Saw many classics back then, Jason and the Argonauts being another I remember very well.

    First Blood, 1982. directed by Ted Kotcheff, and co-written by Sylvester Stallone, who also stars as Vietnam War veteran John Rambo. Co stars are Richard Crenna and Brian Dennehy..





    First Blood topped the U.S. box office for three weeks in a row, and its $6,642,005 opening weekend was the best October opening at the time. The film grossed $125 million worldwide, against a $15 million budget. It was notably the first major Hollywood blockbuster to be released in China, where it was released in 1985. It sold 76 million tickets in China, the highest for a foreign Hollywood film up until 2018.

    Top film that, first film I ever saw on the new-fangled VHS tape.

    being able to rent films from the off licence was ace. We forget now but back then that was one of the best things ever. Nothing on the telly? Just nip down the shop and rent a film.
