Elizabeth Young , C. Aubrey Smith This is a delightful romantic drama about the 17th-century Swedish monarch, who, dressed in men's clothes, finds herself sharing a room in a remote village inn with a handsome Spanish nobleman. It was an ideal vehicle for Garbo, and gave John Gilbert -her leading man of the silent era - a chance to show that he could still excel as a romantic hero.

The town motto of Kirkintilloch, Strathclyde, Scotland, might be translated as ' Proceed with Caution, but Proceed!'. This is precisely what has happened in the setting up of Schools Councils as managing bodies of Scottish schools. The film looks at this new involvement, by right, of parents, teachers and pupils and members of the community, and asks the question ' just how much control' do these new bodies have?

In this fine adaptation of B. Tra ven's novel, Humphrey BQgart gives a memorable performance as the most bitter of a trio of itinerant Americans caught up in the Mexican gold rush. But it was Walter Huston , the director's father, who stole the film-and won an Oscar -in the part of the grizzled prospector whose predictions come true when the trio strike it rich.

A series of five films about Play 3: Work and Play
Are work and play as different as we think? What are the similarities and connections between what we do at paid ' work and what we do in ' free ' time? How important is class - and how do men and women differ in their attitudes to play and work. Who goes to bingo, who goes to the match? And who's doing the housework and who's in tie pub? To what extent can play, or leisure, be a meaningful replacement for work?
We talk to many people: from those whose work is the study of play to those whose work is the making of things for others to play with. The pinball and video production lines of Chicago and the tennis ball and racket factories of South Yorkshire are now multinational industries for multinational players.
