James OCallaghan MP, who was a friend of Hodgson and godfather to his son James Stewart Hodgson, who became a partner of Barings and a governor of the Bank of England.I didn't like The Grudge quite as much as Hide and Seek, but this is still a very good film--it earns a 9 out of 10 from me.The Grudge has a couple significant differences from other recent examples of that trend, however.Karen soon learns that something is not right in Emma's home, and she attempts to "see how deep the rabbit hole goes".Maybe it's a delayed influence from the success of M.The first person to contact me was able to provide me with a picture of my grandmother something I didnt have at all as well as a photo of my grandfather when he was younger."
