    No.

    They all had their morality, sense of "right & wrong"
    with the class structure too and "good" people
    separating themselves from less good.
    But, at the end they all appreciate on another.

    It's an apparently common metaphor in film making. Key Largo, Lord of the Flies, Mousetrap, Lifeboat.

    Maybe because people do bond when experiencing strife together.
    Reality. Not metaphor.


    Remember "Japanese Story" :D

    I've always been fond of the mini-series made from Nevil Shute's classic novel, "A Town Like Alice". I particularly liked Bryan Brown's performance as Joe Harman.

    Some people found Steve Martin funny.
    I never really liked his type of retardo humour and I never liked Jerry Lewis type of humour either.

    Now don't misunderstand, both Steve and Jerry in my opinion, were gifted and very talented performers and actors capable of serious performances, just in general, I never liked their particular styles of comedy.

    I finished watching Lonesome Dove last night. I understand there are prequel episodes, so I'll have to find out more about how the sequencing works so I can decide if I want to watch any of them.

    I consider Leap of Faith by far Steve Martin's best movie, and it was not a comedy.

    A good film from the 90's, seems oddly relevant today.

    Lots of good movies on this thread, makes me smile. I've seen most of them and some I watch every so often again.
    ' It's A Wonderful Life ' is not the only movie that can be seen every year. Although a fantastic classic, there are other greats too.
