This Is Cinerama - West Yorkshire Music People Talk About Their Favourite Movies

Along with any number of brothers, sisters and associates William Sanderson's Le Tournoi impress with thoughtful and curiously amusing songs described by some as Modern Folk, others as Joy Division-esque and most as impressive.

William's three favourite movies

Dolemite Honky destroying lover man, overweight and not very good at kung-fu.

With lines like "if you ever see a ghost, cut the motherfucker". This film is terrible. Ha Ha. For the last forty minutes of this film it's impossible to know exactly what's going on.

Casablanca This film is quite the opposite of Dolemite, in the sense that it's really good.

Dolemite 2: The Human Tornado For the same reasons as number one. This one features the "unforgettable apple scene" where Dolemite, upon arriving in California buys an apple and through the medium of voice over we are allowed into the mind of Dolemite to see what he's thinking:

I hope the girls in California are as good as this apple

Never has a single sentence summed up someone so perfectly before (I'm violently exaggerating).

William in the movies

I empathise with the "Hamburger Pimp" from the first Dolemite. He died before we ever got to know him.

I also have a lot of empathy for James Bond. That's not true. I have a lot of time for Chris in the Sopranos. That most definitely is true.

William Sanderson: The bio-pic

It would be an art house film where not a great deal of things happen, probably called "That Didn't Happen, Did It?"

My dog Meg could play herself, she's acted before and she's pretty good. I'd like to be all CGI apart from my mouth. Charles Bronson to direct through the medium of Ouija board.
