16835Through the Shadowlands
- Jul 26, 2006Mentioned this to a few people recently who I thought would already
know about it and found they didn't, so sharing the news here that
the earlier version of the SHADOWLANDS movie is now available on dvd.
It's been renamed THROUGH THE SHADOWLANDS, presumably so folks won't
confuse it with the remake starting Anthony Hopkins and Deborah
Winger. Recommended. Josh Ackland is a far better Lewis than Hopkins,
far less passive, and the guy they have playing Warnie is amazingly
good. Claire Bloom isn't as good a Joy Gresham as Winger--too sweet
and ethereal rather than energetic and brassy--but otherwise it's the
better of the two films.
