In bed with Amazing Spouse, watching ‘Captain Blood’:
Spouse: This is so CHEESY
Me: But! Basil Rathbone! Fencing! With Errol Flynn!
Spouse: The Robin Hood movie is better. And they both fence there, too. Robin and Guy
(as a certain Robyn and Guy snort at the idea of… and I quote… ‘poncy’ fencing technique)
Mr. Rathbone: (in uber-French accent, brandishing rope) “You know, you can screw a man’s eyeballs out of his head with one of these…”
Me: Now, my Robyn would appreciate that.
Spouse: More like your Guy would.
And that, my friends, is when you realise that Mr. Rathbone needs to be “cast”, somehow, as one of the Wode villains.
Care to guess who?
