    Turman found a copy of The Graduate, and thought highly enough of the story that he made a movie he considered to be 90-percent faithful to the book.

    But Turman and director Mike Nichols made one key adaptation, changing the Braddocks from WASP-y blonde characters into a dark-haired, more ethnic-looking family.

    Yeah, if they had just left the Anglo-Saxons alone, I reckon us Gaels could have took care of them

    ... and the whole world would speak Welsh as an international language...

    The Bayeux tapestry is fantastic, I remember first seeing it in the opening credits of the 1990 Robin Hood starring ugh Kevin Costner and Morgan Freeman as the Moor!!! ( Moors weren't black and Robin Hood didn't speak with an American accent! GRR ).

    LOL! What a frightening thought. A world full of Taffys!

    Well don't worry, we won't raid Wales or Brittany then

    I wonder, what will you call England once you re-take it? What was it's name before the arrival of Angles ?

    ( It always used to piss me off when I read or see something about king Arthur, some movies, books and TV shows presented Arthur as king of England. :grr

    LOL!
    Yeah, I know. It's a bit misleading that. Still, at least Tolkein knew better when he moaned that even the Arthurian legends belonged to the soil of England, but not to the English people. In fact, the historical Arthur was likely a Romano-Briton (Romanised Brythonic Celt) fighting against the invading Anglo-Saxons.

    As for what we will call the country after the Reconquista.....hmmm, I don't know actually. It was composed of various tribal kingdoms. Perhaps Albion would be suitable, or even Nua Eire (New Ireland).
    But , I get ahead of myself....

    Post Re: The Bayeux Tapestry

    If the Normans conquered England, why didn't they re-name the place?
    How could it continue to be called the Land of the Angles [i.e., English Saxons] when it was ruled by the Normans?
    Why didn't they call it New Normandy or something?
    Why are there beings at all, & why not rather nothing?

    They did enough harm by unleashing unto the world the hideous name 'Norman'!

    Especially hideous as the name of the director of clssic romantic comedies
    mr. Norman Jewison
