    Let us not forget Hollywood's part in all this as they can play fast and loose with historical fact if it suits their purpose. I can remember, some years ago, and I do mean some years ago, a film called King Richard and the Crusaders, although I'm ...

    Dear Dolly, I am reading 'Writers in Hollywood 1915 -1951 by Ian Hamilton. You might find it interesting. But I think much of the content is well known. I flicked though the free view channels a few days ago and alighted on 'The New Avengers' I ...

    Dolly wrote a new blog: "Flash Gordon Conquers The Universe. 1934".
    I love little coincidences that crop up. A few weeks ago, after watching one or two games of the world cup, I posted a blog about national anthems. This led on to discussion about our own, and the different places in was played in or on. The two ...

You know, I'm starting to get really peeved about it, so much so I've a good mind to have a brew, a chocolate bicky and a brief flirtation with Sally Solitaire, and it will serve the alphabet right!

    Hi Mat, its Dolly, and I'm still waiting for you to rescue me from the fog when you were a Beach God, and that was at the end of May! My beard is now even bushier than it was before and is now just below my collar bone. I've had to replace the ...

    Newbury is a town where over the years the council has been quite comfortable in bulldozing C14th buildings for now-unused car parks and bus stations. An early C20th cinema never stood a chance and no trace of the building remains. I haven't lived ...

    The Playhouse, Felixstowe. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Pathe News, ice cream in the interval (with those little wooden spoons) and the National Anthem to finish off. Aah. Lovely.

    4 while I cook, 5 for cricket. 4 also for the morning news and the smug, insufferable, self-made bigot, John Humphreys; I like to start the day in a really bad mood. We didn't run to a Wurlitzer in Newbury, although we did have two proper cinemas ...

    Hi Dolly, I'm afraid so, yes. I have a manageable Radio 4 habit, and I dabble in 5, but yet to plunge the full Radio 3 wanker.
