    ^ I saw this live at Stratford nearly 20 years ago. And then again a couple of years ago in one of those live-theatre-at-the-movies broadcasts -- I think that's the production that will air on PBS.

    Aside from Plummer at his best, it's a great play for anyone who has any interest at all in the creative process. Or the Barrymores.

    Link to an article on "Barrymore" and Christopher Plummer in my local paper written by our local TV reviewer -
    http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/art...242708381.html

    Hopefully you can access this. I found Christopher's comments about how he felt adapting the stage play to screen very interesting.

    PBS Detroit never showed this, as every Friday they do a Classic Film Festival thing and last night was Some Like It Hot. Which was a good thing, as I finally got it on DVD, but I would have adored to see this!!

    Oh my gosh, Barrymore was amazing. Plummer had that audience in the palm of his hand the moment he stepped onstage, and with good reason.

    I have got to get that on DVD.

    Since some of these are getting muddled up in the Downton Abbey thread, I thought I'd put in a post for the return dates of some of our favourite British series:

    Call the Midwife - Mar 30
    Mr. Selfridge - Mar 30
    The Bletchley Circle - Apr 21

    Any others?

    I don't know what Masterpiece will be showing on Mar 9-16-13, though. The last episode of Downton Abbey should be done Mar 2 if I've done my math right, and the PBS website only has the Masterpiece schedule up to Feb 23.

    ^ I saw that when they did their movie-theatre broadcast in the fall. It was fantastic, as you'd expect -- although also slightly frustrating because it makes you want to see the whole productions rather than just scenes.

    Another returning favourite: Doc Martin. I spotted on another board that they started season 6 on the Detroit PBS affiliate last night, and I believe the Seattle one will be airing it starting next month. Yay!

    I do think it's lost a lot of its freshness, they should have ended with season 4, but I'm still looking forward to the conclusion of the story. I believe 6 will be the last season.

    Did anyone else catch The Making of a Lady on Sunday night after Downton? It was delightfully creepy, the way any Victorian gothic thriller should be. Frances Hodgson Burnett all grown up.

    The ending was a bit rushed, but I thought it was well done overall, very enjoyable.

    I recorded it and watched it last night. I enjoyed it too, and spent a lot of the time trying to remember where I've seen the two male leads before. The Emily actress reminded me of Justine Waddell, whom I've seen in many British productions.

    Linus Roache (Walderhurst) is mostly a stage actor, but is known for screen work on this side of the pond for a recurring role in Law & Order, and in Britain probably best known for Coronation Street.

    I agree about Lydia Wilson's similarity to Justine Waddell. They both have that classic ingénue look.
