  2. He should have a stamp. I hope there will be one for him.
    I may have seen "The last time I saw Paris," if I did it would be the only movie of his I saw. I have been to a lot of the places named in his titles, starting with "The White Cliffs of Dover." I may list them on my blog if I decide to push his petition.

    2. The Brigadoon, we saw and walked across the bridge in Ayrshire, Scotland.
      Wikipedia says: Brigadoon (disambiguation). The Brig o' Doon, sometimes called the Auld Brig or Old Bridge of Doon is a late medieval bridge in Ayrshire.
      Ayrshire cattle originated there and the poet Robert Burns was born there, between Ayr and Doon. We visited his birthplace, also saw a lot of Red Ayrshire cattle.

  3. I have to admit that I'm not familiar with any of his movies.
