I can remember as if it were yesterday. The Corn Is Green is one of those simple movies that has a most profound story; it is the tale of a young Welsh miner who is discovered to have extraordinary intelligence and is taken in to learn at Miss Moffat’s school. She prepares him with dedication and tenacity using every conceivable lesson, book and exercise she can find for him to prepare for his eventual test to be accepted into Oxford. This film deserves to be seen, not only for Bette Davis’ great work, but for the pleasure of a story that needs to be heard. Life can bring us surprises we can never dream of; there is always something new awaiting us if we only give it time and effort. Watch full flim here
Thank you Audrey for being an instrument in this film. The Nun’s Story, is a very moving and compelling portrait of a young lady’s entry into the convent and how she struggles to find her real self and her place in the world. Audrey gives the performance of her life. Her great acting with a superb appearance by Dame Edith Evans as Mother Superior in a supporting role is perfection. This film has been with me all of my life. As all great films do, it speaks on many levels to the heart of those who will listen and will help inspire some to find what is their purpose is in life. The experience needed to grow and fulfill one’s role in life may be difficult but if we could have a Franz Waxman soundtrack as absolutely perfect as this one is then life, like in a film would be immeasurably tolerable. Sadly, real life does not come with a soundtrack. Maybe, somewhere in the Universe it does [sigh]. We can only hope. Audrey Hepburn has been in my life always in one way or another through her films. This film, which was always one of my favorites profoundly impressed…
A great old film with the legendary Spencer Tracy and Freddie Bartholomew from my childhood memories. The film is about a spoiled, rich young boy who learns to know what real wealth, in this life, is. Spencer Tracy, who plays Manuel in the film, was one of the great actors ever in American film history. Watch full film here.
It took me 34 years to see this movie. The scene presented here is extremely prophetic of what the U.S. has become and is headed towards, along with the rest of the world! Details of the film

Think, know and experience. Add your thoughts to my blog. I want to know what people are thinking in their individual endeavour through this experience of life which I call the song of life. Sing your song, sing it loud and let others know who you are, where you are going and how you hope to get there. Remember life is a journey not a destination, although it is nice to get someplace in life and rest for a while but then you have to continue your journey, otherwise, life will stagnate and then you really will “die”. Remember life is about living. Live each moment fully and consciously. Know what you are doing and why. To me life has a to have meaning and a purpose and lessons to learn to evolve spiritually, just like we are evolving physically. As above, so below.
