84, Charing Cross Road,

The other evening, I was scanning through the thing, that passes as what's on the television; and I came upon a channel listed under the  'Entertainment' misnomer, Foxtel Classics; and running through the fare on offer for said 'other evening' I came across the film entitled '84, Charing Cross Road', starring Anne Bancroft and Anthony Hopkins.  Taken … Continue reading 84, Charing Cross Road,

Not wishing to make a spectacle of myself but……………
