meanwhile at the local glory hole

Good film.Basic rom/com stuff that’s been done time and time again rehashed redone and spat out again.But this is one of the early ones that manages to get it spot on.Story goes;a young princess sneaks out of the palace place and meets Gregory Peck and does all the normal stuff she wouldn’t be allowed to do.He plans to sell pics and a story of all this stuff but falls for her in the end and has a change of heart.The ending wasn’t what i expected but then i remembered the title of the film and see it was better this way.

233 – Bring Up Baby (1938)

Hanging with a leopard.

Hanging with a leopard.

This one gave me a headache.I can’t see how someone could have sat  through this in a cinema.Its about this fast talking scatterbrained woman and this mild mannered pushover dinosaur bone guy (Grant) and a leopard that escapes.Hi-jinks ensue.Let me save you 97 minutes of your life;they fall in love by the end and kiss.
