Wiegrefe: “The Compleat Wrks of Wnstn Chrchl (Abridged)”

The Compleat Wrks (Abridged) by Klaus Wiegrefe

Some things on the web live a long time. “How Win­ston Churchill Stopped the Nazis” by Klaus Wiegrefe was pub­lished ten years ago, but we still get queries about it. This review is there­fore repub­lished for your amuse­ment or forgiveness.

This nine-part arti­cle is odd­ly remind­ful  of “The Com­pleat Wrks of Wilm Shk­spr (Abridged).” In that work, three actors cri­tique all of Shakespeare’s works in a cou­ple of hours.

Remembering Lee Remick as Lady Randolph Churchill

Lee Remick 1935-1991

May 2021 marks thir­ty years since we lost dear Lee Remick. She was the accom­plished actress who brought Win­ston Churchill’s moth­er vivid­ly to the screen.

One of the finest-ever Churchill films,  Jen­nie: Lady Ran­dolph Churchill, is avail­able on CD. It was orig­i­nal­ly a tele­vi­sion doc­u­men­tary, “The Life and Loves of Jen­nie Churchill,” broad­cast on ITV in Britain and PBS in the USA in 1974. Co-star­ring with Remick were Ronald Pick­up as Lord Ran­dolph Churchill and War­ren Clarke as young Winston.
