Instead of Shaun of the Dead, Love Actually and Bridget Jones Diary.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Them! - The 50s mutant ant film.

Haven't seen that since I was a kid.

They let you into the cinema?

Doctor X, the 1932 Lionel Atwill film. The only one of the films referenced in Science Fiction, Double Feature that I haven't tracked down.

All those old British war/post-war black and white films:

It Always Rains on Sunday, October Man, Pool of London, The Man in the White Suit, Brief Encounter, Mandy, Brighton Rock, Great Expectations, Pink String and Sealing Wax, So Long at the Fair, The Square Ring, Kind Hearts and Coronets, The Lavender Hill Mob, Gaslight, Dead of Night, Saraband for Dead Lovers, The Bad Lord Byron.

It is a rainy afternoon during the school holidays or a Sunday afternoon some time in about 1978. The trees sway, the rain steadily falls and the light darkens. This is just what the doctor ordered.

It's funny isn't it. Black and white WW2 films used to be a mainstay of daytime programming.

Not so much anymore. I can't really say I'm that sad about it though.

The BBC should show Ring of Fire again:

Come and See

Nice.

A Cheech & Chong retrospective would be a break from the norm.

Animal Farm.

Mandy was on a month or so ago. There's a Freeview channel that shows a lot of b&w 1950s UK stuff.

I'd be interested to see a couple of old films with famous theme music and perhaps little else:

A Summer Place (actually I saw that in the early 1960s)and Unchained.

Theme.

From A Summer Place.

From A Summer Plaaace.

The theme from A Summer Place.

Badlands

RosyLovelady - 02 Dec 2015 11:07:19 (#20 of 193)

I've seen Badlands on tv at least twice, but certainly not recently.
