      I second that, excellent character portrayal by Robert shaw.....likewise Brody and Hooper.
      Did you know Robert shaw was born in Bolton Lancashire...just up the road from my house, there is a pub called "The Robert shaw"..........Sweet!
      Ejector seat?...your jokin!

            Superb! No, I didn't know that. I suppose the locals enjoy singing a few verses of show me the way to go home before closing time

            Not forgetting of course Robert Shaw's terrific performance as Henry the Eighth in A Man For All Seasons. Once again a very much a larger than life performance if that makes sense?​​​​​​

            • Saw Our Ladies last week at the Odeon in Liverpool (if their theatre is good enough, then their cinemas should be as well). It's mostly about a load of teenage girls played by relative unknowns in a Scottish convent school on a day trip to Edinburgh with lots of adult themes as you may have guessed - set in 1996 when ironically, the characters portrayed would have been the same age as myself back then.

              Makes a change to have a UK based film instead of the American domination that are always in cinemas. A 15 certificate, so there's a bit of language in he dialogue.

              I've everything I need to keep me satisfied
              There's nothing you can do to make me change my mind
              I'm having so much fun
              My lucky number's one
              Ah! Oh! Ah! Oh!

                              I do know the one, a Hammer production if I remember rightly.
                              Didn't Barbara Shelley star in that film?
                              I thought she was terrific in Dracula Prince of Darkness.
                              One of my favourite Hammer films....apart from The Plague of The Zombies!

                                No...as stated this is a remake, better than the original IMO, The leading lady is Linda kozlowski (think i spelled that right) out of Crocodile dundee.
