They Don't Make 'Em Like That Anymore

Movies, that is.

Presently it  is 44 degrees Celcius (8% humidity) in the shade so one is reduced to watching reruns of old moves.

Today's are a pair of gems.  Huckleberry Finn starts in a couple of minutes and I've just watched Geordie.  I remember  my parents taking us to see Geordie when it first came  out.  It screened at the Kawakawa picture theatre.

The stand out moment was the scene in  which the young herculean highlander singlehandedly lifts the front of a crashed car to allow the rescue of the crash victim.

As soon as the victim was freed someone rushed over and stuck a fag in his gob - so all was well.
