Monday movie

I recently saw David Lean's 1946 version of Great Expectations and enjoyed it immensely. Direction, casting, performances, screenwriting, set design, everything is superbly done.

Here is the opening scene.

Even though sultry Jean Simmons played Estella, I think her performance was modeled on Vivien Leigh in Gone With the Wind. Lean is great in his unforgettable visual scenes and performances.

Just watched it again.
Wonderful film.
The photography is beautiful, especially the opening sequence.
They don't make them like this any more.
