OH

And My Favorite Line?

Miss. Goodnight… Keep The Faith, Ma’am… See Ya At The Hangin’!” — Rooster Cogburn 

(Not So) Random Movie Mention: THE LION IN WINTER (1968)

“THE LION IN WINTER”

… … …

Okie The Dokie, My Peeps…

…Here’s The Skinny.

I Don’t Honestly Know How Many MULTIPLE Times I’ve Seen This Flick.

Dozens…

…Perhaps?

The POINT Being…

…It’s A Large’ish Total.

And I VERY SINCERELY Have Felt…

…From The Moment I Found-Out…

…That THIS FILM…

“THE LION IN WINTER”

…Was THE FILM…

…Where Acting Favorite…

PETER O’TOOLE

…Was ROBBED ROBBED ROBBED…

…By “The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences” MOST SERIOUSLY.

Period.

If You’ve Not Seen This Film…

…O.M.G!

“THE LION IN WINTER”

…Is…

…BY FAR…

…One Of THE MOST Professionally Acted Films…

…In THE HISTORY Of Films.

Period.

PETER O’TOOLE

…As…

“King HENRY II”

…To ME…

…Give US…

…HIS WOW-BANG-ZOOM…

…TOUR’DE’FORCE…

…PERFORMANCE To End All PERFORMANCES.

BIG PERIOD.

Now…

…Remembering What I’ve Just Said To You…

…Think About The Rest Of This Cast.

KATHARINE HEPBURN

…As…

“ELEANOR Of AQUITAINE”

ANTHONY HOPKINS

…As…

“Prince RICHARD”

JOHN CASTLE

…As…

“Prince GEOFFREY”

NIGEL STOCK

…As…

“WILLIAM MARSHALL”

…AND AND AND…

TIMOTHY DALTON

…As…

“King PHILIP II Of FRANCE”

!!!

YES, My Peeps.

“THE LION IN WINTER”

…Was…

…Truly…

…ACTED BY PROFESSIONALS.

KATHARINE HEPBURN

…DID Get Her Oscar For This One…

…Though She Had To SHARE IT With A Woman Who CAN’T ACT.

(SIDE NOTE: No, I Do NOT Like Barbara Streisand)

But Knowing…

PETER O’TOOLE

…Has NEVER Received A TRUE Oscar…

…And Having SEEN This Film So Many Times…

…It Was Likely The Hardest Pill To Swallow For The Man.

I’ve Seen All FIVE Nominated Performances For That Year…

…And Can EASILY Say…

…HE GOT ROBBED ROBBED ROBBED!!!
