I’m sure I’ve posted about this film before but I make no apologies for re-blogging The Guardian’s article as I love the tale to pieces!

We have a great TV channel on virgimedia called talkingpictures and great black and whites with Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon and many more …. wonderful ..Hope your well Ian 😊👍
What can I say? A Powell-Pressburger classic, to (almost) rival ‘Black Narcissus’. Surreal, relevant, poignant, and wonderful performances.
Best wishes, Pete,, x.
I’ve got Talking Pictures on Freeview but keep forgetting to check the listings!
Much more intriguing than Black Narcissus in my opinion!
Sarah, how did I miss this movie? Obviously it is wonderful. Thank you!
Its well worth it always using V6 box to add the films … Do you remember Family at War … its just finished on Sunday but brilliantly well done
I do and I loved it!
You must get hold of it at once! Along with The Way Ahead, it’s one of Niven’s best performances.
