Book Vs Movie (Replay)
“Cold Comfort Farm”
We have NO idea why it took us so long to finally tackle this charming book and movie–but we are so grateful to the listeners for suggesting this idea to us! The story of 19-year-old Flora Poste (recently orphaned) who comes to Cold Comfort Farm with a pittance of an inheritance who has the gift of helping people achieve their dreams.
In this story, we meet Flora, the unique Strakadder family, Aunt Ada Doom, Mary Smiling, Adam Lambsbreath as she guides them to forget about “something nasty in the woodshed” and enjoy their lives at Cold Comfort Farm.
In this ep the Margos discuss :
- The interesting life story of author Stella Gibson who wrote over 22 novels and books of poetry but Cold Comfort Farm remained her one and only hit.
- The social satire of the time (writing about living on farms in England was all the rage in England in the 20s and 30s)
- Kate Beckinsale’s incandescent performance
- The cast of the movie including Joanna Lumley, Stephen Fry, Eileen Atkins, Rufus Sewell and Sir Ian McKellen
- Plus, movie trivia and more!
- Cold Comfort Farm trailer
- Seth Starkadder becomes a movie star
- Mr. My Bug (Stephen Fry) attempting to woo Flora Poste
- Ian McKellan preaching “No butter in hell!”
- Outro Music “Music from Cold Comfort Farm” Robert Lockhart
