PG | | Drama, Romance
A butler who sacrificed body and soul to service in the years leading up to World War II realizes too late how misguided his loyalty was to his lordly employer.
Principal photography wrapped on December 1, 1992, at Badminton House, Gloucestershire, England.
Why? Why, Mr. Stevens, why do you always have to hide what you feel?
After Richard Carlisle drops off Stevens and empties the can of petrol into the gas tank of the car, the Daimler starts up right away on the first try. Considering that the car stalled because of fuel starvation due to an empty tank, the engine would be unable to start until the fuel pump has operated long enough to pump the gas from the tank to the float bowls of the carburetor. It would start eventually, but not instantaneously.
