Pageant of Birmingham - 1938
British WWII propaganda movies to view and download The British Council has posted a fabulous trove of CC-licensed, downloadable "cultural propaganda" videos commissioned during WWII to "refute the idea that ours was a country stuck in the past." During the 1940s, the British Council was an enthusiastic commissioner of documentary films. Over 120 films were produced as 'cultural propaganda' to counteract anything the Nazis might throw out and to refute the idea that ours was a country stuck in the past. These films were designed to showcase Britain to the rest of the world, at a time when Britain itself was under attack.

"Las novelas tienen un único tema, que es el tema del Quijote... la realidad y la ilusión de un cambio, que es lo que mueve a los personajes; trátese de asesinar a un profesor de literatura o de medrar socialmente. En realidad, creo yo... el único tema de la novela es el contraste entre realidad y sueño -y deseo- que es lo que pone en marcha todas las acciones". "[Un clásico] es un libro que sigue vendiéndose en el mercado después de ser novedad". Francisco Rico. En el presente capítulo de "Nostromo", Ignacio Vidal-Folch entrevista a Francisco Rico, filólogo español conocido, entre otras obras, por sus ediciones de Don Quijote de la Mancha, del Lazarillo de Tormes, y de la Historia y crítica de la literatura española.

Alejandro Jodorowsky's never-made adaptation of Dune is getting a documentary While we're on the topic of Dalí, news has come out of the Cannes Festival that director Frank Pavich is making a documentary titled Jodorowsky's Dune that delves into the history of Alejandro Jodorowsky's doomed adaptation of Frank Herbert's novel. Before the 1974-1976 project went belly up, Jodorowsky's production team for Dune was perhaps the most insane who's who in film history. Moebius and H.R. Giger were brought on to do production designs, Alien writer Dan O'Bannon was in charge of special effects, Pink Floyd was slated to do the soundtrack, and the cast included Mick Jagger, Orson Welles, David Carradine, and Hervé Villechaize (Tattoo from Fantasy Island).
