What a treat. I noticed that Enchanted April was on TV at the crack of dawn this morning, so I thought I'd treat myself to five minutes on iPlayer with a cup of tea and a bacon butty ... and it turned out to be this 1935 version, which I've never seen before.  On iPlayer for one week only - you'd never guess from the website because the BBC is flagging up the 1991 remake.


Sixty minutes and three cups of tea later ... the bacon burned to a crisp but the film was a delight.

I will resist because I want to make it my April read. Then I might try a screen version.

This is one of my very favourite films, a real treat.

I didn't even know there was an earlier version - one of my favourite films - especially watching it on a grey winters day.

It's worth watching, just for the wonderful voices, Sue.

Margaret, like Elaine, I didn't realise there was a b/w version. I was thrilled when it started.

Perhaps the local library might have it in store, thanks for the tip Mary (and too bad about the bacon!)

That sounds like a perfect hour or so on a dark dreary February day.

You might be lucky, Noelle. It's not on YouTube, though, which is often good for those old films.

Perfect timing for it, Gina.

A treat for me later.
