"POLDARK" SERIES ONE (1975): EPISODES ONE TO FOUR

A few years ago, I had tried a stab at the first episode of the 1975-1977 series, "POLDARK", which starred Robin Ellis. After viewing ten phút of theatrical diễn xuất and dated nhiếp ảnh in Episode One on bạn Tube, I gave up.

Last summer, I read all of the hullaballoo surrounding this new adaptation with Aidan Turner in the lead.

"FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD" (1998) Review

To my knowledge, there have been five adaptations of Thomas Hardy's 1874 novel, "Far From the Madding Crowd". One of them is even a modern ngày adaptation.

"LOST IN AUSTEN" (2008) Review

I must admit that I am usually not a người hâm mộ of novels hoặc any other forms of storytelling that are based upon hoặc continuations of published works of the origin author. This is certainly the case for the numerous works (sans two) based upon Jane Austen's six published novels.

The 2008 miniseries, "LOST IN AUSTEN" is not based upon any particular Austen novel that was not written bởi the Georgian Era writer. Instead, it is the brainchild of screenwriter Guy Andrews. The latter created this fantasy-comedy, which is an adaptation of Austen's novel, "Pride and Prejudice"...

I watched this adaptation of Jane Eyre yesterday and I have to admit that I did have great expectations for this one. However, I was rather disappointed than rewarded for watching it.

As a girl I was a huge Jane Eyre người hâm mộ and I used to read the book 3 hoặc 4 times per year. The truth is that when I first read it I was too young to actually understand all the important issues, like social class, gender relations,

"CALIFORNIA" (1947) Review

I am a history nut. And one of my yêu thích historical periods that I tình yêu to study is the Antebellum Era of the United States. One of my yêu thích topics from this period is the California vàng Rush. I also tình yêu movies. But despite this love, I have been constantly disappointed bởi Hollywood's inability to create a first-rate movie about vàng Rush.

I may have to take back my bình luận about Hollywood's inability to produce a first-rate movie hoặc ti vi production about the vàng Rush. There were at least three that managed to impress me. Unfortunately, the latest film...

RELEASE OF OLD BBC PRODUCTIONS

Since the release of the 1975 miniseries "NORTH AND SOUTH" in 2013, I have found myself wondering about other BBC productions from the 1960s and 1970s.

I recently discovered that the 1996 miniseries, "THE TENANT OF WILDFELL HALL" was the một giây adaptation of Anne Brontë's novel. The first was a 1968 miniseries that starred Janet Munro, Bryan Marshall and Corin Redgrave. I also discovered that the 1999 miniseries, "WIVES AND DAUGHTERS", was not the first adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel. The BBC aired an earlier adaptation in 1971 that starred Zhivila Roche.

Does anyone know how to contact the BBC? I would like them to consider releasing these two productions in the near future.
"THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO" (1934) Review

I have seen only two versions of Alexandre Dumas père's 1845 novel, "The Count of Monte Cristo" in my past - the 1975 ti vi version with Richard Chamberlain and the 2002 Disney film with James Cavielzel. While đọc a good number of các bài viết about the movie versions of the novel, I came across numerous praises for the 1934 adaptation that starred Robert Donat. And since I happened to like Dumas' story so much, I decided to see how much I would like this older version.

Set between the last months of the Napoleonic Wars and the 1830s, "THE COUNT...

"GONE WITH THE WIND" (1939) Review

Several years ago, I had come across an bài viết that provided a danh sách of old classics that the tác giả felt might be overrated. One of those phim chiếu rạp turned out to be the 1939 Oscar winning film, "GONE WITH THE WIND". Not only did the tác giả accuse the movie of being both racist and sexist, he also claimed that the movie had not aged very well over the past seven decades.

Did I agree with the author? Well, let me put it this way. I would say that "GONE WITH THE WIND" has managed to withstand the tests of time . . . to a certain extent. As the tác giả had pointed...
