Cowart's Common Room

To the cinema this afternoon to see Casablanca made 75 years ago and which still competes with films made today. It doesn't seem to date at all and seems as relevant today as when it was made. The cinema was full, so plenty of people want to see it still.

It's an emotional film and I have terrible trouble with my eyes which weep embarrassingly at any moment of romance or nobility. In the darkness of the cinema that isn't a problem but it is when you have to come out. I shall have to remember to carry a pair of dark glasses.

But time has moved on since the 1940s and our lifestyles (even disregarding the war) are so different now. We are freer, more informal, slacker, with higher expectations but with lower standards. Or so I think but perhaps I am wrong.

Anyway it was the first time I had ever seen the film on the big screen and I enjoyed it hugely.Very HappyVery Happy

Re:
Lampworkbeader's Avatar You lucky thing, it's one of my favourite films, almost on a par with Brief Encounter.

Camilla's Avatar It's a wonderful film, I am the same Fennie, I can cry at a drop of the hat and even when happy and emotional . For instance ... Recently when my daughter took me over to see her new house I was on the upstairs landing as she was showing me the rooms and I burst out crying ... What ever is the matter mom she said, ' I am just so happy for you I said you have waited nearly 5 months to move in and now you have got it and it is beautiful.Very Happy

Yes Fennie always carry a pair of dark glasses with you, I wouldn't be without mine where ever I am or whatever the weather .Very Happy

Re:
Fairy Nuff's Avatar I was blubbing this afternoon at a David Niven film about the invention of the Spitfire. Crying or Very sad
My old neighbour worked with Mitchell on it ad an engineer and later on the bouncing bomb with Barnes Wallace, he was a fascinating man to have a cuppa with.
Glad you enjoyed the film Fennie. Smile
