Movie Reviews

Set 2 is a great set with great films
Sarah A. Kincaid | De Soto, MO USA | 01/05/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've seen all the movies in this set except for the man who cried, I haven't gotten to watch that one yet. I started watching Catherine Cookson films as a teenager because my grandma watched them all the time. I fell in love with them. As depressing as her films can be (it seems there is always a tragedy in her films) the ending is always good. In this set the Gambling Man is my favorite, I suggest you watch it first. I also own set 1. Set 1 has The Wingless Bird, The Fifteen Streets, The Moth, and the Rag Nymph. Also a wonderful set to add to your collection. I bought The Girl separately. There are two more movies that I bought that are sold as a set and they are The Black Velvet Gown and The Black Candle. Both of those movies are wonderful, especially the Black Velvet Gown. It is a wonderful love story.These films are great on DVD, the picture is nice and clear and the sound is really good. A good buy!"
Best Historical Movies I have Seen

(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you love historical romance and accurate history you can't go wrong with this set. Nobody does history like BBC and they stick close to Ms. Cookson's story line too."
Great Catherine Cookson Collection
Rain Lily | Guam, USA | 06/22/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I truly enjoy all of Catherine Cookson's made for TV movies, the storylines, locales, costumes and actors make for great TV, even if somewhat gritty, which could have been left out of a perfectly good story"

"The acting is superb and the sets are wonderful. You really get a feel for the time that Catherine Cookson is writing about."
