Wonder who slapped harder, Judi or Francesca? I like how his characters react with the same words in both scenes.
It’s been a while, but Michael Kitchen in The Browning Version has me in his thrall again.
(Could there be any more patterns packed into this frame?)
Frank Hunter demonstrates a proper golf swing for Taplow, while I admire Michael Kitchen’s form on the backswing.
My top 20 Michael Kitchen roles:
8. Frank Hunter in The Browning Version (1985)
Presumably fresh from filming Out of Africa, MK makes a gorgeous boys’ school teacher in Terence Rattigan’s play.
Glad Foyle doesn’t smoke. Wonder if MK had anything to do with that decision.
Michael Kitchen is being his usual adorable self here, but it’s his watch I keep eyeing, because mine broke yesterday. : (
Judi Dench and Michael Kitchen together in The Browning Version (1985) and The World is Not Enough (1999)
Enraged and sexy in The Browning Version and Reckless.
Michael Kitchen’s acting is nothing short of explosive in the scene from Reckless when Richard Crane finally throws off the cloak of repentance and hits back at Anna. His “Yes, if you say so” gets me every time.
Michael Kitchen channels old Hollywood looking like a matinee idol in this shot from The Browning Version.
Millie looks hungrily at Frank.
That man is completely irresistible and most women would love to have been in Judi’s shoes. Thanks for giving us another opportunity to indulge our fantasies.
There is also a swoon-worthy moment in TBV [about 1:13 in, here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpt9ITlu7bU] where he takes a draw on the cigarette and squints at her. I’m not much for smoking, but wow…
This moment? There are so many MK “moments” in The Browning Version, it’s a veritable swoonfest when he’s on screen.
