    I never noticed that either. I innocently thought he was just surprised at the way she was so bluntly stating her intentions



    A round of applause for spotting that

    It's an incurable condition. It can be painful, especially to the wallet and the bank balance, but it's not fatal. I've been enjoying this condition for many years.



    As obsessions go, it's fairly harmless

    Brilliant



    Another favourite of mine is from The Small Back Room:

    Susan: Where were you going Sammy?

    Sammy: I don't know.

    Susan: A woman?

    Sammy: Maybe.

    Susan: How about me?



    If you know the film it sums up their relationship beautifully

    It's another Powell & Pressburger film, but not one of their most famous ones.

    It stars David Farrar & Kathleen Byron (Mr Dean & Sister Ruth from Black Narcissus) but this time he's a back-room scientist and an expert in booby traps and bombs. But he has lost a foot and his pain killers don't work, and he has a drink problem.



    Although it was made in 1949 it's filmed in B&W and set during the war. It's very much "British noir" in style.


    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0001FYRF8/ from Criterion. The Criterion DVD has a superb commentary track

    Criterion DVDs are always a bit more expensive. But you get a lot for that extra expense. Not only the very best print of the film that is available at the time but also some very good commentary tracks, documentaries and other extras that you don't get on normal DVDs



    For instance, the Criterion DVD of The Small Back Room includes:

    * New, restored high-definition digital transfer

    * Audio commentary featuring film scholar Charles Barr

    * New video interview with cinematographer Christopher Challis

    * Excerpts from Michael Powell's audio dictations for his autobiography

    * PLUS: A new essay by film critic Nick James

    * Subtitles



    It's worth paying a bit more for such quality



    But this is an American DVD. Make sure that your DVD player can play region 1 NTSC format DVDs before you buy it

    Tous les portraits ne sont l� que parce que quelqu'un les a �crits.

    Ils n'apparaissent pas par magie

    (I wish I spoke French)

    Well Steve, I believe in Magic, but I know also that "reality" puts its limits down too ....

    Of course someone' s got to write it; but as Roger Livesey seems to have a short filmography, it should be "easy" to do .....
