  1. Maureen O'Hara sometimes reminds me of Gillian Anderson in that she can flip-flop between Irish (or English in Gillian's case) and American accents at the drop of a hat depending on who she's talking to. But maybe a US production of a story set in Wales was too much for her. Too bad Meryl Streep wasn't around at the time [EDIT] It's just occurred to me that possibly the worst Hollywood movie interpretation (from the 1940's anyway) of a British story is the downright dreadful "Mrs. Miniver".
  2. A few more Black Narcissus (1947) The Woman in the Window (1944) This Happy Breed (1944) The Winslow Boy (1948) The Mortal Storm (1940) D.O.A. (1949) How Green was my Valley (1941) Meet John Doe (1941) The Devil and Miss Jones (1941) Mildred Pierce (1945)
  3. Trying to send Ferrari some positive waves for this weekend's Grand Prix. Doubt it'll do much good though! RLT19 "Ferrari"
  4. The Ford Mondeo was a good all rounder too. The trouble is that, like the Seamaster, they seemed to be everywhere. They're boringly ubiquitous. Show a bit of flair, imagination and individuality and get the Breitling.
  5. Sorry to lower the tone but, in light of the above: "Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it in for me"
  6. As frustrating as it is not being able to find the piece of music you're looking for, all that searching means you'll inevitably stumble upon lots of other cool stuff on the way; like this:
  7. They've revived a technique that was abandoned years ago because, whilst interesting, it's relatively complicated, expensive and not very effective.
  8. Talking of Gershwin(esque) music, I've been trying, without success, to track down a full-length version of this for ages: https://www.h-spot.net/tmp/rlt/tcmindsthebaby.mp3 I'm guessing it doesn't exist and the above snippet is all there is. It's probably by Hoyt Curtin who wrote many of the themes and incidental music for Hanna- Barbera cartoons, perhaps most famously in the 50's and 60's, but right up to the early 80's. The above snippet is from a 1962 episode of Top Cat called, "TC Minds the Baby". Some more of Hoyt Curtin's work:
  9. Green's been a fashionable colour for watches since the 1950's. I can't see any reason why that would change now.
  10. 6pm today on Talking Pictures TV:
  11. Did you look at Laco's "Erbstück" models? These are artificially aged to make them look like vintage pieces but, as a very rough guide, might cost you only around half that of an original WW2-era watch.
