All Those Merchant-Ivory Films Look Alike to Me
Last night I was up crafting in the kitchen and had on Encore. It's 11pm and Howards End is coming on. I think to myself, "Oh, I'll go ahead and keep it on". So, it starts and I see Vanessa Redgrave wandering about the country house of the title and I think, "oh, this must be back story, since it's not in the right time period." Then I see Anthony Hopkins and he appears to be the head of the family at the country manor. It was then that I thought, in passing, "gee, when is he going to be the butler? I guess there was a reversal of fortune!" Yeah. That would be "Remains of the Day", not "Howards End", thank you, very much.
