“A kind heart he hath; a woman would run through fire and water for such a kind heart.” – The Merry Wives of Windsor


From the DVD bonus feature, Michael Kitchen chatting with Alison Elliot on the set of The Buccaneers.

Dancing the Virginia Reel in the ballroom scene.


Pity no behind-the-scenes footage of the negotiation scene.

Michael Kitchen is light on his feet in Dandelion Dead.

Enjoyed the escapist La La Land today. Fun watching modern-day actors break out into song and dance.

I’ve spent the last two weeks checking your posts daily – have become quite addicted (embarrassed smile.) Thank you so much for all the work you’ve done! I think you’ve missed one of the most romantic MK moments – from Mrs. Dalloway near the end. Clarissa goes to the library to fetch Peter and they dance together. Everyone else is dancing around them in the conventional way and Clarissa and Peter are wrapped up in each other. If you have this snippet on video – could you post it?

Always thrilled to hear from a fellow fan. I’m so glad you enjoy the site.  I’d be happy to post that scene.

Thank you so much for this scene of Mrs.Dalloway, it’s my favourite!

My pleasure. I’m oddly enthralled by his hand moving along her back in the last gif. The height difference between Vanessa Redgrave and Michael Kitchen makes their slow dance look rather awkward, though, imo. In a britmovie.com discussion on Brit actors wearing lifts, a member commented:

Watching Michael Kitchen and Vanessa Redgrave dancing in Mrs Dalloway (1997) last night I noticed that Michael who’s about 5’7, was only around 2 inches shorter that 6’1 Vanessa…

The first time I watched ‘Mrs Dalloway’, and he turned slowly from the window to look at her with that expression in his eyes, I remember saying, “Oh, my God,” aloud, even though I was alone at the time…

OK, my vision must be impaired, because somehow, I’m not really seeing the melting expression in his eyes.

Yes, that really is Michael Kitchen being half smothered by Kate Nelligan’s ample bosom!  I’m not quite sure why Henry is lying in Christabel Davenport’s lap, but he must be exhausted after an evening of trying to keep up with his overly exuberant dance partner and then making out with her in a local park.
