Last night on the CBC, I saw the movie, "The Madness of King George". I haven't seen it since it came out more than a decade ago. Starring Nigel Hawthorne, Helen Mirren, Rupert Everett, etc.... it has dream cast that lives up to its reputation. The story line (about the "madness" of George III) is part true, part fiction, but what a great story. Glorious music by Handel is heard throughout the movie. Besides the great acting and the engaging story line, the costumes are wonderful. The foppish attire and acting of George III's son, the Prince of Wales played by Everett, is dandyism to the nth degree. Oh, imagine what the StyleForum would have been like had it existed in the late 18th century? Recently, it was discovered that King George's "madness" was due to arsenic in his wigs! Also, on the CBC on Sunday nights, is a mini series on the story of Canadian hockey. Told in a Ken Burns fashion, this is a great production--if one can stand the constant intrusion of commercials.
