Interesting Movies From The Past...

I think one of most bizarre, yet compelling dramas I’ve ever watched and completly enjoyed is A Canterbury Tale made in 1944 by the team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. It tells a reworked story of Chaucer’s 14th century tale set in Kent, and portrays three young people who make a modern day pilgrimage to Canterbury for blessings. Within this plot is the local squire, who for some strange reasoning does not like soldiers and girlfriends getting together and pours glue over the village girls hair at night! Filmed at Denham and around Canterbury it is never-the-less a charming wartime movie that features the talents of Eric Portman, Sheila Sim, Dennis Price and newcomer Sergeant John Sweet (U.S ARMY)
