Hmmm.....I took more hours of British Literature than American Lit. I think most of us do. British lit is required in high school here. I can't tell you how many hours I spent reading and analyzing Shakespeare.

Then I graduated to Spanish Lit. I am more likely to sing the praises of the poet Pablo Neruda than Billy Collins.

And now, because of my job, I read mostly children's lit. If anyone wants a good read that you can finish in a day, read the following:
Bud, Not Buddy
The Lemonade War

Those are the best children's novels I've read in a long, long time.

Hi Ellie ..

I aint talkin' bout Mark Twain, or Scott Fitzgerald.

Or even Hemingway, Steinbeck and Salinger..

I'm talkin about the art of the 1930's cinema..

Art deco... Busby Berkeley.. Joan Blondell..

Cos I watch Goldiggers of '33 last night and reminded myself of Etta Moten..

It aint everyone's cuppa cha. But watch the Forgotten Man sequence on U tube..

Etta's the broad sitting on the window ledge...

And can she sing!

Ahhh....I actually liked those movies. The only movies I was allowed to watch as a kid were older movies. However, I can't remember the names of any of them now because life happens and I'm way too geeky.

Billie Burke who played Glinda the Good Witch in the Wizard of Oz also was in the Ziegfeld Follies and was the wife of Mr. Ziegfeld. I'll have to admit being smitten with her when first saw the Wizard of Oz growing up Her and Vivian Leigh, and Marlene Dietrich and of course Jane Russell and Marilyn were pretty cute too.

I used to really enjoy the Ed McBain police novels. As I recall, at the time, they were largely dismissed as 'pulp' - but I think that view will have to be reconsidered. Using his real name, Evan Hunter, McBain was highly regarded - the McBain books are masterclasses in plotting, character development, and absolutely brilliant dialogue.

As for American movies - I was more into Cagney, Raft, and Bogart. Musicals don't really press my buttons. Although I can watch and appreciate them occasionally.

Don't know why I just said that.

Regards

Skoob.

I've a massive collection of Cagney. Amazing actor - even with his back turned to camera..

Love Me Or Leave Me is very special. Anyone who could draw a performance, like he did, out of Doris Day had to be a genius....

Up until last night when I watched Shaun of the Dead, the best fight scene ever was in the movie The Quiet Man. When my whole extended family would get together, we'd all stay up and watch it. It was the only movie my dad and uncles could quote along with my cousins and I.

You see that Shaun of The Dead sequence where he goes to the shop in the morning? That's me going to work, that is. Totally hungover and oblivious.

Except on a bike.

Hope you enjoyed the film.

I loved the film. In fact, I'm going to watch parts of it again now. And now I can't wait to see Hot Fuzz! Although, I might actually have to get that one from Amazon. No instant gratification for me this time!
