The Red Badge of Courage is a 1951 war film made by MGM and directed by John Huston. It was adapted from Stephen Crane’s 1895 novel of the same name. Taking place during the American Civil War, the story is about a young private of the Union Army, Henry Fleming, who flees from the field of battle. Overcome with shame, he longs for a wound, a “red badge of courage,” to counteract his cowardice. When his regiment once again faces the enemy, Henry acts as standard-bearer.

La Vie en rose – Edith Piaf

This song was written by Edith Piaf in 1945. It is a song of love and hope. Here she is during a live performance in 1954. It is respectfully dedicated to all those caught up in the recent dreadful atrocity in Nice.  

Hold me close and hold me fast
This magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose

When you kiss me heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose.

When you press me to your heart
I’m in a world apart
A world where roses bloom

And when you speak, angels sing from above
Everyday words seem to turn into love songs

Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be la vie en rose.

Bedtime Stories …

Bedtime Stories …

The 1951 Club is not a political animal.

But … there are limits.

Once upon a time there was a referendum …

and Boris was appointed foreign secretary. The End.
