Some went camp leader and, wherever he went, we followed. to a caravan on Phillip Island. Some fortunate I got to see all the great wartime classics, from The kids had parents who took them to the Gold Coast. But Bridge on the River Kwai to The Great Escape. There’s we were the truly lucky ones: every school holiday my not a classic western I haven’t seen, and it was with some siblings and I went to Hollywood. sense of surprise and pride I realised only much later the After a luxurious lie in each day, one of us would immortal work of John Ford and Howard Hawks be dispatched to the milk bar to buy pies with was part of my early high school education.

Then and Bing Crosby Road movies. I loved Dean camp we’d hit the street and play until tea time. Martin and Jerry Lewis, still do. Somewhere leader There is a part of my childhood that in my unconscious I have filed away all the will forever be associated with the smiling, great melodramas of Douglas Sirk and the very mustachioed, avuncular presence of Ivan best Bible movies. It may have been the holidays, Hutchinson and his Midday Movies, and I am forever but even then I knew this was all very important stuff. grateful to him and his excellent taste for my early I remember we were all entranced, always.

This was a time when very few remember a single one of us ever jumping up and middle-class families had the money to take holidays declaring we were bored with a film and wanted to in the middle of the year as well as during summer, and watch something else instead. In my memory, when the if your parents worked then you were left to your own extravagant typescript announcing The End flashed up, devices with the local kids, the TV and your imagination we were all still sitting there, riveted. for company.

while away the holidays in front of the box, or the Xbox, so in that basic regard nothing has changed, but the difference that does fascinate me is that the personalisation of consumer entertainment means no one sits waiting to be told what they are going to see: the disc, the box set, the download is directly chosen and any element of random exposure is all but eliminated. If I had a choice over the films I could see during the day, would I have picked all those war movies? My brother would have – I just went along for the ride. I only now realise how good a thing that was. Someone else held the controls, and they were in TV headquarters. This of course is just the sort of centralised control that drives a content-stealing nation like ours crazy, but there’s no denying that the random, serendipitous discovery has a power unlike any self-selected moment of pleasure. The movie your parents make you watch; the book a friend says you have to read; the song you hear on the way out of the store: those experiences are strong and deeply affecting. My holiday movie-going was a kind of chance meeting, but one artfully designed by a most thoughtful and literate holiday director. Thank you, Ivan. I hope the movies are good where you are. \

Auction \ June 28 at noon

For my money (not quite adequate for the task here), this is the ideal city fringe location – walking distance to the CBD, Lygon Street and Brunswick Street, as well as the Carlton, Flagstaff and Fitzroy gardens. This is a lifestyle purchase topped off by a double-storey warehouse residence that is a perfect match of style and substance, hip and homely. The hard and cool edge of industrial style is softened by warm timber highlights found in wide oak floorboards, raw timber doors and a large timber island bench. Subtle design elements such as Japanese-style shoji sliding panels used in the main bedroom, a sloped glass atrium ceiling over the second entry hall and a black wrought-iron staircase bannister create a bespoke and thoughtful environment. The upstairs open-plan kitchen, living and dining area that opens to a large deck is the highlight. A retractable electric awning can enclose the deck and a fireplace heats it in the evening when guests will be entranced by the city lights. \ EMMA HOUGHTON

Good things come in reassuringly cosy packages sometimes, as with this Victorian terrace. There is a lacework-adorned verandah outside; inside, polished floorboards stretch throughout most of the property, and the high ceilings are enhanced by elaborate roses and deep cornicing. Two bedrooms sit up front, one with a built-in wardrobe and the other with a fireplace flanked by bookshelves. A spacious family room and meals area was built around an internal courtyard, ensuring it is a bright, welcoming hub. The bench of the L-shaped kitchen has a thick wooden ledge that resembles a railway sleeper, adding to the house’s quirky character. The neat bathroom sits off a large storeroom and has a glass brick wall backdrop to the shower-over-bath. A powder room is tucked next door. There’s a paved courtyard out back with a big lock-up shed. The Capital City Trail is at the end of the street, with Edinburgh Gardens close too, or hop on the Nicholson Street or St Georges Road trams into town. \ STEPHEN A. RUSSELL

The extension of this double-fronted Victorian weatherboard has been well postcode executed for large family living, incorporating a rear open-plan living area and a second bathroom, laundry and fourth bedroom. It is a great floor plan with a large, front formal lounge as an alternative to the open-living area. Victorian-era hallmarks such as high ceilings with roses and deep-moulded cornices and fireplaces are in situ. The elegant front lounge has a curved bay window and an open fireplace. A compact galley-style bathroom has been cleverly fitted in between it and its adjoining bedroom. The three spacious front bedrooms have plenty of built-in wardrobe space, while the fourth bedroom is opposite bathroom two and a laundry. The bright, north-facing open-plan area has a great aspect to the backyard. French doors open the space to a rear verandah that steps down to lawn and the pool. There is one off-street parking spot. \ EMMA HOUGHTON

This restored Victorian house is on a big allotment in a cul-de-sac, close to Maribyrnong River. A picture-perfect garden frames a double-fronted façade painted in white with blue trims. Complementing the front door, lacework in the front gate makes for a pretty touch and features such as cornice and ceiling roses, Baltic pine floors, dado walls, fireplaces, bay windows and hand-painted stained glass are sure to charm. The main bedroom has a fireplace and garden views through a bay window. Many people can gather by the fireside in the lounge; the kitchen is similarly spacious, while a study and kids’ retreat are a bonus. The central meals area opens to a large covered patio. Ducted heating and refrigerated cooling add modern comfort. The backyard rolls on with gardens, lawn, a solar-heated pool and vegetable patch before concluding at a carport with barbecue area and automatic rear access. The extension possibilities here are great, and a second storey could deliver city views. \ KAY KEIGHERY
