A Canterbury Tale: Memories of a Classic Wartime Movie
I'm not sure why, but the older I get, the more the Powell and Pressburger film A Canterbury Tale means to me.
Certainly it is unusual in being a work of English mysticism. We stolid English usually prefer to leave that sort of thing to the Celts.
I knew that a book had been written about the making of the film a few years ago. When I asked about it in The Chaucer Bookshop, they did not let me down.
