    great I allways found also: "Mutiny on the Bounty":


    I liked both versions, as well! I even liked "The Bounty"(1984).

    Sharon, found the scene.  Maybe it can be interpreted other ways???

     


    That's such a funny coincidence! I'm waiting for my friend to get off work, 'cause he's bringing over "The Bridge on the River Kwai" to watch! I babbled about it at work today So, I'm going to look at it with a different perspective, and see what I end up thinking about it


    ha.  good timing.  let us know what you think!  enjoy!


    After viewing it again, I agree that Alec thought exactly what you said he thought. I also believe he was delusional throughout the entire film. I forgot how well made the film was! David Lean was no doubt, one of the greatest diectors ever. And William Holden plays cynicism as good as anyone.Smile

    Both are excellent films, Roma60! Are you saying you liked them, or didn't like them?

    Has anyone seen "Molly" about a young lady who has autism her whole life, had a experimental surgery proformed, became a genius, and her immune system attacked and she went back to being autisic again.  Based on a true story.

    Never heard of it. Hard to believe someone could become a genius, even momentarily, through surgery?Laughing

     Yeah they (the surgeons) drilled a hole onto her head and did something to fix.  Her brother was against the idea but was talked into it, it had a happy/sad ending.

    Ah yes! The old, "We'll just drill a hole in her head to cure her." I think they did that to JFK's sister? Really.

    Flowers for Algernon?

    Went to see the restoration of Lawrence of Arabia the way it was meant to in a movie house and the pacing and camera work was intoxicating. Not very realistic but a tour de force nevertheless. Lean was among the giants as directors go....

    Trysts how do you feel about Ted Turner coloring some of the old movies he owns?

    Is that why his marriage to Jane Fonda folded?

    No, I don't like anybody messing with the great cinematographer's works. Do you like it?
