Lord Richard, Uncle Joshua, and Judy Howard are discussing a movie made about the French painter, Paul Gauguin. The film was a 1942 fictional film based loosely on Gaugin's life. "The Moon and Sixpence (1942)" was the film. It was based on a 1919 novel of the same title by W. Somerset Maugham. In that film, George Sanders played Charles Strickland, whose life resembled Gaugin's.
Uncle Joshua Howard:
You know, Judy, I mind your happiness more than anything else in the world.
Judy Howard: I know you do.
Uncle Joshua Howard: Excepting, of course, good sherry and good brandy.
Ten people are seated at the dinner table. In a later scene of dancing to a band, 14 people can be seen on the dance floor and they don't include Uncle Joshua, the Marquis of Borechester (George) or Richard.
About one-third into the movie, the screen runs credits that introduce the Borechester family: "Borechester Towers. Ancestral seat of the Marquis of Borechester. "A.D. 1100. The Normans started building the walls... "A.D. 1300. The family started hanging their pictures on the walls... "A.D. 1939. The R.A.F. took over and started scribbling on the walls... "A.D. 1947. A Stately home of England -- with the state coming nearer every budget."
