  3. I think the 1988 Little Dorrit was disappointing, which spent much of its unprecedented six hours repeating itself, when it could have used more of the novel.
  4. Last week I saw four movies. The Personal history of David Copperfield was probably the best. It's probably foolish to try to fit in one of the most complicated novels in English literature in only two hours. So this adaptation concentrates on the most amusing bits and touches of the novel. Rather oddly, out of a whole host of minor characters, it is Hugh Laurie as Mr. Dick who gets an undue amount of attention. But actually it's one of his best performances in years.

  8. Until a year ago, I was still using my VCR to record things, except I was running out of tapes, my VCR was having problems, and when I recorded things the image would be unsteady. So I contacted my cable company and got a DVR box. Your company might be generous about it.
  9. Is there a reason why Tabu: A Story of the South Seas has only appeared once on TCM, shortly after it was founded I believe?
