"ESCAPE FROM FORT BRAVO" (1953) Review

Years ago, I used to watch a great deal of old pelikula on late night television. My two paborito channels that offered these pelikula were Turner Network telebisyon (TNT) and the American pelikula Classic (AMC), which used to air pelikula without any commercial breaks. On TNT, I had stumbled across a Western movie originally released sa pamamagitan ng MGM Studios in 1953 called "ESCAPE FROM FORT BRAVO" (1953) and fell in pag-ibig with it. After watching my recently purchased DVD copy of the movie, I could see why it became a paborito of mine.

As you probably have already guessed, I am rewatching and recapping Poldark. This romantic saga follows Ross Poldark (Robin Ellis) as he loses his fiancée, the well-bred beauty, Elizabeth (Jill Townsend), to his cousin Francis (Clive Francis).

After all, people have been aware of other Austen adaptations during this same period or earlier. Even the Wikipedia site fails to mention it, except in connection with one of the cast members. What was about this four-part miniseries that eluded so many Austen fans?

In "SENSE AND SENSIBILITY", a wealthy landowner named Mr. Dashwood dies, leaving his two...

"LOVE & FRIENDSHIP" (2016) Review

I never thought any film or telebisyon production would find another story written sa pamamagitan ng Jane Austen to adapt. Not really. The may-akda only had six novels published. And I was never really aware of any other novels, novellas or short stories . . . until I learned about "LOVE & FRIENDSHIP", Whit Stillman's adaptation of Austen's 1794 epistolary novel, "Lady Susan".

Set during the 1790s, "LOVE & FRIENDSHIP" began with the aristocratic and lovely young widow, Lady Susan Vernon, being forced to leave the Manwaring estate due to her dalliance with the married...
