Hi Ziners, Not a movie, but the 1970's television series "Poldark", piqued our interest in Cornwall, England. We finally went in the 1990's and marvelled at the rough beauty of the countryside. It was fun to see road signs that mark villages and towns of the story and the craggy cliffs where, over centuries, the townspeople salvaged wrecks washed ashore by storms. Though a fictional account of two families, it was clearly based on historical events. Last year I read all nine volumes of Poldark so it was a revisit for me.

We also visited the Minack Theatre, Land's End, walked the countryside and stayed in lovely towns (Penzance was a disappointment though). St. Ives is a pretty town with the 700 year old Sloop Inn pub and the St. Ives Tate - quite a contrast.

While in Cornwall, we also discovered that Daphne Du Maurier's books (and the movies based on them) were set in the area. A reason to return. Lucy, Toronto
