True, della! I also enjoyed the full frontal nudity on Graves, Julian Sands, and even Simon Callow as the rector  :laugh:!

*sigh*

I love the Brits.  :-* :-* :-*

It was lovely to see a young Rupert Graves in "A Room With a View" an old Merchant-Ivory film I watched last night.

That's a lovely movie. I saw it in the same weekend that I saw My Beautiful Laundrette, and I knew right then what an amazing actor Daniel Day-Lewis is.

Veering back into tangents, I heard earlier this week that Ruth Prawer Jhabvala has died at 85. She was the screenwriter for A Room with a View and Howards End, among many others. One thing that I didn't know before was that, of the celebrated producers of both films, Ismael Merchant and James Ivory, neither was a Brit. Merchant was born in India and Ivory was an American. Fancy that!

Oh, dear! She just had a story published in The New Yorker.  :(

I was reminded last night of all the Sherlock Holmes incarnations. I was watching a show where a woman who was suspected of witchcraft demonstrated that things she knew about people that she could not possibly know came from her "powers" of observation: She could tell that someone worked at shearing sheep from the condition of his hands, and because "he reeks of mutton."  ;D  (She was also an accomplished herbalist.)

Personally, I would say he "reeks of lanolin". Mutton doesn't smell really until after it's butchered.

They probably meant to imply that he smelled like a sheep, but I just quoted the dialog as it was.
