What a Wonderful Elegy He Made for Himself
Sir Laurence Olivier, the magnificent!! What a sweet comedy and the line to best ALL lines: "I ALWAYS get angry when I'm dying!" and he does. This was his swan song a few years before he died.

And how great it was to see two Anthonies play opposite on another, Alan Bates and Laurence Olivier. Father and son, it was so wonderfully sweet and funny. Of course, the beautiful English countryside wasn't half-bad either.

I love observing the native habits of the English. They are so funny and so well educated...at least they were back in those times before the fall of the Empire. To watch all the goings-on in the courtroom was well worth the price of the movie. U.S. courtroom behavior is so much more cut and dried with none of the unmeant and deliberate humor that was injected in this movie.

See this one, and understand that it can well be a primer for dying the good death.
