    Battle of Britain
    Empire of the Sun
    Mosquito Squadron

    I've not met many people who've even heard of this one, let alone like it. I also have to sound track as well.

    We are talking Terrence Malick here! One of my favourite directors - 'Badlands', 'Days of Heaven' and of course 'The Thin Red Line'. A seriously good director -master of the 'voice over'.

    I can't believe that there are 'many' people who have not heard of this movie. It's a good one.

    Not a favourite per se but could be of interest to those who lived through the sixties yet can't remember them.

    I saw "Catch 22" in a fillum theatre back in the 70s after reading the book for the first time. I didn't reckon it was anywhere near as entertaining as the book (which I've read another 1½ times since (I inadvertaintly left it on an aeroplane)) but I thought I'd give it another go now I've matured slightly.

    Got to love Hitchcock and Bernard Herman's (sp?) music. Kim Novak is easy on the eyes, you can't help but laugh every time Jimmy Stewart looks at her he gulps. Lol

    "10 Rillington Place" was very good. And very scarey in its day!
