Splendour in the Grass…..

27 08 2016

Splendor in the Grass.Have just watched ‘Splendor in the Grass’ a film from 1961 and was totally mesmerised by it. The story, the way it was filmed and the subject matter seem to me to be very forward thinking for its time. It is, in my humble opinion, just one of those films that once watched could never be forgotten, and let’s face it, there aren’t too many of those around. Although, to be fair,  there have been a good few others throughout the years.

What though the radiance
which was once so bright
Be now for ever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass,
of glory in the flower,
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;

(Excerpt from William Wordsworth).
