I just bumped into the fact that Anna Massey died on July 3rd at the age of 73.
How sad. I remember her most from The Importance of Being Earnest and of course the film adaptation of Hotel du Lac. And do you remember she played Rupert Everett’s mother in Another Country?
Just this past weekend I was contemplating getting an Anita Brookner audiobook and out of the seven or so that I previewed, I liked the ones read by her best. I was on the fence about getting the audiobook. I don’t really get much out of listening to books, and I am not really the type to sit around and listen to anything for eight hours. But now maybe I will reconsider.
I’ve been trying to get ahold of the film of Hotel du Lac, but it doesn’t seem to be available in the US anymore. I know I rented it years ago. Maybe that was on VHS and they never released the DVD here in the US.
