I actually picked up my DVD of Whistle down the Wind at the local charity shop. They have a box with all the DVDs that have been given out with newspapers - I think I only paid 20p or 50p or something close to that. I also got a copy of Taste of Honey at the same time. Definitely worth looking at charity shops if you have any close by.

Just remembered another one of my favourites - Straight Story (David Lynch).

I used to tape a few obscurities - Edgar Wallace 'Man Of Mystery' short films etc, that were on just before closedown. Ahh, closedown & watching the white dot disappear when you turned off the TV - about 11.30pm!

So many of these choices I should also have picked! Ring Of Bright Water - wouldn't you love to hear Richard sing the theme song?

The Party - don't think I've ever been so helpless with laughter as when I first saw that :*:

Kes
Life Of Brian
Seven
The Time Machine
The Cruel Sea
This Happy Breed
Carry On Behind - and most of the other Carry Ons...

2. City of Lost Children
3. The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
4. Silence of the Lambs
5. Klute

1. Empire Strikes Back
2. Persuasion
3. Aliens
4. La Femme Nikita
5. When Harry Met Sally
