The FULL movie, is available, for FREE,
on YouTube.


Watched in on Amazon Prime a few days ago. Every few weeks, when I have 5-minutes to spare, I browse through the Prime movie library to see what is new.

The description for this movie caught my eye.

It was a very touching and moving movie. A few storyline themes that seem farfetched BUT a great story for today’s troubled times.

IF life really could be this simple and neat.

Heartwarming. Definitely worth watching.

Full movie, supposedly, available on YouTube (see above).

The Infamous ‘Caligula’ Became The 3rd Roman Emperor This Day 1,980 Years Ago — March 18, 37 AD.

‘Caligula’ was a nickname — meaning ‘little (soldier’s) boot’. His real name was Gaius Julius Caesar Germanicus. He was well connected at birth. Hence his ascendency.

He was only emperor for 3 years and 10 months. He has assassinated when just 28 years old.

He has been described as being crazy.

The blood seen dripping from his eyes is to symbolize his deadly vision for Rome and the Empire.

Beyond STRANGE that this was NOT displayed in the U.K.

Did Google think that it was between Australia and India?

Shouldn’t they have Googled it?

And what is it with the GREEN bat?

They did, however, get the color spot on with the other bat.

Amazon’s 2015 Movie, ‘The Dressmaker’, Set In Australia, Is Engaging And Sometimes V. Funny.

The Trailer on YouTube.


Given I am an Amazon Prime member I get regular e-mails with Prime Movie recommendations.

This movie was in one of those e-mails last week. I added it to my Watchlist.

Being set in Australia and the 1950s time period made me think that it might be along the lines of “A Place To Call Home” — a series that we all really got hooked on.

I was right. Definite similarities.

Not a bad movie at all; at all. Actually quite a GOOD movie.

Engrossing story line. Some hilarious parts. Easy on the eye.

You will like it. Promise.
