Dear Johnny...



...typecast again.

Here, Dear Johnny and Dear Larry have tea:





"The joke is that people think of me as an intellectual actor. Yet I have always trusted almost entirely to observation, emotion and instinct."

"Acting is half shame, half glory. Shame at exhibiting yourself, glory when you can forget yourself."


Sir Arthur John Gielgud, OM, CH (14th April 1904 – 21st May 2000)

  1. What a great video. I'm envious of these artists who were born at the beginning of the century and were around for all the crazy acts of the 1900s.

    1. "Spitting Image" left no British icon un-parodied, and I am sure Johnny loved his portrayal - I can almost hear him chortling in the background... Jx
