Films My Mum Recorded For Me Off The Telly

I was away at school a lot during my teens and my mum would set the video recorder for things she thought her absent prodigy would enjoy on his return to the family bosom. These are the highlights I can recall. The 16 year old me laughed himself off the sofa watching Blazing Saddles and at least two of my all time favourites are on this list - both of which she insisted I watch.

  • The Sting
  • Blazing Saddles
  • Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid
  • Withnail & I
  • Bagdad Cafe
  • The Long Goodbye
  • Capricorn One
  • Little Big Man
  • The Fearless Vampire Killers
  • The Man with Two Brains
