This Day In Film: September 13
by Nicholas Robinson
When I was a child I read a lot of books. I still do but now instead of fiction I read medical textbooks *sigh*. My point is though, that I read and one of my favourite authors of children’s books, is Roald Dahl. I must have read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at least once a week. Quite a few of his books have been adapted to film and he has written a couple screenplays himself. Born this day in 1916, his works have appeared on the big screen for over half a century! His works (relating to film) include Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Matilda and (quite surprisingly I might add) You Only Live Twice.
Here are trailers for some of his works:
