      Of all my favourite movie music I think Walton’s music for Henry V is at the
      top of my list. I’ve just treated myself to the Henry V Suite played by the
      Royal Philharmonic, conductor André Previn. (Found on eBay)

        Still hated it - it was the fact that it purported to be true that REALLY got my goat. Don t care when things are blatantly hollywood - that s what hollywood

          Don't care when things are blatantly hollywood - that's what hollywood does - and often have to pull other people down off the ceiling with that advice (example - ooohh look a flip up bar nasal helmet in Kingdom of Heaven, they didn't come in until at least 15 years after the film, growl growl grumble) That stuff I can forgive, movie makers are not documentary makers, it's the pretence at truth I really can't stand. I knew it was going to be awful but when that came up I really did let rip ;->

          Kat, dear Kat

          Stop and take on a new perspective. As I've listened
          to The Romantic Hours and watched oh so many different
          representations of things through the ages (and like I
          said, being 25,000 gives you an edge), one thing seems
          to be true.

          We may be living in a year that is distant to the one
          we're watching on the screen or reading about, but the
          feelings the characters have are the same throughout
          time.

          The things they did on a daily basis are the same
          throughout time, just with different instruments,
          according to the period and the place.

          A PBS program showed the Aleut come home from some
          long period of fishing. The couple sent the two
          children out to play while he settled his things. The
          wife, by the time the camera returned to the inside of
          the igloo, was in bed and blushed at the anticipation
          of having her husband home.

          Haven't you noticed that Dumas tells us of duping
          Madame X with the same lines (well, similar) as were
          used on us in our teens and early 20s? And the cocky
          swagger of men seems to be timeless. A type of
          statement that "I'm a man and proud of it."

          Just change the date. The thought processes, the
          jargon, are essentially the same. Some social
          protocols evolve, become less stringent. But . . .

          Viva
