Re: GreyFriar's Bobby on DVD

Thank you, Helen

This film is in my list, but as it is relatively new, I will wait for a little to see if they throw DVD also in Portuguese. But I won't wait for a long time..

Re: GreyFriar's Bobby on DVD

I can't wait to see this one I saw the original when I was little, wound up crying buckets, Or course I loose it after the first two bars of born free when that film is on. Animal movies really get to me. The discription of Mr Lee performance sounds wonderful should be a great film. kaity

Re: GreyFriar's Bobby on DVD

Hello everyone,

Wonderful news, Helen! I'm really pleased that "our American cousins", and others across the Atlantic will soon be able to watch this film. I'm sure you will all enjoy it. It's a great film, suitable for all the family, and really one of the best new films to have come out for a long time. Happy viewing, everyone! Take care and God bless:

Warmest regards,

Andrés

Re: GreyFriar's Bobby on DVD

Finally I had opportunity to see the film yesterday the night. I liked the history a lot, of the scenery, of the characters, of the dog (soft) and, Mr. Lee was splendid in his character. Congratulations Mr. Lee.
Great film!

Re: GreyFriar's Bobby on DVD

I haven't seen this version yet.... partly because I know the story very well, and remember seeing the original many years ago, being an animal lover, and a coward, I just know I will be blubbing by the end. Any sad story involving animals, especially a shaggy dog story, is bound to set me off.
Maybe I will pluck up the courage and buy the DVD soon.
All the best everyone.

Re: GreyFriar's Bobby on DVD

Thanks for all the info Helen I have been thiking of watching this movie. But my reasons our the same as Steves. Even though I know the story very well. Since I was little. But I must admit knowing that. Mr. Lee is in it does make it sound really good. The story is great but just way to sad for me.

Me too, Steve. I'm exactly the same. I even get upset when King Kong falls off the Empire State building!

Re: GreyFriar's Bobby on DVD

I don't know if I'll ever get around to seeing this version. Being a dog owner it's just too sad.Anytime I'm in Edinburgh I've managed to steer clear of the statue of Bobby for the same reason.
Pathetic I know !

Re: GreyFriar's Bobby on DVD

Hey, Stuart... King Kong is one of my all time top ten films (The Original). I do have Peter Jackson's remake on dvd, which I think is excellent and much more sympathetic to Kong. I think that his realisation of Kong on screen, emotionally and physically, is superb, and I too, always have a tear in my eye at the end.
I reckon I'm turning into a right soppy old so'n'so.
I'm going to bite the bullet now, and send for "Greyfriers Bobby" on dvd. I'll have to add it to my Christopher Lee collection.
All the best to all
Steve.

Re: GreyFriar's Bobby on DVD

I haven't seen this film yet. But when the story is so sad, I would need more than one handkerchief during watching. Thanks for the warning. Nevertheless I put it on my list.

Re: GreyFriar's Bobby on DVD

Well... I plucked up the courage... and watched Greyfriers Bobby on dvd this very night. (Sunday). I felt It took a bit of time to get going, but as it progressed, I did enjoy it, and yes... particular scenes, did bring a lump to my throat. And the appearance of Mr Lee was certainly worth waiting for.... the build up to the appearance of his character, was very effective, I thought.
All the best to all.
