The Gangster and the Bridegroom
As our British crime drama opens, we meet George and Willie sitting side by side at a little countryside brook. After chatting with a local fisherman we discover that they are handcuffed together. George Martin, played by Jack Warner, is a hardened criminal and Willie, played by George Cole, is a young fellow who was wrongfully arrested for being too fresh with a girl after the town dance. Martin jumped form the police car that was transporting them and Willie, handcuffed to the criminal, had to go along. Together they are running from the cops who are searching the English countryside for them, and Martin the criminal knows how to stay away from the places that the coppers will be watching. Meanwhile, in the small town where the two fugitives from justice are fleeing a young reporter from a London newspaper has just arrived with his new bride with the expectation that he will enjoy a wonderful honeymoon. Just as reporter Ronnie Waring, played by David Tomlinson, enters his honeymoon hotel the desk clerk hands him the telephone, and his editor is on the other end. The reporter must abandon his new bride and follow the unfolding manhunt for the two escaped prisoners who are certainly very near the reporter's honeymoon hotel. His new bride is very understanding and knows that his job comes before their honeymoon if there is a hot story developing, so the wedding night that reporter Waring has waited for all his life is on hold as he chases around the British countryside looking for the story of the year. This leads to that and before the escaped prisoners are caught, reporter Waring finally has had enough and tells his editor that he is quitting his job . . . . So that he can go to bed . . . . Well, . . . . Finally a bit of good sense by the Brit reporter! Meanwhile the escaped men have separated thanks to a hacksaw provided by the hardened criminal's petrol station gasoline pumping girlfriend, and after an accidental murder they are separated and on their own with the coppers closing in . . . . The reporter has his bride, the hardened criminal is on the run, and the mamma's boy he was handcuffed to has given himself up to the local constables . . . . Now it comes down to a frantic manhunt between England's finest and a criminal with nothing to lose . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.

Welcome to the LARGEST PRIVATELY OWNED website in the world, with more than 3 terabytes of movie files and still growing by more than 10 gigabytes every week - all shared freely with every visitor world-wide. If you wanted to burn all of my video files to dvd's you would need well over TWO THOUSAND blank dvds! Oh . . . by the way . . . are you interested in knowing where the second largest privately owned web site is? Heh . . . that would be my Classic Television Show web site :~)
2014 was an exciting year for me, and I want to say thank you to every visitor that enjoys these old movies as much as I do. Four years ago I found myself with the knowledge to create nice web pages, along with a stack of old public domain movies that I owned and enjoyed. I decided to share them with the world . . . I thought that the 150 or so movies that I had collected were all the public domain movies in existence, but soon discovered more, and with good research and the help of the internet I am still discovering lost classics to share. Thanks to the amazing people at the Dream Network I am able to share more than 2,000 almost forgotten classics, with many more sitting on my shelf waiting their turn to be added to this web site. In 2014 the number of friends visiting the site and enjoying the movies tripled, and I am very grateful. One day in 2014 I got an e-mail note from Sir Robert Rietty, a British actor and voice-over specialist who wanted to thank me for sharing movies featuring himself and his famous acting teacher father Victor Rietti. We became e-mail friends, and I was able to find even more of his movies that were in public domain and share them with him and you, and Sir Robert was gracious enough to share behind-the-scenes stories about some of his experiences. I have also been honored to meet and become friends with Canadian director Rex Bromfield, a longtime friend of Richard Burton. Rex shared two experiences with Burton that have never been made public before, and I shared them with you in my reviews of the 1973 Welsh productions starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, Divorce His and the sequel Divorce Hers. I was also fortunate in discovering Adrian, a film collector in England, and I have been able to purchase many old British films that I, and indeed most folk outside Britain have never seen or heard of. It appears that 2015 will be the year of British Classics thanks to Adrian. I cannot describe with words how much joy I am enjoying while building this web site and sharing the movies that I love with the rest of the world. Thank you all for sharing in my journey and exploring the stories produced during the first years of motion picture history. The past four years have been an incredible journey, but I suspect that the best is yet ahead of us, so stick around and visit often . . . And don't be shy about sending me a note, I cherish every one and respond to all of them.
If you find an error or factual mistake, please use the contact page to let me know so that I can correct it for everyone else. This web site celebrates the efforts of every actor - not just the stars - because like a grand stew, each actor adds a unique flavor to the film, and without any of them the movie would not be the same. If you are one of these actors, or a friend or family member of an actor, please send me any anecdotes and stories that you know about any of them, and I will gladly add them to the site to enrich our knowledge about that actor or the movie they played in.
