My favourite movie isΒ  84 Charing Cross Road (CLICK HERE for more info) starring Anthony Hopkins and Ann Bancroft. Anthony Hopkins is also my favourite actor :-). I first saw the movie in the 1980s at the theatre and watched it on video many time since. I wonder if it has gone digital …

Link is from Wikipedia.


  1. Avalon with Aiden Quinn. I really love tales of immigration and how it affects the generations to come. Avalon was a beautiful examination of what was gained and what was lost from one family’s arrival in America.
    I LOVED it!!!!!

  2. I enjoyed 84 Charing Cross Road, but I’ve only seen it once. Their pen pal relationship is a bit like blogging, eh?

    • Thanks Nancy. Yes I agree with the similarity – I was going to say something relating to that in the post but couldn’t find the right words πŸ™‚

  3. I do not think I have seen this movie. I must hire the DVD and watch it. I do love Anthony Hopkins.. except of course his character in Silence of the Lambs. Although it deserved an oscar I have never been able to watch that movie a second time. It fills me with horror.
    Love that quote!

  4. Mmm… I don’t really do movies. Those who know me know my one liner…
    “I don’t live other people’s fantasies… I create my own!”
    But… I have seen some pretty good movies in my day… a few that stand out…
    The Right Stuff
    Dead Poet’s Society
    and… The Highlander… because it was the first movie I went to watch with my good lady.
    Those were the days…
    the last time I was in a movie house was with my good lady and the two boys… for (supposidly) the movie of all movies… that horrid third movie in the Lord of the Rings trilogy!
    I hated it… all I remember is darkness and NOISE!!
    No… for me, that wrecked Tolkien’s magic! Almost permanently! I can’t really think of rereading the book as the horror of the movie is seared into my brain!
    OK.. I’ll go away… before the movie police come looking for me! πŸ˜‰

  5. Thanks for your thoughts Vossey. I actually think you would enjoy the movie I mentioned as it is all about old books and the international conversation between the book seller and the buyer. I don’t like my chances of convincing you though. Have a good week πŸ™‚
