Welcome to Screen One’s YouTube series, where we set sail for a cinematic journey like no other. Join us as we cast away into the vast ocean of cinema and explore the celluloid treasures that would be our companions on a deserted island. In “Desert Island Movies,” we delve into the films that captivate our hearts, ignite our imaginations, and make us ponder life’s myriad facets. From timeless classics to hidden gems, each episode is a celebration of storytelling mastery and the enduring power of film. So grab your popcorn and embark with us on this adventure to uncover the movies that we simply can’t live without.
Joining us on this edition with star of stage and screen plus author, Ray Shell who had the role of the original Rusty in the London production of Starlight Express and later went on to become Poppa in the Sam show, makes his way to our island to tell us about his 3 movies choices and soundtrack and discusses along the way the origins of his new musical Starboy, his books (Carolina Red and Iced) and of course Starlight Express.
