    Kiss Me, Guido.

    I also saw "To Wong Foo, thanks for everything! Julie Newmar" today for the first time & I felt so happy and uplifted by the end. What a sweet, amazing, funny movie. Why had I never see it before? I shall be buying the DVD.

    Flightplan with Jodie Foster was on TV last night. She's such a commanding onscreen presence; even that opening silhouette of her seen from the back has your attention riveted on her.

    The Punch And Judy Man

    It was on TV yesterday evening. The first time in many a year I've watched something with adverts, so it was a nostalgic experience as well as a captivating film.

    Note to self:
    must explore more of Tony Hancock's work.

    Tony Hancock was a very big name in the fifties and sixties. More known for radio and TV than movies though.

    I don't know if it's available but try to check out Hancock's Half Hour. I think you'll find that the so-called revolutionary Seinfeld bears more than a little resemblance to it.

    Thanks for the tips.

    It is rather an oddity, because I very much enjoy vintage British comedy - film, television and radio - and yet Hancock's shows have passed me by. Even reading books on the subject, his name comes up again and again as a legend, and Hancock's Half Hour is viewed as a comedy benchmark. He's worked, too, with many artists and writers whose work I enjoy (Kenneth Williams, Sid James, Hattie Jacques, Galton & Simpson).

    Exploring his work seems like a no-lose prospect, really. And truthfully I feel a little incomplete for not having done so yet.

    Tommy the Toreador, starring Tommy Steele.

    I knew Tommy Steele from Half a Sixpence and the Disney movie The Happiest Millionaire and it was interesting to see him in an earlier lower-budget musical. I also shouldn't have been surprised to find that his hit song The Little White Bull came from this film

    And, @Mel O’Kalikimaka , also in the cast was British comedy stalwart and sometime Tony Hancock sidekick Sid James doing an absolutely atrocious Spanish accent. :D
