    i'm sure i would glance through it, but i'm sure i wouldn't have time to read the whole thing. or else the last few chapters would be along the lines of "i wonder where undies disappeared to."

    Yes, I did. It is really moving. I like the simplicity of it.

    It would be a short book...

    More like a pamphlet.

    A truly remarkable piece of cinematography. Billy Williams won an Oscar for shooting the film. He also did half of the camera work on Gandhi when Ronnie Taylor was taken ill.
    In case you don't now think that I am completely daft, I will amuse you still further by telling you that I nearly got thrown out on my ear when I committed the company to opening this film in the Haymarket. Once again I won the day when the opening night was attended by 2 members of the Royal Family and the film broke the theaters box office records during it's 6 month run. It was the first time that opera had ever worked in the cinema,largely because it was taken into full location rather than being limited by the opera house stage. Franco Zeffirelli's inclusion of the overture, along with the preludes to acts 2 and 3 were a masterpiece in continuity, setting the atmosphere for the next act.
    On stage, the curtain would have gone up at 7:38. It was at 12:55 that the audience just moved with the film. The final 2 minutes are truly incredible in every sense of the word, making Teresa Stratas a legend among Violetta's.

    Do watch it when you have a couple of hours to spare.

    Mine would be more like an encyclopedia.

    Out of curiosity i may read it without placing too much importance to what was said. People change, situations change. No need to hold people accountable to something said ten years ago. Though i'd be very curious to what my family says behind my back. Perhaps that would be the only thing i would read into while just skimming through the rest.

    A good follow up question is "if you read what everyone has said about you, would you want everyone to read what you've said about them behind their backs?" I can foresee people saying yes to act brave but would they really?

    But how would you know what the good parts are unless you've read the bad parts as well?
  8. Nope, doesn't really bother me what they say. If they can't say it to my face then it isn't worth dealing with.
