Nash wrote:Now....I found this one recently. Don't know whether any of you have seen it before, Paulette Goddard, Dorothy Lamour and Veronica Lake doing a tongue-in-cheek number about their sex symbol trademarks, a sweater, a sarong and a peekaboo bang. It may seem appallingly bad at the start but keep watching and it gets weird towards the end and completely bizarre at the very end.
Nash wrote:That's beautiful David, makes me want to see the rest of the film. I love the use of muted colours which brings the focus directly onto the central character in each scene. Some lovely attention to detail too, the figure in the fourth window along in the moving apartment block (I wonder what he thinks to it all?) and the way the tuba turns to watch the apartment block leave (which of course it would, being attached to the player). Lovely, just lovely.

What a beautiful song Skylark is!
I didn't know you were into martial arts films Geoff! I used to like some of the seventies Japanese films, Shogun Assassin, Lady Snowblood, that sort of thing.
Have you tried any of the more recent offerings? You could go Korean with Old Boy (which is definitely not schmaltzy! BRUTAL it is!)
Or if you fancy a bit of OTT cartoon style kung fu then there's always Kung Fu Hustle:
