    Hello and its good to know that I am now part of a community of like-minded film devotees with a focus on British films. If I have to start anywhere then I propose to do so with what I consider to be Hollywood's/the Oscar-Academy's greatest bo-bo in failing to award the movie industry's very own totem to Peter O'Toole's for his performance as Lawrence. I believe that David Lean's masterpiece remains one of the most iconic representations of the art/science of movie-making, the visual cinematic impact on the senses unmatched in the industry's annals. Of course, Robert Bolt's screen play, Jarre's score, Freddie Young's cinematography and acting performances from all supporting actors made their individual and collective contribution, too. Lean was surely Britain's greatest film maker, although 'Hitch's' career and impact on cinema was as great in its own way as my personal nominee for Britain's greatest film maker.

    Well it did win 7 Oscars, including Best Director and Best Picture.

    But O'Toole was up against some other good performances that year including Burt Lancaster in Birdman of Alcatraz. But the Oscar for Best Actor was won by Gregory Peck for To Kill a Mockingbird.



    But the Oscars are rarely considered to be the best indication of what's really good. There's too much (industry) politics involved in the voting

    Hi,Pongo

    Lawrence Of Arabia is my favourite film. However,as Steve pointed out,I think the Academy could be forgiven for giving Gregory Peck the Best Actor Oscar for his tour-de-force performance in To Kill A Mockingbird.

    It was such a pity he was pitted against other fine performances as in his titular role he was pivotal throughout the entire film.

    Hi, I'm smorgs - I'm new.



    This is my first post, so be gentle with me...



    Firstly, a big shout and Happy Birthday to Wadsy - I hope you read this. I too remember Gerry Sundquist from Chorlton. I was thinking about him and googled, links led me to this site (aren't computers great?).



    I went to school with his sister, but can't remember her first name, was it Teresa?



    Sorry, I know it's not friends reunited, but, did you go to St Johns?

    Welcome.



    You'll find a lot of useful information here and if you've any questions - the chances are if it can't be answered here, it can't be answered anywhere.



    You will find the odd obsessive but on the whole they're pretty harmless.

    Hello, i have just signed up after doing some research and having some questions answered in the forums. Already a font of all knowledge before i had signed up. I was talking to my friend about the lack of Will Hay biog's and a post from a few days ago has informed me that there is one on the way.

    big fan of ealing and hammer and of course powell and pressburger to name but a few!
