Re: Movie “A Gift Horse” Great Movie!
Loved the book (back in the 1960s) and The Gift Horse movie. I recall that some of Forester's novel were serialized in The Saturday Evening Post. Greyhound movie is overblown and too hyperactive for me.
Concerns the transfer of the 50 4 piper destroyers to the Brits in 1940 and the ultimate destination of one DD. I must say I really did enjoyed the movie. Acting, the relationships between characters and plot was excellent. Without need for special effects I thought it surpassed Greyhound ( The Good Shepherd book was better) .
There is even a hull painting scene and some good shots of a 4 piper. On Amazon Prime.
