Reds (1981)

As one of you has noticed - the Russian Revolution has pretty much been ignored by Hollywood - it's probably for the best - it would be shit and besides I expect the filmmakers are probably worried that they might be blacklisted in some future witch-hunt but there is one notable exception - Warren Beatty's John Reed biopic calleds Reds. Watch the trailer - it certainly looks more exciting than I remember it but it was a good film and if you like Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton get a copy. John Reed wrote the classic 'Ten Days that Shook the World'. We actually had a song called that in the old Animals and Men days - before this movie came out I hasten to add - didn't record it though - anyone remember it? (Sue just said she does remember it - but not the words)
