When Michael Palin as Pontius Pilate addressed the soldiers daring them to laugh, he was truly daring them. The soldier extras were ordered to stand there and not laugh, but not told what Palin was going to do. Palin, in fact, can barely stifle his own laughter when saying "Biggus Dickus" in front of the soldier asked if he finds the name "risible."
HIGHWAY TO THE DANGER ZONE!!
Top Gun tonight at Moonlight flicks in Chester with @sharonboyle69 @jenny_grace86 and not forgetting Sharon’s wonderful Mum we had the best time 😊😊
Biggest lesson I learnt tonight was I need to be better prepared with snacks! I found it really hard walking round Lidl to find snacks that are low or no syns - I ended up with a packet of chicken, blueberries and some popcorn 6 syns 🙈😫 @sharonboyle69 smashed it with some syn free sausage, tomato and gherkin cocktail sticks which were bloody gorgeous, carrots syn free dip and popcorn! Note to self be better prepared next time!! .
Finishing Day one on 11.5 syns #slimmingworld#slimmingworldsnacks#swnewbie#snacks#nightout#moonlightflicks#topgun#maverick#goose#classicfilm
In a time when #movies have become increasingly expensive to make and increasingly disappointing to watch, it is apt to conclude that #cinema has lost some of its #HollywoodMagic . Consequently, #Americans seeking to enjoy a film wrought with #WholesomeAmericanValues often find themselves turning to #OldMovies . An example of a film that stands the test of time is the 1946 film, #TheBestYearsOfOurLives . Following three U.S. servicemen adjusting back into civilian life after returning home from #WWII , this #AwardWinning film brings its viewers to laughter, tears and thought. Its writing is honest, natural and worthy of praise as it captivates its audience and gets its message across without having to sacrifice subtlety or resort to shock value, as so many modern films seem to do. The #director , William Wyler, was a WWII #veteran who came home determined to create a film that would #honor the many servicemen he had encountered and to capture the mood of America as it transitioned from war to peace. An interesting side note, Wyler had suffered from partial #deafness as a result of flying a #B -25 during the war which led him to require a large set of headphones connected to an amplifier in order to hear the actors while #filming . Another veteran, Harold Russell, played a main character who had lost both of his hands in the #war . The actor had in fact suffered the #disability in real life but it was due to a training incident in #NorthCarolina . He won two #AcademyAwards for his performance. The remainder of the #cast was an impressive lineup of the biggest stars of the day. As #MovieCritic Abel Green said, “‘The Best Years of Our Lives’ is one of the best pictures of our lives.” All Americans who sense the lack of #AmericanValues in modern movies would be well served to see this #ClassicFilm . - Mrs. Publius
Stand By Me (1986)
🎥 “After director Rob Reiner screened the movie for Stephen King, he noticed that King was visibly shaking and wasn't speaking. He left the room and upon his return, told Reiner that the movie was the best adaptation of his work he had ever seen.” (IMDb) #riverphoenix#wilwheaton#stephenking#standbyme
Red-headed Lucille Ball, in addition to being a versatile movie actress, is also an accomplished artist and adept sign writer. Samples of her creative ability decorated her dressing room door on the set of Paramount's "Sorrowful Jones,"
The signs were neatly lettered with eye-brow pencil, and read:
"Wife of Desi Arnaz,"
"Stooge for Bob Hope,"
"Audience for Producer Bob Welch,"
"Despair of Director Sidney Lanfield," and
"New Fan of Bing Crosby."
Seems that she has a sense of humor, too!- newspaper article Aug 1949

Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier brought history to life in the story of the scandalous true-life romance between legendary beauty Emma, Lady Hamilton, and British Royal Navy Officer Lord Horatio Nelson. Fascinating essay about the movie by film critic Molly Haskell.
