Looking forward to it.  I quite liked that film.

I'll spend a good-sized portion of the review talking about the nature of tragedy, as helped by Jean Anouilh. That said, that Glasto article isn't up yet, and given that it's the fourth of July today (we may be Anglophiles, but we're still technically Yanks), and that Thursday is kind of a full day, it may be a while before it goes live.

So, of course, I've adopted it, just to annoy the shit out of her. My "mid-Atlantic accent" has more than a touch of Tennessee Tuxedo to it, which I'm sure enhances her enjoyment.

When I was a kid on the Autism spectrum, I wound up adopting a lot of old-time speech patterns and inflections, mostly because, for whatever reason, it was easier for me to learn to speak from watching TV (and certainly the advent of closed captioning helped with that, since I managed to learn to read before I could speak worth a damn.) And, of course, I wound up getting interested in old movies from an early age.

And naturally, as my interests diverged from my mother's, if my mother expressed distaste for something I watched, my immediate response was to double down on my interest and freak her out.

Also, for some reason, one day a couple months ago, I spent most of the day doing a James Mason impersonation; it's a bit more obviously English, but, amazingly, in practice, it tends to work for a large variety of different nationalities, whether it's a Frenchman (20,000 leagues), an Englishman (Lord Jim), a Yank (Bigger than Life), or whatever Humbert Humbert is supposed to be.

I found "A Town Without Christmas" the other day. I kept on scrolling.

That was a pretty decent light hearted comedy. I liked it, too. Rosalind Russell was good playing a variety of characters. I liked her in "Night Must Fall" with Robert Montgomery and in "Picnic" with William Holden.

 I loved the first one. Dash's epic run was just amazing.

Good Bye, Mr. Chips (1939). IMO, this is a wonderful movie.
