    That will do, I think.
    One by one, over the months, the other bulbs burn out, and are gone. The first few of these hit Byron hard. He's still a new arrival, still hasn't accepted his immortality. But on through the burning hours he starts to learn about the transience of others: learns that loving them while they're here becomes easier, and also more intenseóto love as if each design-hour will be the last.

    I think you mean dr Zhivago.

    Was Charade the movie with the British actor Cary Grant and the Belgian-British wartime spy Audrey Hepburn?

    If so I saw the piece in Hollyhead in 1964.
    I liked it a lot.
    I came from Dublin and I was on my way to Caernarvon.
    Unfortunately the last bus from Hollyhead to Caernarvon had left a minute before my arrival.
    I entered the sole movie house of Hollyhead to see the late night show.
    It was the Charade?
    7=4+3. 12th of August. 43 years to the day.

    A Charade is not the puzzle. It is the joke in the puzzle.
    In the medieval Spain the Charro was the one who could speak the unspeakable and yet save his head.
    In the Spanish Netherlands the Charro became the Hofnar (=the joker in the Court).
    A fool may be clever; alas since he is a fool he is not punishable.
    Hence the vocation of the toothsayer.

    Lawrence of Arabia I saw in Caernarvon. It had an excellent cast and the film remained true to the original narrative of the Seven Pillars of Wisdom.

    After the WWI ended the advice of Lawrence was not put into effect.
    The victors divided the Arab land irrespective of the natural boundary and irrespective of the tribe.
    Hence the Gulf wars, the dictatorships, the squeeze on oil and the terror we experience today.

    The ecological history of Texas is different. The area was only once or twice a semi tropical forest.
    Hence the oil reserves are limited.

    Giant is about the discovery of the black gold in Texas.
    Again the narrative follows the historical sequence.
    It was the first major film in Hollywood to observe the race problem and the related issue of the antagonism between the generations.

    Does intuitive perception apprehend the sequence of events?
    Or is the effect simultaneous with the cause?

    I have not seen the other movies.
    Maybe I should post order.
    What do you think?
