Dir. Otto Bell, UK, Mongolia, 2016

An awesome real-life documentary for family audiences. The first Kazakh girl in Mongolia in a 1,000 years to learn how to hunt with a golden eagle. A visual treat in which the camera simply flies.

Dir Carol Reed, UK, 1953

Carol Reed's excellent, newly restored Cold War thriller set in the wreckage of post-war Berlin and starring James Mason, Claire Bloom and Hildegard Knef is very much in the mould of The Third Man.

Splendid first British feature from J Arthur Rank about rivalry between old and new fishing families in the seaside village of Robin Hoods Bay. Based on a book by Leo Walmsley who lived in the bay, where much (and Whitby) of the film was made.

Dir. David Butler (US 1953, 101mins U)

Shout it from the highest hill, the Deadwood stagecoach is coming over the black hills of Holmfirth. An entirely enjoyable whip-crack-away, gun totin', technicolour Doris Day musical. Sing-along it's no secret anymore...

Prize for best dressed cowgirl of the night.

IL POSTINO (The Postman) IS PART OF 2019'S LADIES WOT LUNCH EVENT.

Re-released and remastered, this is one of the most romantic films ever made. Set in a beautiful looking 1950s' Italy, a moving tale of poetry, love and friendship, made ever more poignant by the knowledge that the actor Massimo Trisosi, playing the poorly-educated Postman, died the day after filming ended.

Dir. Massimo Triosi, Michael Radford (Italy 1994 114mins 12)
