New Order song titles from films

I haven’t seen all of them (* means I’ve seen). Neither has Bernard, I bet. I think he just had an old copy of Halliwell’s in the rehearsal room…

Ceremony (Nagisa Oshima, 1971)
In A Lonely Place (Nicholas Ray, 1950) *
Temptation (Irving Pichel, 1946)
Cries And Whispers (Ingmar Bergman, 1972) *
Thieves Like Us (Robert Altman, 1974) *
Age Of Consent (Michael Powell, 1969) *
Ecstasy (Gustav Machaty, 1933)
Also (possibly) [On] The Beach (Stanley Kramer, 1959) *
Sunrise (F W Murnau, 1927) *
[Scarface: The] Shame Of The Nation (Howard Hawks, 1932) *
Vanishing Point (Richard C Sarafian, 1971)

And then – around 1990 – they moved to a new, hopefully better rehearsal room, or they had their own studio, and Halliwell’s was left behind or forgotten…

(Inspired by Age Of Consent, 1969 version, being on Talking Pictures…
NB: the song is MUCH BETTER.

I had a stroke on July 26th, 2013. I was a screenwriter. Don’t do that anymore. But have found another way to write.
