As for the "Second Front", the US only entered the European war on Hitler's declaration of war, and anyway, the Anglo-Canadian/Polish forces took the brunt of German armour and SS units.

It was available until 1984, when it was banned during the purge of the "video- nasties" like Driller Killer. Our local social club hired both it and Exorcist II - The Heretic from the local video store in 1982 for a horror evening. I suggest use a more accurate guide in future.

I hope the classic Jaws gets this treatment. Spielberg brought people back to the cinema from their TVs in the mid-70s. Jaws had mass family appeal and came 2 years before the phenomenal release of Star Wars.

I was pleasantly surprised. Often, screenplays lack subtlety and latch onto love/sex elments to gain "big bucks" at the box office. The Horse Whisperer, however, faithfully recreated the mood of the text.
