  1. Hadn’t heard of this one, let alone seen this one but will definitely seek out.

    Love Stairway to Heaven. And I have seen Black Narcissus which is one of those movies you need to see once to experience it. I don’t know if I need to see it again but it is beautifully shot and it shows how isolation can make one mad.

    Great discussion as always.

  2. Very interesting discussion guys. I also had not heard of this film despite being a former ENG major. We had to read the Canterbury Tales in the original old English when I was in grad school. I will surely check this one out!

  3. When I saw the title of this episode’s movie, I thought, “Wow! Someone made a film adaptation of Canterbury Tales? I have to see that.” Once I got over my initial disappointment at it not being a direct adaptation, I realized that this still sounds like a really interesting film. Thank you for putting a spotlight on it for all of us.

  4. Always a pleasure to hear Martin, and this sounds like an interesting movie. As soon as you said Dennis Price, my ears perked up. Old British leading actors never die…they just become supporting players in Hammer Horrors, The Avengers, and Doctor Who. 😉
