Did anyone else catch the Leslie Howard documentary? If it comes on again, don't miss it. I had no idea he was such a ladies' man, or that he was so popular before GWTW. And I didn't know that he died fairly young, when his plane was shot down by Germans in WWII. The doc was a nice balance of family and film, personal and professional film, photos, interviews.
Enjoyed The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean with Paul Newman and a bunch of well-known characters in small parts. Stacy Keach stood out as Bad Bob, as did Tony Perkins as a traveling preacher. After reading the Wiki on Roy Bean, it looks like there's enough material for a mini-series.
Rewatched David Lean's Great Expectations, an all-time favorite. My only complaint is that the stunningly beautiful Jean Simmons couldn't have played the adult Estella. Valerie Hobson is pretty enough, but she's not the beauty that Estella was supposed to be.
The photography is gorgeous and the story moved along at a nice clip.
One other complaint (and maybe I should read the book) is that the film has attorney Jagger spilling the beans on Estella's parentage, causing Estella's fiance to leave her. Why would Jagger do that?
