|#501||For myself, I can only say that I am astonished and somewhat terrified at|
the results of this evening's experiments. Astonished at the wonderful
power you have developed, and terrified at the thought that so much hideous
and bad music may be put on record forever.
-- Sir Arthur Sullivan, message to Edison, 1888

O.E.D.: David Lean, 1969, 3 hours 30 min.
Lean's version of the Oxford Dictionary has been accused of
shallowness in its treatment of a complete work. Omar Sharif
tends to overact as aardvark, but Alec Guiness is solid in
the role of abbacy. As usual, the photography is stunning.
With Julie Christie.
