    Anglophiles?

    "A Canterbury Tale", a 1944 British movie of four people toward the end of the War, on a trip to Canterbury Cathedral. Their story loosely parallels one of the stories of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.


    https://www.theguardian.com/film/fil...anterbury-tale

    Lots of scenes of WW2 English village life, including farming, blacksmith, wood working, and pubs.

    Also interesting, in the "prologue", a 14th century man on horseback releases a falcon into the air. As it circles upward, it turns into a Spitfire; reminds me of the "bone into space station" scene in 2001. As the Spitfire flies toward us, we see barrage balloons in the sky over Canterbury Cathedral.



    I rented it from Netflix, but it's also on YouTube, etc.

    I guess I'm an Anglophile! Partly due to British ancestry, plus the fact that I (we) love the country and people!

    Brings back memories of school.

    We did The Canterbury Tales in Old English.
