Colonel Kirke - do not hiss the villain


The Duke of Monmouth

Kirke's Lambs
Got my copy of this and thought I'd share a few grabs from the credit sequence. I got my copy here post free - it's the cheapest I've seen it. I was 12 in 72 and I really enjoyed this had the novelization which was the 70s equivalent of owning the video.
Monmouth Rebels
I don't usually get excited by DVDs but this series from 1972 has bewitched me as a sort of missing piece of my childhood's jigsaw - why I have always been obsessed with the Monmouth Rebellion.
