    An unlikely pairing for the final...

    Far from being my idea of the greatest British film, I shall nevertheless cast my vote for

    Horror of Dracula

    (go Hammer, go! [​IMG] [​IMG] )

    No, just my fantasy starring Catherine Zeta-Jones as Penny Pie.

    thanks for playing. It was fun at times.


    Might as well finish this off with a poll.

    Top 10 British films IMO

    1. A Matter of Life and Death
    2. Lawrence of Arabia
    3. The Third Man
    4. The Ladykillers
    5. Bridge on the River Kwai
    6. Life of Brian (Holy Grail gets more laughs but this is the more biting satire)
    7. A Clockwork Orange
    8. Horror of Dracula
    9. From Russia With Love
    10. The Red Shoes
