The Password is Courage

The Password is Courage is a 1962 black and white movie based on a 1954 World War II Memoir. Its the true story of Sergeant Major Charles Coward who was a senior British Officer in the prisoner of war camp Stalag VIII - B. Its a lighthearted film. This movie is on TCM tomorrow (Saturday) morning at 6:00 am EST. Sergeant Major Coward is played by gay actor Dirk Bogarde and Coporal Bill Pope is played by another gay actor Alfred Lynch who is a hottie. Alfred Lycnh picture attached. If you haven't seen this movie, its pretty funny and lots of eye candy.

West 11 (1963) is also a really good Alfred Lynch Movie, he also got his Partner the actor James Culliford a small part in it. They were together over 40 years and lived in Brighton.

James died in 2002, Alfred in 2003

I love old-time movie titles like this one, and (my all-time favorite) "Valiant is the Word for Carrie." (The Three Stooges parodied the latter by calling one of their short films "Violent is the Word for Curly").

Tunes of Glory 1960 starring Alec Guinness which I watched recently, also stars another gay British actor John Fraser. John Fraser wrote a book about his life called Close Up in 2004. He mentioned Dirk Bogarde and his secretary lover of 50 years Anthony Forwood and how Dirk was so closeted and afraid it would affect his career, despite his playing many gay roles. Actor John Fraser is 89 and living in Italy.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
