It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but it's well worth seeing - and of course it's a joy to listen to Ian - and Richard Dreyfuss et al give fine performances.


  1. A wonderful gentleman and a superb actor, he is sorely missed.

  2. Yes indeed, Derek - just got to keep on enjoying what is out there to see on television or DVD.
