    They reference The Young King (Henry) dying that summer.  I find that particular era of history, and those characters, fascinating, so I have read a great deal on it.  I have seen Becket, as well, and it is an interesting fact that O'Toole was nominated for Best Actor for playing the same character in two different movies (among his record 8 nominations without a win)!

    •  Ooooops!!! Sorry, my bad! (0+ / 0-)

      Criminy, I know better, too!  Like you, I've watched the movie so often I know some of the dialogue.  [I can only plead subconscious thoughts about an ancestor and events in his life for 1778, so my fingers goofed into an enormous typo.]  Sorry, and thanks for correcting me.

      One of my favorite scenes (and why Katharine Hepburn deserved the Academy Award for her role as Eleanor of Aquitaine):

      Besides Plantagenet England, the only subject about which I've read more - much more, actually - is the Tudor period, specifically Queen Elizabeth I..., altho I've read so much of the era over some 30+ years I even accidentally memorized the Tudor genealogy from Wales to the last Tudor monarch.

      I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
