    Hello Everybody! This is my first post here...



    I have a real passion for films and take great joy in discovering films from all around the globe.



    This site looks like a brilliant source for information about British Films and the members seem to be really friendly and helpful.



    My second post here will be about a British Highway Safety Film. I can only remember that it was about a bloke explaining the rules of driving on the motorways but then the film ends with a real ghostly twist... At the scene of an accident we discover the dead man in the car is in fact our safety host! I have no idea what the name of the film is. Can you?

    Hi everyone,

    I`m Steve i joined because i have recently realised that i`m not the least bit interested in any of the new films doing the rounds at the moment I have sat through a few but then realised that i found them to be quite patronising or too similar or difficult to believe, or just plain boring. The last two Bond films have left me cold, too many computer graphics, too many big bangs and simply too far from the truth to keep me interested.

    Could it be the influence of the American film industry? or Money as in sponsorship and product placement i wonder?

    The American influence was not necassarily meant to be a critisism just a possible observation and therefore an answer to my quandry, maybe the American industry has reached it`s peak and is now in decline.....

    Maybe i`m getting carried away!



    It could be my age........

    So again i say Hi to all of you :)

    Just thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a big fan of british tv of the sixties and seventies. I mostly like the traditional british comedies in the format which we dont see anymore. Also I'm a big fan of dramas such as Play for Todays.

    Ive had a browse around this site and its brilliant.



    Cheers

    I was a child in the fifties, and a teenager in 1963. I have vague/distant memories of films on the TV during the mid to late fifties - Sunday afternoon fims especially - and those seen at the cinema in the early to mid sixties. Memories of later films are clearer but there are those films I regret not watching at the time, or that I missed because I took a girlfriend with me. I'm hoping to trace some of these great films where the 'stars' actually had to be able to act.

    Rock on grumpies.

    A look through the British Film Institutes DVD collections would be a good start for you Kgcag...Those films you have missed or must see again rest with them.

    Hi everyone! Not sure I've got the hang of this forum stuff yet so I may be replying to a message rather than creating my own - sorry!? What an amazing website though!



    My name's Steve and my grandfather was the special effects maestro Tom Howard who started to become an influential figure in film after his work on The Thief of Bagdad in 1940, going on to develop special effects for hundreds of films working with Alexander Korda, David Lean, Mervyn LeRoy, Robert Wise, George Pal, Brian Hutton, Stanley Kubrick, the list goes on but I don't want to bore you! The last films he worked on where credited included 2001, Where Eagles Dare, Young Winston, The Man Who Haunted Himself, Digby the Biggest Dog in the World, The Little Prince and The Legend of Hell House (having previously worked on the flexing doors and effects in the earlier film The Haunting!). He won two oscars in his career, one for david Lean's 'Blithe Spirit' and the second for one of my favourite fun films 'Tom Thumb'.



    Sadly when the UK division of MGM closed in the late 60's my grandfather declined the offer to move to Hollywood and continue at MGM in the States, but then again it's because of his love for England, his family and British films that he decided not to go.



    I notice that Stephen Pickard (a senior member on this website) worked for Tom Howard on where Eagles Dare, it would be great to hear from him if he reads this message :)



    So, hmmm what's my favourite Brit film?? I may be biased a little but I would have to say either The Four Feathers or The thief of Bagdad!



    I look forward to reading lots of interesting posts and exploring the website.



    Steve



    name='faginsgirl']Please people, now that you`ve introduced yourselves, please post! Lots of people say hi then disappear

    Hi Faginsgirl...



    I promise to keep posting but I'm still trying to get used to this forum, I know that sounds pathetic and I'm only 34 so I should find it easy but I keep getting lost! I don't seem to be able to private message anyone!?



    I have an interesting topic for you all.... Has Four Weddings and a Funeral ever been discussed in this forum? Ok plenty of awards at the time but hardly ever spoke of now! One of the most endearing and funny films of recent decades surely. David Haig never fails to make me laugh and his character Bernard was hilarious. I would love to stay at that guest house The Boatman, I wonder where it is?



    Thank you Steve and faginsgirl!



    :)
