naomi: p.s. Also, whatever you do, don't miss 'Judy' on Netflix :o)
Question Author
Khandro, I think I read something somewhere about Judy Garland. Is that it?
Yes, stunning performance by Reneé Zellweger
But I must be careful what I recommend as German Netflix isn't always quite the same as other countries
Question Author
Yes, I remember now. It was the one with Reneé Zellweger. I like her. Thanks for the reminder, Khandro.

I watched the rest last night and with Mrs Danvers meeting her end by entirely different means and the ever-mousey Mrs de Winter transformed into some sort of super heroine I think it fair to say that the makers of this programme lost the plot.
Naomi // with Mrs Danvers meeting her end by entirely different means //

In the book Mrs Danvers is not presumed dead therefore did not 'meet her fate'. Danvers is presumed alive after the fire. The unnamed narrator ( Mrs de Winter) wonders “what Danvers is doing now” in the book’s opening chapters.
Question Author
Yes, you're right, APG... I'd forgotten that. The jumping off the cliff scene was even more of an abuse of poetic license then.
In the book is Danvers assumed to have died in the Manderlay house fire then and not by jumping off the sea wall as in the Netflix adaptation?
sorry Naomi. Cross posts.
Written books and movies (i.e. literature and film) are different art forms with different aims and methods. A good novel could be the basis of a dire film; a dire novel could be made into a good film.
Question Author
I was thinking she'd died in the fire, Retro - it's a long time since I read the book - but as APG reminded me, she didn't. The Netflix production had her ending it all by jumping into the sea.
Thanks Naomi.As previously stated I have neither read the book or watched the original so I can't compare plots and screen play differences. I very much enjoyed the Netflix version though. My sort of era and location. It reminded me a bit of A Horseman Riding By . Delderfield
Naomi 17.11 yes absolutely agree.
Question Author
The old Laurence Olivier/Joan Fontaine version is very good, Retro. It catches the atmosphere far more than this one did. I don't know if it's available on television - but it would be worth having a look.
Thank You. I will keep my eye open.
Question Author
Khandro, if you're still looking in, 'Judy' isn't available here. :o(
Question Author
Khandro, good news! Judy is on Sky. I’m recording it. Yeahhhh! :o)
n. Can you get, The Queen's Gambit ? Just finished it tonight - full marks!
Question Author
Yes, I can get that, Khandro. Thanks for the recommendation.
It's not a recommendation naomi, I insist that you watch it !

You will thank me :o)
