"POLDARK" SERIES ONE (2015): EPISODES FIVE TO EIGHT

Within the past year, I had developed a major interest in auteur Winston Graham's 1945-2002 "POLDARK" literary saga and the two télévision adaptations of it. Series One of the seconde adaptation produced par Debbie Horsfield, premiered on the BBC (in Great Britain) and PBS (in the United States) last year. Consisting of eight episodes, Series One of "POLDARK" was an adaptation of 1945's "Ross Poldark - A Novel of Cornwall, 1783-1787" and "Demelza - A Novel of Cornwall, 1788-1790".
Whereas Episodes One to Four adapted the 1945 novel, Episodes...

"THE PRISONER OF ZENDA" (1937) Review

I realize that many film critics and fans would agree with my suspicion that the 1930s saw a great deal of action films released to theaters. In fact, I believe there were as high number of actions films released back then as they are now. Among the type of action films that flourished during that era were swashbucklers.

One of the most famous Hollywood swashbucklers released during the 1930s was "THE PRISONER OF ZENDA", producer David O. Selznick's 1937 adaptation of Anthony Hope's 1894 novel. This tale of middle European political intrigue and identity...

"LOST IN AUSTEN" (2008) Review

I must admit that I am usually not a fan of novels ou any other forms of storytelling that are based upon ou continuations of published works of the origin author. This is certainly the case for the numerous works (sans two) based upon Jane Austen's six published novels.

The 2008 miniseries, "LOST IN AUSTEN" is not based upon any particular Austen novel that was not written par the Georgian Era writer. Instead, it is the brainchild of screenwriter Guy Andrews. The latter created this fantasy-comedy, which is an adaptation of Austen's novel, "Pride and Prejudice"...

"THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO" (1934) Review

I have seen only two versions of Alexandre Dumas père's 1845 novel, "The Count of Monte Cristo" in my past - the 1975 télévision version with Richard Chamberlain and the 2002 Disney film with James Cavielzel. While lire a good number of articles about the movie versions of the novel, I came across numerous praises for the 1934 adaptation that starred Robert Donat. And since I happened to like Dumas' story so much, I decided to see how much I would like this older version.

Set between the last months of the Napoleonic Wars and the 1830s, "THE COUNT...

"THE MISSISSIPPI GAMBLER" (1953) Review

Tyrone Power's career took a strange turn during the post-World War II years. Although he still managed to maintain his position as one of Twentieth Century Fox's haut, retour au début stars during the remainder of the 1940s, something happened as the 1950s dawned. Powers still found himself in Grade A films during that particular decade. But he also seemed to appear in a growing number of standard costume melodramas.

Twentieth Century renard lent Powers to Universal Pictures to étoile, star in the 1953 drama called "THE MISSISSIPPI GAMBLER". Directed par Rudolph Maté, "THE MISSISSIPPI...

"CALIFORNIA" (1947) Review

I am a history nut. And one of my favori historical periods that I l’amour to study is the Antebellum Era of the United States. One of my favori topics from this period is the California or Rush. I also l’amour movies. But despite this love, I have been constantly disappointed par Hollywood's inability to create a first-rate movie about or Rush.

I may have to take back my commentaire about Hollywood's inability to produce a first-rate movie ou télévision production about the or Rush. There were at least three that managed to impress me. Unfortunately, the latest film...
