Nostalgia ain't what it used to be!
My memory button was pressed by this thread, b ut not regarding music: who is old enough to remember Saturday Morning Pictures at the Odeon? In our less sophisticated days, we sat watching the Flash Gordon serial with breath abated, hardly able to stand waiting a week to see how he survived the cliff-hanger. And those cowboy films, wagons in a circle to defend against the indians....

Ron.

Not surprised it was music that jogged your memory on going to the cinema where it played in the background until they invented talkies. :P :P :P ;D ;D ;D

Don't worry Ron, I also remember all too well the Pearl & Dean adverts and the 'B' movie, that was sometimes better than the main film! ::) ::) ;D ;D ;)

The "B" film on one occasion was Roman Holiday, with the achingly beautiful Audrey Hepburn. I fell in love with her immediately, along with almost all of the male population, regardless of age!
Little did I realise that the film was due to become a classic.

Not a 'B' film, but I saw a film in the early 1960's starring the young Sophia Loren which gave me a role model, although I never looked as good as she did! Can't remember for the life of me what the film was called, but it was based in Italy :D :D ;)

It may well have been Ron; it does ring a bell. I always thought it was Never on a Sunday, but then some time ago I discovered she was not even in that film! ::) ;)

No, wasn't that Melina Mercouri? Or did she sing the title song? Oh, the number of wishbones I used up over those women! :-[

While out driving the car today I heard a song by a great songwriter who I had forgotten about for a few years.
John Prine.

This song is about a Vietnam veteran,and could bring a grown man to tears.

This is about how lonely the elderly can get.

Apparently in The state penitentiary in Montgomery Alabama, the governor pardons some inmates periodically, and these lucky ones are know as Angels (who fly) from Montgomery.
I believe he wrote this about his sisters unhappy marriage.

Yes, but I ain't!  :P

Ron.

You should have done as the weather was exceptionally pleasant for the time of year. I went out late morning on my bike with a 4-mile round trip doing my local weekly shopping. Yesterday I was up in London and walked about 5-miles, including to my local station back, between our branch line and the mainline to Waterloo and back and across the Thames over Waterloo bridge to Holborn, but got a bus back to Waterloo as it was dark. :y :y :y
