I watched Time Bandits with my son the other night. It’s been at least 25 years since I’ve seen that movie! I remember not being able to turn it off as a boy. It is funny watching movies as an adult that you last watched as a child. You notice all kinds of things that you would have never noticed as a child. In this case, the Supreme Being‘s suit really stood out to me. Sir Ralph Richardson‘s tailor was impeccable!
A Google search indicates that his tailor MAY have been Anderson & Sheppard on Savile Row. If any gentlemen’s fashion connoisseurs happen to stumble across this blog, please take a moment to share your comments on Sir Ralph Richardson’s clothing.
Here is another clip for those of you who dig Keats poetry and British accents.
