Main Characteristics of good Composition. A good style, as the late Fitzgerald Hall defines it in one of his posthumous letters, consists in saying in the most perspicuous and succinct way what one thoroughly understands, and saying it so naturally that no effort is apparent This extract mentions three of the qualities of good composition, viz. (1) Perspicuity, or saying in the most perspicuous war what one thoroughly understands;…
These six chapters are preceded by an initial chapter on the Figures of Speech, which have been discussed first, as they lie at the basis of all composition. It will be of great help to a beginner to know what they are and what use can be made of them for the purposes described in the subsequent chapters.

For the first time in nearly two decades of putting out an annual ski film, TGR’s lead segment belongs to a woman. But not only does Angel Collinson break into the boys club in Almost Ablaze, which premiered Saturday at a sold-out outdoor showing in Teton Village, Wyoming, she damn near tears down the walls. Collinson, the 24-year-old skier who grew up sharing a room with her brother, Johnny, in her parents’ employee housing unit at Snowbird, Utah, delivers a performance that undoubtedly seals her place as one of the best big mountain female skiers in the world.

Some like it Sexy is curiously watchable due to its rough hand held camera approach to filmmaking, endless attempts to wed nearly all the action with the title song (plus some surprising top 40 material) and many nostalgic London locales. There's even some low rent surrealism- most noteworthy is the way Peter's conquests are inter cut with scenes of meat being cut up, for some dubious un-pc symbolism. Fans of Hammer films will no doubt be aghast to find twin sisters Mary and Madeleine Collinson the stars of Twins of Evil in some fairly scandalous scenes. There's much kitsch value as well with the unavoidable mindbending LSD sequence and Winter's dedicated follower of fashion, rivaling Austin Powers in his choice of Carnaby Street fashions. The film wasn't released until two years after it was made, apparently in its original version it was not explicit enough and Winter had to shoot some crude `sexy' inserts using very obvious body doubles to ensure a sale..

Genre: Horror

In nineteenth century middle-Europe, orphaned teenage twins Maria and Frieda go to live with their uncle Gustav Weil, who heads the Brotherhood, a vigilante group trying to stamp out vampirism. But their methods are random and misplaced and the only result is a terrorised populace. The real threat lies with Count Karnstein, and although the twins seem outwardly to be identical, Frieda finds herself much more drawn than her sister to the Count's castle dominating the skyline.
