    I’ll have to check out “Valentino”–I grew up watching a video of Nureyev and Dame Margot Fonteyn in “Swan Lake” (though I was terrified of Von Rothbart and I still don’t get why they thought they needed all those close-ups of him). Nureyev was gorgeous and MY GOSH could he dance!! He’s still one of my favourites.

    I’d love to hear what you think of it! I think you will enjoy it, but I am pretty sure you will conclude that Nureyev was a better dancer than an actor. Thanks for a great comment!

    Dear Mr. Dyke:
    On the eve in Edmonton, Alberta as posted above; I viewed the exacting motion picture “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang;” at the then Venue of Ave.
    The enormous feature of this brilliant filming is Ms Andrew’s (a Julie; I named my true full Roman Catholic daughter in front of the Grey Nuns Hospital for health identification); here I viewed today in part with my Dear love and beauty wife, a Ms Janet Ellen; the reason I love this kool film is the inventive humour I find all British in flavour.
    The scene Mr. Caractacus Potts; a Jew in head and an Irish in temperament fights away being poor by creating a ‘flying machine;’ a Ms Sally Ann Howes heads direction as a ‘flighty’ women in need of a marital to Mr. Van Dyke.
    In Mr. Ian Fleming’s masterful concert in written gospel of baby bear th; the cry for all young; children of all background play safe and remain unharmed!
    The auto here is a proven Rolls part; and Mercedes; the engine inside is a kool 490-cubic-inch; Ford. The wings unfold by a diesel motor from an Austin, Texan power plant to kool the hydraulics from over heating to drinkable clear, like Texan men who care about their mother and with due respect; world wide.!
    The bang! Bang!, is the sound of a drum used by my insight; this is accomplished by a metal ‘thud;’ a Ms Anna Quayle heads a rousing song: ‘My First Is New And Here'; this Rogers and Hammerstein composition; along with Metro Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures new sound-track invented by the Central Intelligence Agency along with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Unit-1A; of decoding; did a brilliant recording serving the motion pictures realm, since 1960.
