Just saw this KevLa. That's a version I'm not familiar with but may check it out.

A couple of weeks ago Amazon had a one day 65% off on the Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection [Blu-ray]. I took the bait and received a nice collection. Here's the line up:

Dracula (1931)
Frankenstein (1931)
The Mummy (1932)
The Invisible Man (1933)
The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
The Wolf Man (1941)
Phantom of the Opera (1943) The only color film of the bunch.
Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954)

Not quite Dracula, I'm afraid, but something equally to get one's teeth into, so to speak. A documentary looking at some of the paintings in the last part Of Rembrandt van Rijn's life, hosted by Simon Schama. Great artist, great paintings, wonderful techniques and fantastic passion - and lively commentary, to say the least. I don't have TV but was able to see it on iPlayer. Plenty more superlatives spring to mind, but, it's enough to say that I enjoyed the programme very much. And, Rembrandt is one of my art heroes anyway, alongside Michelangelo, Constable, Canaletto and quite a few others.

Every few months I have to scratch an itch to watch "The Last Waltz". I now have it on Blu-Ray but I've been watching since 1988. I still have my VHS copy.

Animal Planet about snakes in Florida. It's a real problem. Don't know why they are not dispatched when and where found. Unless venomous I don't know why they are kept by the animal control officers.

William, I just looked it up on Amazon and the Dracula disk says "Spanish version". Is that what you have and what's the implication of that?

It's not the Spanish version. However, of interest is that the Spanish version was filmed at the same time using the same set but with different actors. Some film critics claim it is the better of the two.

Nothing at the moment (don't have a TV!) but recently saw 'Mr.Turner' (about the artist Turner) at the cinema. Great film, lovely period feel and superb acting, with one of our home grown actors Timothy Spall putting in a great performance. And, being an artist, of course I had to see it!

The video of Chancellor Osborne in Parliament looking either drunk or stoned. Made my morning!
