The first movie

I ever saw was Elizabeth Taylor's second, Lassie Come Home. She's the one on the right left. She was twelve when she made it, I was five when I saw it.


Needless to say, Muammar Gaddafi wasn't in it, thus underlining my earlier comment.




& an unbidden segue.....

Gaddafi? Wasn't he the poet from Alexandria that Lawrence Durrell was always going on about?

Dead right about Gaddafi, whom Lawrence Durrell referred to hauntingly as 'the old poet of the city' in his Alexandria Quartet.
