Nautical theme for the Palais 'classic movie session' this coming Sunday night (7pm).  Quoting from the advertisement:

'This Sunday’s classic film is the action charged  Billy Budd. This 1962 film has it all, men, mutiny, muscle and mayhem, one for the boys. Taken from the novella “Billy Budd Sailor” by the great writer Herman Melville (wrote Moby Dick, Miller died and it was left up to his missus to finish the novel….women’s work never done). Scripted, directed and starring Peter Ustinov as the shouty ship’s captain, Robert Ryan, sadistic master D’arms and Illya Kuryakin….sorry, I mean David McCallum (who apparently while playing Kuryakin in “The Man From U.N.C.L.E” TV series, received more fan mail than any other actor in the history of MGM…..no surprises there).

Bring a plate and a gold coin to the Palais upstairs supper room.
