There was a land of Cavaliers and Cotton Fields called the Old South...Here in this pretty world Gallantry took its last bow. Here was the last ever to be seen of Knights and their Ladies Fair. Look for it only in books, for it is no more than a dream remembered. A Civilization gone with the wind.
It makes me so sad that Cornerhouse (an independent cinema and favourite haunt of mine in Manchester) is moving to a new state-of-the-art building down the road. Watching 'It's a Wonderful Life' in their old-fashioned main screen, then coming out into the city streets is one of the most happy and unforgettable moments of my life.
