I recently re-watched Marty Feldman’s “Every Home Should Have One” which I thought was the best film in film-land back in 1970. What can I say now? Well, it’s . . . er . . . very much of its time!

Shirley Valentine. Many groan when I say it but it’s me. I lived on Crete for some years, sadly having to return due to health issues. My home was on the edge of a lagoon where I sat many evenings watching the sun set. I have the film on video(!) and watch it a couple of times a year, it takes me back to those halcyon days. Willy Russell might have written it for many who are weary of their lives and need to break the mould.
