Don’t know what made me think of this scene…when King Henry II is coming down to the dungeon for Geoffry and Richard…
Geoffrey: He’s here.
Richard: He’ll get no satisfaction out of me. He isn’t going to see me beg.
Geoffrey: Why, you chivalric fool, as if the way one fell down mattered.
Richard: When the fall is all there is…it matters a great deal.
yeah… the man’s got a point…
it’s sometimes the script that makes a heck of a movie. (yeah the rest of the things too)
My favorite film!
