Hideaways holiday cottages publishes an article about Cornwall’s contribution to British film history

Love Story (1944), Rebecca (1940) and Jamaica Inn (1939) all feature in Hideaways holiday cottages’ article about Cornwall on the big and small screen.

I’m pleased to have contributed to the first part of the article, which focuses on Love Story. Think of the Cornish cliffs, with the elements blowing a gale, herring gulls crying and waves crashing onto the rugged shore below. Throw in Hubert Bath’s stirring Cornish Rhapsody, Margaret Lockwood’s dicky heart and Stewart Granger’s blindness, and you have an, admittedly sentimental, classic Gainsborough film.
