Because all those labyrinthine visuals make you ignore the music, perhaps? No, impossible...

Turn The Key Softly (1953)

A superb drama telling the story of three women coping with their first day of release from Holloway Prison.

The film stars (l - r) Joan Collins, Yvonne Mitchell and Kathleen Harrison. Everything about this film is excellent. Great performances from the leads, atmospheric cinematography, tight dialogue, and a compelling story.

It is rare to get a film now where the three leads are women, almost unique in the 1950s.

Don't miss this film.

The numbers are still not that good, and were most likely looking at an extension of the lockdown.

The situation is getting better but is still dire. We will most likely see an extension of the current lockdown while our government ramps up the vaccination efforts.

BTW
The lower part of the glen was used for filming the early scenes for the 1995 epic movie Braveheart. The film crew constructed the William Wallace village (which was mostly a wooden fort) and a car park for the production vehicles. The car park still exists, and is called the "Braveheart Car Park" (inventive, huh).

Suave and brutal, Sean Connery was the ultimate Bond


https://www.telegraph.co.uk/films/0/suave-brutal-sean-connery-ultimate-bond/

The unique power of Sean Connery was always rooted in his Scottish working-class origins, which gave him a threatening, splintery edge that all the glamour in Hollywood could never quite sand off. Unlike the matchlessly smooth and urbane Cary Grant, when you watched Connery on screen you always had a skin-prickling sense of the man beneath the tuxedo – that a primal force was being contained and civilised here, like a penned-in panther waiting for feeding time, and the moment some poor sap would unclick the lock of his cage.

Connery’s rare mix of suavity and brutality made him not just the perfect candidate to play Ian Fleming’s James Bond, but also the yardstick against which all future Bonds would necessarily be measured – and found wanting. When Harry Saltzman and Albert R "Cubby" Broccoli were searching for their 007, they first envisaged approaching Cary Grant himself for the role – whose humble upbringing in Bristol was no more auspicious than Connery’s own, in Edinburgh in the Thirties and Forties. But after a thorough casting process, it was Connery they eventually plumped for – despite, or perhaps because of, the fact he turned up for his final meeting with the two producers unshaven, and in an unpressed suit. Just try to imagine Grant – or indeed anyone but Connery – lurking behind the shuttered bungalow door in Dr No, enjoying a quiet game of Solitaire while waiting for his would-be assassin to arrive.

Though it unfolds just an hour into the first of his six "official" Bond films, it must be the definitive Connery Bond scene: the effortless turning of the tables, the casual toying with his prey, and then the cool efficiency of the kill, seconds after the airy dismissal of his enemy’s final, life-or-death bluff. The legend-forging moment surely comes when Professor Dent trains his now-empty revolver on our hero, and he purrs in response: “That’s a Smith & Wesson, and you’ve had your six,” before dispatching him with a single shot. In the scene as it was originally filmed, Bond then emotionlessly pumps a further five bullets into the dead man’s back, just to rub it in – though censors would pare this back to one before its 1962 release.

So indelible would the Connery persona become that even when working with an obsessive auteur like Alfred Hitchcock – as he did in 1964’s Marnie, to arguably career-topping effect – you were still obviously watching Connery-as-Connery in every frame. In Marnie, his accent’s frequent lapses from Mid-Atlantic drawl to chewy Scots burr were just part of the character’s appeal – and again, menace rippled across that charming surface at all times. (Here is a psychological thriller whose "hero" is a proud and unrepentant rapist.) Note that Connery was no gifted character actor – Scotland has produced no shortage of those – but a bona fide movie star, with a screen persona that could comfortably slide out of a blockbuster spy franchise and into the oeuvres of directors as varied as Hitchcock, Brian de Palma (in The Untouchables, for which he won an Oscar), John Huston, Sidney Lumet, Michael Bay, John Boorman and Steven Spielberg. He allowed filmmakers to paint with a certain dark and intimidating yet luxuriously glossy tone that no other actor could bring to their palettes, and his non-negotiable accent was a central part of this. (Fleming himself was so taken with it that he would later retrofit 007 with Scottish roots in his own Bond novels.)

In Edinburgh, it has long been a point of civic pride, too. When I was growing up in the city in the Eighties, Connery’s beginnings there – including his famous six-year stint as a milkman some four decades earlier – was still the stuff of local myth. There was hardly a granny to be found who didn’t insist her dairy produce had been delivered by Big Tam back in the day – the man must have had the longest milk round in western Europe – unless there was some still more intimate, though regrettably unprovable, connection worth boasting about. The Collins, I’m delighted to say, are no different: my great uncle was a joiner at the house furnishers C&J Brown while the future 007 was employed there as a furniture polisher, and the two were friendly enough that he ended up doing some ad hoc carpentry at the Connery abode. (His tenement flat in Fountainbridge, that is; not the place he got later in the Bahamas.)

As I say, almost everyone in the Scottish capital over a certain age has a story like this, and the fact that so many of them sound even halfway plausible speaks to Connery’s peculiar strengths as a performer. He was the kind of guy you almost could imagine yourself knowing – or rather having known once a while back, before fate saw some dangerous yet irresistible quality within him, and picked him out for greatness.

- right before the show started I got a bucket of bile poured over me on this very medium. I wish for the person responsible they'd instead of such actions some day manage to rage against the bars of their cage as tremendously as Old Dolio does. It would be the big one.

- You will have to have read the book, for else you'll be lost!

Towards the end I found myself wondering what Dickens would say, were he sitting beside me. I think, he would be confused, so quick the pace, and oh, so many cuts, you never know where you are right now. The tides flowed slower in his days, and a story had all the time to breathe its creator gave it. But then, I also believe he'd like the film (like I did, I loved this film!), he'd like the air of confidence in it, of tolerance. And perhaps what he would like the most is that David Copperfield isn't white, that the whole movie doesn't give a penny on what colour a person's skin has. Yes, I'm certain, Dickens would like that.

- made me think there's a chance mankind might not be as vile as it seems, after all. Describing the plot as thin would be an exaggeration, though. Transparent would fit better, I'd say. But who cares?
