I remember watching this film when it came out at the cinema, soon after bought the 45 of "Arthur's Theme" by Christopher Cross.

The cast, the story, everything about "Arthur" was brilliant,...anyway anyone else remember seeing it at the cinema?..

I certainly did. I love this film and was quite annoyed at missing an excellent colour 16mm print a few years ago. Very funny film.

A good color 16mm print Tom would be great. I have never come across one out here, but its well suited to the 16mm format, as it was originally filmed in flat and not Scope.

Its another film that has got great repeat ability [Cool] I dont buy much in the way of films these days, but would certainly make the exception over Arthur. [Smile]

100% Graham, i cant stand Russel Brand anyway, to have him lined up to take the role was a joke. Sorry, only my opinion. Anyone who saw him on Question time will understand why i think the guys a D**K.

My wife and I saw it in the theater when it came out and loved it. A comedy that is actually funny and with heart is always well worth watching.
