DVR Alert

On Friday, December 14, TCM will air The Lion in Winter, starring Peter O'Toole, Katherine Hepburn, Anthony Hopkis, John Castle, and Timothy Dalton. It's not a swashbuckler, of course, but as a primer on dynastic politics, it's a must-see.


  1. "Every family has its ups and downs."

    I haven't seen this in years.

    In addition to loving the movie, I saw it live at the Walnut Street Theater in Philadelphia in 1992 when George Peppard was playing Henry II.

    1. I've never seen it live - doesn't seem to be performed very often anymore, which is a damned shame.

      Still, we always have the movie.
