Yes, it's a wonderful movie with Anne Bancroft as Helene Hanff and Anthony Hopkins as Frank Doel. I saw the movie first and then bought the book.

And they were equally good? You know how that goes sometimes!

It was a long time ago that I saw the movie, so I'm a bit fuzzy about details, but I enjoyed it enough to seek out the book. I tend to prefer books anyway.

Hello ladies - not sure if this is the right place to mention this but DITHOT or Liz will make sure things are kosher so here goes - over at audible.com right now SHANTARAM is on sale for $4.95 (oh yes - that's an audible version of G.D. Roberts epic) - not sure if its ever going to make it to the screen but for those of you who like to add it to your Depp related reading / listening collection its a bargain - I know its not currently on the ONBC radar and we're all thinking :rango2: but for five dollars its worth a trip over to audible (sale until March 15th) even with :rango1: opening tomorrow and everyone's extra pennies dedicated to movie tickets - FYI - lizbet

Yep! It is a great deal! Thanks, lizbet! I got it... listened to a sample and love the Australian accent of the reader! :-)
The edge … there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. HST
