    Desert Island Discs

    Is that the 1993 London Revival or its 1994 US run? I find the London version is amazing, while the US version isn't so good (the actress playing Julie is incredibly grating). Though both CDs have some unique musical inclusions. London (NT = National Theatre), I didn't even know they'd recorded the US transfer of that production. I know the London album isn't anywhere near complete, but I'm very happy with it overall.

    Desert Island Discs

    Carousel (NT revival cast) Superman: The Movie (my own one-disc edited version, or if I can't do that, disc one from the blue box) Vertigo (Joel McNeely re-recording) Which recording? (I've been meaning to buy a recording ever since I saw the show last year, can you recommend one?)

  5. They're normally about 1:00 or 2:00am in the UK.

    300 is on there as well, just below Revenge of the Sith.

    The Guess the Screenshot game

    Nearly all of those look familiar. I'll guess a few of them: 3. Captain Blood? Or maybe The Sea Hawk. 9. Jaws 13. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade 15. The Return of the King 19. Raiders of the Lost Ark 25. The Usual Suspects

    Vangelis vs Zimmer

    Vangelis. I wouldn't say I'm a fan, but he's written some interesting stuff. I like the Blade Runner score in the film a lot.

    What is the last film you watched?

    Great film, glad you liked it. Who called it a "failed comedy", by the way? I think what comedy there is works well, but the film is mainly a drama (and a very good one). I'd love to see the deleted material (especially if it's as good as Rozsa claims in the CD booklet), but I think the film works anyway as it is. And the score is one of my absolute favourites.
  11. For the UK: Yes, both. Can be for about 20 minutes on the new releases. Popcorn, and hot dogs and burgers. No. There's no smoking allowed in any public buildings in the UK now. Mostly. Smaller cinemas sometimes don't, but nearly all the big ones do. Yep. Sadly not. There are only a few I've come across, most of them have been knocked down or converted into multiplexes. I've heard about it happening in mainland Europe, but I've never seen it in the UK (fortunately).

    Hitchcock on DVD

    Both of those are coming out separately (finally!) in October, as well (along with Rear Window). http://www.dvdactive.com/news/releases/vertigo.html http://www.dvdactive.com/news/releases/psycho.html http://www.dvdactive.com/news/releases/rear-window.html After these are out, I think that only leaves the remastered Birds DVD that isn't available separately.

    Hitchcock on DVD

    MGM are releasing a new box set in October containing: Rebecca The Lodger The Paradine Case Spellbound Notorious Young and Innocent Sabotage Lifeboat http://www.dvdactive.com/news/releases/alf...collection.html Extras look very nice. Obviously don't know anything about the quality yet, but hopefully it'll be good. I'd wait until this set's out and been reviewed before making a decision on what to get. As mentioned above you're safe with the Criterion DVDs of The 39 Steps and The Lady Vanishes, and the three Alfred Hitchcock Presents volumes from Universal.
