Yep. Save yourself some breath of life, folks. FFWD to this scene and then zap it.

Haven't read the Rotten Tomatoes review on the movie-

Saturday Night And Sunday Morning

Though I'm sure it has a bit more sophisticated love triangle. Ha.

A rebellious, hard-living factory worker juggles relationships with two women, one of whom is married to another man but pregnant with his child.

Scenes filmed at the Raleigh factory. Starring Albert Finney, made in 1960.

Albert died just 4 days ago, RIP. Always a favourite of mine.

He should have won an Academy award for The Dresser, superb in Millers Crossing, turned down a knighthood from the Queen stating that it's that sort of thing that's created too many problems for England. (paraphrased) Amazing thespian to boot, he certainly had the voice.

Thanks for reminding me of the name of this Finney movie. It's from that period when "serious" British movies were almost entirely black and white downers, but I still like it. As for the movie subject of this thread, the principals obviously saw the Umbrellas of Cherbourg and the Young Girls of Rochefort and said I bet I can do that too. More power to them.

Take a look at this charming movie (A Boy, A Girl and a Bike) from 1949 -

The title sounds quite suggestive. But given the year it was made, I doubt it will fully deliver.

Now that's one heck of an opening scene. A Bentley forces a group of cyclist to ditch!

"Low seat advisory" for the frequent rear projection simulated riding scenes. May trigger some viewers who are groin injury patients. Also, there should be a surgeon general's warning on the bike racing team meeting scene, where everyone is smoking cigarettes (?!).

Now we know what a bicycle-based economy would look like. These people's entire lives seem to revolve around their bikes. And I can only understand only about half of what they are saying, unfortunately.

Thanks for sharing this one Cranky... I didn't think I had ever watched it, so I tuned into it on a cold wintery evening this week. I'm pretty sure I'd seen at least a portion of this movie before (don't know where). Not much bicycle content, but an interesting watch, none-the-less. It learned me about the movie definition of a "kitchen sink drama", as someone mentioned that term in their comment post of the you tube site. It's a great slice of what it might have been like to work and live within the community surrounding the blue collar, Raleigh building, city of Nottingham, bitd.

Thanks for sharing a link to this movie John.... I thoroughly enjoyed it. It seems strange that such a popular past time as bicycling was in that period of England's history, that more movies weren't created around the sport of bicycling.

I agree with your sentiment, I've a few movies on DVD, but if I find any more online I'll post the link.
