Since it’s Virginia Woolf’s birthday today…

And then his entire body drops with his signature knee dip – it’s the picture of dejection.

Just love those Mrs Dalloway GIF’s, thank you! So wish GIF’s had sound; Michael Kitchen and Vanessa Redgrave have a similar velvety timbre to their voices – SO attractive.

Yes, gifs with audio would be wonderful.

Clarissa keeps her promise.

With another Oscar-winning actress…

In Mrs. Dalloway (1997), Michael Kitchen plays the romantic Peter Walsh, who returns from India and visits the woman who broke his heart three decades earlier.

Glad Foyle doesn’t smoke. Wonder if MK had anything to do with that decision.

Michael Kitchen – the consummate charmer.

Love the post of Peter Walsh nodding off in the park, KF. You have such a wonderful eye for detail! Mrs. Dalloway is one of my favourite films, but that little gem completely passed me by.

I always think my eye for detail pales in comparison to many other MK fans, but thanks. Knew I had to make a gif of this scene when I saw it.


Whilst searching for images of MK posing, I came across this image…. 
He manages sexy and lonely in one go… sigh


He manages a lot of things, just not quite filling out those trousers….


…mmmaybe from the front?*Ahem!* Mr Foyle? Just pivot for us, would you?

Beautiful image. I enjoy seeing the back of MK almost as much as the front.  Here’s another one from Mrs. Dalloway that caught my eye:

Nattily dressed for a stroll through the park.

Michael Kitchen evokes the stuff of dreams in this shot. (I’ve no difficulty seeing his melting eyes here.)

Thank you for posting the Mrs. Dalloway scene as requested. Now I am completely hooked! – anonymous

You’re welcome. Michael Kitchen does have a way of reeling one in.

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.
