Pipsqueak, I read your words and a chill went down my spine. They aren't showing it anymore?? I'm going to have to find out how much this applies to the rest of the UK. If they think I'm stopping at three showings.....

/has panic attack

What about our cunning scheme to meet up and watch it together (I was serious)? Sadly, I can't afford to go to Italy Crying or Very sad .
We'll have to organise something DVD-related now. And maybe meet up to shoot this muscial Smile

I'm not quiet sure about the part where Philip was saying about young Alexander "musical career", it was the part where young alex was going to ride the horse. Why he said that?

Adriv- it seems that today in Britain if you say 'being musical' it means 'being gay'. Perhaps Philip knew his son was gay Laughing Laughing

Sorry, I am just being silly and joking. I am in a silly mood today Laughing

From what I have read, when Alexander was young (around 10 or so) he used to play the lyre and sing. Obviously, he was pretty good because his father told him that he should be ashamed to sing so well; Alexander gave up music after that. That's how the story goes anyway and hence, the reference to a "musical career".
