It's always the same. One sniff of summer - in this case, a few mildly warm days back in April - and I'm planning my holiday. And the way I plan? By watching movies.
John Schlesinger's 1967 rich interpretation of Thomas Hardy's literary classic 'Far From The Madding Crowd,' with Julie Christie, Alan Bates, Peter Finch and Terence Stamp swept audiences along and is a hard act to follow.
