Story of a chorus girl who is "discovered" and finds romance during the unraveling of a mystery in a once derelict theatre.
The film is based
on the moving novel by Nevil Shute. It is set during WWII in British
Malaya, 1941. The Japanese army has been advancing rapidly through
the British territory. The men they captured are sent off to labor camps,
but they don’t have a plan to deal with the many women and children that
are left behind. Not sure what to do with them, the Japanese force their
captives to march for miles and months on end all over Malaya in search
of a camp willing to take them in. Virginia McKenna plays one of the
courageous women prisoners, who through her fighting spirit and will to
survive, keeps the others going on their arduous journey.
One of the most underrated British films produced between the end of the swinging sixties and the beginning of the hippy seventies. Leonard Whiting (Romeo from Franco Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet) plays a young dreamer who is trapped in a working class existence: living in a council house with a father who has no horizon higher than working in the local factory. Jean Simmons is the mature woman, living in a leafy Surrey house with her stockbroker husband and two children, but desperately unhappy. When the two unlikely lovers meet on a train to London, Whiting ignores the come-on from Susan Penhaligon by saying 'today I am going to climb Mount Everest,' and so begins his charm offensive of the mature woman across London's 1970s landscape. Beautifully written and with expert filming by Geoffrey Unsworth, Say Hello to Yesterday is one of the most insightful British films of its day.
Disney's classic story about a snubbed malevolent fairy that casts a curse on a princess that only a prince can break, with the help of three good fairies.
