Rebecca's Daughters 1992
Description: The Rebecca riots took zone in the rural parts of west Wales, including Pembrokeshire, Cardiganshire, and Carmarthenshire, around 1839-1843. Based on a script that Dylan Thomas wrote for Gainsborough Pictures in 1948, "Rebecca's Daughters" explores the tension between the working and ruling classes in 19th century Wales. Young aristocrat Anthony Raine returns home from India to search the farmers of Pembrokeshire protesting about the rates of a tollgate run by something named "The Whitman Turnpike Trust", headed by the drunken King Sarn (Peter O'Toole). So Raine dresses up as a woman, calls himself Rebecca, and leads the common folks to win over their masters.
Released: 05 Mar 1992 Director: Karl Francis Writers: Guy Jenkin, Dylan Thomas (story) Actors: Peter O'Toole, Paul Rhys, Joely Richardson, Dafydd Hywel Genres: Comedy

Sophienlund #

Description: The successful writer Erich Eckberg lives with his wife Sigrid and their three kids -- the twins, Knut and Michael and the daughter Gabriel -- on their estate "Sophienlund". On their sons' 21st birthday, Eckberg says them the nice family secret: Knut and Michael aren't his kids (happy birthday, children ... oh! and did I mention Santa Claus doesn't exist either?). But thankfully, the news gets better: their true mother died giving birth to them (guilt trip ... guilt trip!) and the Eckbergs decided to adopt the men and bring them up in a proper family (no doubt so they should shatter their lives with this tale on their 21st birthday). But hey: it made everyone forget about the Fight going on outside the theatre, right?

Taxi for Two #

Released 9/2/1928

Description: Dan Doolittle is a terrible schmuck whose large talk usually gets him into trouble. After he is fired from his plumbing job, he saves Dolly Davis, who, grateful, promises to receive him a job at the company where she works, Owl Taxi, which is owned by her father. That job is as the jack-of-all-trades in the garage, under the supervision of the garage foreman, whose job he expects to have within the week. But Dan becomes the bane of the foreman's existence, in part because Dan would rather spend his time with Dolly to who he is attracted. But after Dan is asked by the boss to drive Dolly to the taxi depot, Dan believes he can create his millions instead by purchasing a cab and starting his own taxi company. Interactions with Dolly's visiting brother - a hosiery salesman - who Dan mistakenly believes is Dolly's boyfriend, a pair of inflatable legs, and an mad foreman who was fired because of Dan's mistakes in the garage lead to one misadventure after other for Dan.

Rebecca's Daughters Reviews:

The original screenplay for this movie was written by Dylan Thomas, and this ver by Karl Francis (a welshman himself) is appropriately absurd. The element of cross-dressing (not transvestism) involved earned the movie a '15' certificate in the UK, perhaps not warranted by any another aspect of it.Although based on real historical events, the true poverty and desperation of the period in which the movie is set have been removed, and replaced with the standard characterisation of the Welsh as being unquestioningly religious, and given to mordant humour.As can be imagined, a plot which involves boys dressing up as girls gives plenty of occasions for ribaldry. Peter O'Toole is gloriously over-the-top as a drunken Lord, Simon Dormandy is a buffoonish cavalry officer, and the characters played by Dafydd Hywel, Sue Roderick, Huw Ceredig and even Joely Richardson have some great earthy witticisms to deliver.The welsh countryside in which the scenes were shot gives a great light feel to the film, although it doesn't rain as much as ought to be expected; some local stately homes and buildings (such as Atlantic College) are impressive in the indoor sequences.A great evening's fun to watch.


This magnificent comic movie centres around the Welsh rebellions vs the iniquitous toll gate trusts and in particular on the exploits of a latter day cross-dressing Robin Hood in the form of Rebecca. The plot is standard fair, the terrible (Welsh) standing up to the evil rich (English), in this particular situation over the trouble of the toll streets which are bleeding the folks dry while the toll gate owners receive fat and rich on their misery. What makes this exceptional movie stand out, is the wonderfully paced, witticism-strewn dialogue, the fabulous characters and the nice acting. Two performances in particular demand praise: Joely Richardson as the somewhat contrary Rhiannon manages to be both cutely sexy and disarmingly hilarious in equal measure and Peter O'Toole is superb as the corrupt magistrate/landlord King Sarn, each debauched overblown speech and bon mot being an absolute comic delight, to be quoted advertisement nausea. An absolute gotta see movie that I just hope makes it to DVD.
