I don't know how Catherine did it - I couldn't have that kind of control.


I've got iron self control Laughing But the week I got the book I had my Film Studies exam so I was concentrating on that and saving the book up for a treat. But I still haven't read it all- I spend too much time posting on this forum Smile

I got it, finally, and read it in 5 hours (which is quickly read in foreing language). I didn´t know it was that much of Robin Lane Fox´s book!! I mean, he put quite a lot his points of view to the whole thing there, and actually very funny points of view Very Happy ... I envy that old man... I wish I had been there making the film... Very Happy

Is he the same person talking on National Geographic´s dvd Beyond the Movie - Alexander?... Have to see it again...
What beyond the movie I must ask? Evil or Very Mad This dvd has nothing to do with the movie. I bought it... poor me... waste of money... Crying or Very sad

I've half read the book - I found it interesting that Our Colin debated with RLF about his theories re Alexander the person. And the section on RLF's meeting and preliminary discussion with OS were also enlightening re what the film could have been, the process of determining what to put in and what to leave out &c. Quite an entertaining read.

yes, reading about the thought processes and decision-making was a fantastic eye-opener and generally this should leave no-one in doubt as to the level of dedication on the part of everyone involved. Credit to 'em! Even if RLF never mailed us back Sad Wink

And a big hello to tv! Smile
