As he's lunching in a field, a local priest comes by attempting to catch a butterfly for his collection.
|He wears schorten-schortens...|
|Go on... take a "peak!"|
The Four Musketeers (1974), but perhaps that is due to the fact that all I really knew was my father's German beer-barrel sort of torso (which I inherited!)
|Just a light afternoon repast...|
|The spectacular castle also appears in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968) and served as the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty's castle in Disney's theme parks.|
|An example of the cinematic creativity at work here. These people in the circles are all targets of York's greed. They're in his sites.|
|Even just freshly-awakened, Lansbury still has the same heavily made-up face on!|
|A more beautiful setting could scarcely be found.|
Just as intended, Corlan comes bounding down to the terrace and is soon in his own undies, diving in to splash around with York. Their intimate frolic, almost resembling ecstasy at moments, is observed by the stern and disapproving Lier.
|Lansbury might not be satisfied with the dower house, but its amazing in its own right!|
|These people are but figures on a chessboard for the manipulative York.|
|Just one small, happy family?|
|Angie is serving up some "side-boob" here...|
|They talk about Bette Davis' eyes?|
|Take yer board shorts and stuff 'em...!|
As I noted earlier, this was a return to movies for Lansbury after having taken to the stage. She would also make Bedknobs and Broomsticks this same year which is by far the more enduring movie, though this was the juicier role (and she's wonderful.) She was, in fact nominated for a Golden Globe for this, but lost to Carrie Snodgrass in Diary of a Mad Housewife. Remarkably, it would be 1978 and Death on the Nile before she would make another movie. Though she's never ceased working, and is capable of enacting practically any type of part, she is now best-known for her twelve seasons of Murder, She Wrote and further TV movies as the intrepid mystery-writing detective Jessica Fletcher. Nominated three times for an Oscar, she was finally granted an Honorary one in 2014. The marvelous Miss Lansbury is now Dame Angela Lansbury and still works at age ninety-four.The Three Musketeers (1973) to Logan's Run (1976) and worked steadily thereafter in a combination of TV and films. (And let's not forget the crazed Lost Horizon, 1973!) Stricken with a debilitating disease called amyloidosis, he has been off screen since 2011, but has still but his distinctive voice to use for projects. He is currently seventy-seven.
