  • The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965) 14:15-17:20 Thu 16th Dec 2021 230m BBC2

    Technically it's a Christmas film. Staring everyone.

    Telly Savalas shaved his head for this and kept the look for the rest of his life.

    Producer and director George Stevens did many takes of John Wayne's single line, "Truly, this man was the Son of God." A rumor has long persisted that at one stage, Stevens pled with Wayne to show more emotion, an overwhelming sense of awe. During the next take, Wayne changed the line to, "Aw, truly this man was the Son of God."

  • The Ladykillers (1955) 14:30-16:20 Thu 16th Dec 2021 115m Film4

    A charming little Ealing black comedy.

  • I recently watched the movie "Marley and I" and it really impressed me. I was so imbued with this film. The actors played their roles so vitally that it seemed to me as if everything was happening for real, as if everything was happening to me. The film shows love, true love, man's love for man, man's love for an animal - a strong, friendly seed. Of course, the film is predictable and the ending seemed clear to me at first, but how hard it is to lose a faithful friend, emotions flooded over me in full swing and at the end of the film I cried for a long time.

  • The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Paramount 21:00 220 min Sat 18 December

    Nearly three hours long and builds up to a climax of three guys standing around doing nothing.

  • American Mary - Horror Channel (on now) Horror Channel+1 11.45pm

    2021 according to description, but it's more like 2012..

    A good bloody/revenge horror with Katherine Isabelle, and other unheard of actors. Mary gets into body modification after an incident in medical school. I liked it anyway.. More of a gore flick than a horror one.

    I wish I had known when I was in 'The Good Old Days' before I actually left them.
