Most of all, hope lies behind the soundproof glass, where human beings, continue to endeavour at living a meaningful life ...

Harry Crawford

There was so much potential here. The central narrative - finding Dory's parents - was unavoidable. Any scriptwriter, nay, your neighbour or cat would have known this was the right step to take.

On this day in 2014, my husband Tim and I exited the LAX immigration offices for the first time as US residents.

In my opinion there is another actor, now dead unfortunately, who would have certainly made a brilliant Bond had he been young enough at the time, and that was Cary Grant. Without doubt Grant had the looks, acting talent, and presence, to have made the role his own.
