Please add any thoughts, opinions, views etc on any aspect of British cinema, particularly the 1960s - I'd like to hear from you.

Love your site reminded me of some classics I had forgotten from the 60,s. I like comparing remakes with the originals. recently bought both versions of Brighton Rock in the newer version there is a
scene in the deleted scenes where Pinkie tells the gang to drop the teddy boy image and become MOD to blend in with the crowd. I think the movie lost something by not including this Scene.

Some serious work has gone into that Saint Etienne page - funny hearing the quotes in pictures... "Hobart Paving" is a builder's merchants in Croydon (or at least used to be) - a bloke on a Saint
Etienne forum wrote he saw it when cycling through there. adding "I nearly fell off my bike"!!!
When you've finished with the samples you should get yourself a copy of their new album "Words and music by Saint Etienne". The cover is a map (Croydon again funnily enough!) but all the roads and
landmarks etc have a musical connection eg the station is called "Clarksville" there's a "Paisley Park" and "Marios Cafe" - but there are some rather more obscure ones. It would keep you occupied for
