  • Excellent and clean:

    No time for Seargents -- Andy Griffith and a very young don knots (hilarious)

    The Quiet Man -- John Wayne and Maureen o'hara 

    Tight little island (or Whiskey galore) --  OLD black and white, heavy accents

    Lillies of the Field -- Sidney poitier

    The reluctant saint -- Ricardo maltiban


    O.k. as noted:

    Facing the giants -- protestant, but good message overall

    The in laws -- Peter faulk (all o.k. except in the house of the "general".  Fast forward fast through that.)

    Pocketful of miracles -- betty Davis and Peter faulk (immodest dresses in a couple of scenes)

  • David Copperfield 1935 was really good.

  • So many good ideas for films on this thread. 

    I've not ever seen David Copperfield, but will try to do so. I've tried to read books by Charles Dickens, but the language is very difficult to read, for me. 

    I've just finished reading the book, North and South, after seeing a DVD of the mini-series. It's a good commentary on the industrial revolution in England, set amongst a town of cotton mills. The author of the book (Elizabeth Gaskell) was a contemporary of Dickens. 

    Fanny mentioned the film, "Tight little Island." I saw the old film after reading the book. The book is actually much better (called Whiskey Galore) than the film; it's a humorous story of a fictional Catholic island in the Hebrides. The author, Compton MacKenzie, was a Catholic convert. 

    I also like the Passion of the Christ, Lord of the Rings, Braveheart (except for the scenes of impurity), old black and white westerns, Padre Pio: Miracle Man, Song of Bernadette, The Reluctant Saint, The Quiet Man.

    I'll bet the book was tough.  At times during the movie I had to just go with the flow, because I could not make out the Englishy chatter.  ha ha

  • I liked the British series Onedin Line, which was taken from the books by Cyril Abraham. Set in 1860's Liverpool, about a stoic ship captain and his ambitions.


    Dickens is one of my favorite authors. The movies, while nice, pale in comparison to the written works.
