MONDAY, AUGUST 26, 2013…****THE LION IN WINTER…directed by Anthony Harvey****…with: Peter O’Toole, Katherine Hepburn, Anthony Hopkins, et al…

One of the joys which films provide too rarely is the opportunity to see a literate script handled intelligently. “The Lion in Winter” triumphs at that difficult task; not since “A Man for All Seasons” have we had such capable handling of a story about ideas. But “The Lion in Winter” also functions at an emotional level, and is the better film.   Roger Ebert

  2. check THIS out! – from emanuel levy @ rotten tomatoes

    the two lead actor-stars, Peter O’Toole and Katharine Hepburn, made the film quite enjoyable and commercial too. Hepburn, older in age than O’Toole (whose character is 50 but was in his 30s), shines as the shrewd and scheming queen, and the fact that she held the then alcoholic O’Toole in contempt, must have added spice to her performance; reportedly, at the end of the shoot, she spitted on his face.
