No man is an island, entire of itself..................
any man's death deminishes me, because I am involved in man kind , and therefore never sent to know " For Whom The Bell Tolls". It tolls for thee.........

A quote from a novel by Ernest Hemingway's
Island in the stream.
Being against it doesn't make you a good person.
Tonight, I was faced with it and I was evil myself.
I could feel it coming in like a tidal wave ....... I just wanted to destroy them............... But, when you begin to take pleasure in it yourself you become awfully close to the very thing you yourself are trying to fight off.............

Islands in the Stream. 1977.
Director; Franklin J. Shattner.
Starring; George C. Scott, David Hemmings,
Gilbert Roland, Brad Savage, Michael - James Wixted,
Jessica Rains,Walter Friedel, Chris Lampkin, Hildy Brooks.
Synopsis;
War, Freedom, Loyalty,Love, Manhood.
Ernest Hemingway's most powerful themes are gloriously
captured in Islands In The Stream, a classic masterpiece revealed for all .
The story takes place in the late 1930's ,with the threat of war hanging in the horizon an isolated sculpter is visited by his three Son's , he tries desperately to raise them to become good up standing pillar's of the community as well as trying to battle with his "own demon's in Life", and to ward off his past "anger towards those around him" as well as to win back the respect his Sons once had for him.
Which leaves him in "a constant turmoil", as he becomes
"physically and mentally transformed" as he "sink's into the role of an aging alcholic".
" Torn between flash back's of fantasies and regrets " these are "clearly portrayed in the film as a dying mans thoughts being "unleashed". But the film manages to do much more than that it grasp's the viewer's imagination and proves the magic of the Big silver screen
Enjoy. :))

The Lion in Winter (1968) : Historical Drama based upon a Broadway play

Anthony Harvey not only directed established celluloid heavyweights Peter O'Toole & Katharine Hepburn but also Anthony Hopkins (first big film role) & Timothy Dalton (film Debut). It netted 3 Oscars including best actress.

You'll need to be okay with the costume & castle walls backdrop .... 1183 A.D.& King Henry II's three sons all want to sit on that throne & wear that royal crown. Old King Henry just won't make a choice. Not only his sons but also his wife plot against him to serve their own ends ...

Family, politics, power & money .... A thousand years gone by and what did mankind learn?
