    It's available with Amazon Prime. I finally saw it there and there are terrific performances all around. Also Man in Orange Shirt, for anyone who missed that.

    "The Man in the Orange Shirt" is one of the great gay love stories.

    Both of the actors, so deeply in love, are memorable.

    Fredric March in the 1940s on TCM

    THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES with Myrna Loy

    ANOTHER PART OF THE FOREST with Florence Eldridge

    ONE FOOT IN HEAVEN with Martha Scott

    BEDTIME STORY with Loretta Young

    TOMORROW THE WORLD with Betty Field

    SUSAN AND GOD with Joan Crawford

    "Tomorrow The World" has such a happy ending - a happy ending that doesn't fit.

    I just saw this on TCM on demand. It is very entertaining with a fine cast. It's sort of a whimsical Irish version of "Night Of The Hunter" with two kids being pursued by a villain for money. Ron Moody has a flashy role as the wicked uncle who uses disguises. There is a St Patrick's day parade that seems to be an homage to the "Who Will Buy" scene from "Oliver!". Jack Wild did a few more films in this period that I would like to see. There is the movie version of "Pufnstuf" (I already own the DVD of the TV show) and "The Pied Piper" featuring Scottish folksinger Donovan in the title role. 

    Yes, I remember watching "Pufnstuf" on Saturday mornings.

    How did you find the DVD set?

    "The Pied Piper" with Donovan, is a very interesting film.

    It was directed by the man who gave us "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg".

    I am so glad that you enjoyed "Flight of the Doves".

    I'd like to read the book.

    I am a big fan of Jack Wild, yet I never heard of this one.

    Most know him for his Oscar nominated Dodger in "Oliver!" but I really love "Melody" which reunited him with his "Oliver!" co star Mark Lester. It is a touching and funny look at childhood friendships and first love, great soundtrack by The Bee Gees as well. 

    I've never heard of "Melody".

    But, believe me, "Flight of the Doves" is a fine film.
