3rd April 2023

The long Easter weekend is the perfect opportunity to watch old films while eating chocolate. We highly recommend Talking Pictures TV, a wonderful way to (re)discover C20 films, shorts, TV series and documentaries, and a kind of parallel world to Persephone Books. It sometimes screens films based on Persephone Books titles, such as They Were Sisters (1945) starring James Mason (above). He is a regular on TPTV with his beautifully modulated voice and ability to play dangerous charmers; today he is in The Night Has Eyes (1942).
