Billy's Wilder's The Apartment, William Wyler's Roman Holiday, Michael Powell's A Matter Of Life And Death, Carol Reed's The Third Man, George Cukor's The Philadelphia Story and Howard Hawks' His Girl Friday battle it out in my all-time top 10. Wilder is my #1 director. Top stars include: Claudette Colbert, James Stewart, Buster Keaton, Carole Lombard, Jean Arthur, Cary Grant, Jack Lemmon, Audrey Hepburn, Ginger Rogers
I virtually live at BFI Southbank exploring their fantastic line-up. Also go to Prince Charles a lot and sometimes Barbican. No current specific suggestions.
I'm a BFI habitue who is interested in all film but especially cinema of the 1930s & 1940s. My background is in film journalism and distribution and I tweet under @LondonMovieLoon
Apologies for not making the pre-meet. As mentioned when originally replied to come along I was at A Hard Day's Night introduced by Richard Lester beforehand and as you'll all be aware it over-ran so i had no gap. Hope to meet some of you another time. I'm often at BFI and tend to mention what i'm going to via @LondonMovieLoon on twitter.
