Such larks as never

It must have been my jaunt on the marshes, but I couldn't get one of my favourite films out of my mind. Not the whole film, but the first three or so minutes. The 1946 David Lean adaptation of Great Expectations, especially those first few minutes are probably some of the most atmospheric cinema minutes I know. Spine chilling for a young lad, poor old Pip - I dare not show it to my children......not just yet anyway.
