    Picked up a couple of old goodies in the charity shop today. 'Gunfight at The O.K. Corral' and 'The Sons of Katie Elder' on DVD. Only £1 each in mint condition. Classic western DVDs seem thin on the ground usually.

    Last of the George Pollack Marple quartet I'm watching although technically it was the 3rd, Murder Most Foul (1964). Margaret Rutherford and the usuals are joined by Ron Moody, Megs Jenkins, James Bolam and Andrew Cruickshank (of Dr Findlay's casebook fame), and a cameo by Dennis Price.

    Another Marple that was originally a Poirot novel, and set in a theatre with a cast rehearsing a play. Aptly then there are various references to the work of William Shakespeare: the title hails from "Hamlet" Act I, Scene V (lines 27-28) where the Ghost speaks: "Murder most foul, as in the best it is;/But this most foul, strange, and unnatural." A key phrase in the film hails from "Romeo and Juliet" ("What's in a name? That which we call a rose/By any other name would smell as sweet" (Act II, Scene II)). And Cosgood alludes to "Macbeth"'s line "Sleep that knits up the ravelled sleeve of care" (Act II, Scene II, lines 34-35).



    All I can say is, as Blackadder would shout...."MACBETH"

    The Wind and the Lion - not seen this before set 1903 see's American troops + Germans involving themselves in Morocco, under the pretence of trying to rescue an American lady and her children from a local warlord Mulai Ahmed er Raisuli's. Enjoyable what I saw of it. Based on a historical event (very loosely) but it was a male and his son kidnapped not a lady and there were no Germans, only French involved and no hostility between them.

    More here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ion_Perdicaris and here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wind_and_the_Lion

    Also earlier today The Secret of My Success - Love this film, fab music score from the likes of Night Ranger and Yello. With a highly implausible but fun story, its great fun. More here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sec...ss_(1987_film)

    13 Rue Madelaine starring Jimmy Cagney. Excellent story of the sos ths and initially was to be based around the exploits on Col Donovan but he objected and it was redone and set around Peter J. Ortiz, another hero of ww2. Ortiz was an amazing character and served in the foreign legion before ending up back in the US and I think the Marines. Moved to sos and was infiltrated several times into France. Ortiz eventually became an actor( not a very good one and starred in a few John Ford films including Rio Grande with The Duke.
    Jimmy Cagney was again in top form here and if you get the chance o a watch then this is ,although a pro US propaganda film it is still a tribute to all those brave men and women who in many cases sacrificed their life to defeat the evil Bosch.
