Does Anybody Else Think?....

Postby harryfaversham » Mon Nov 21, 2011 9:12 pm

The scene in 'The Diploma' where Harold is aping Albert as he's going on about how he got his glasses from a toff's house in Epsom is one of Harry's finest pieces of acting ever committed to film? I watch it at least twice a week and it never fails to crack me up. Am I alone or does anybody else find this scene as funny as I do?

Hi Harry

I wouldn't take it personally, a lot of topics in forums don't get replies, it's just the way they work. Often, if you have made the point so perfectly well people feel they have nothing else to add, so it can be a compliment. Other times they can just get overlooked.

I love that scene too, and think it is perfectly done, but then so many other scenes were that it would be hard for me to pinpoint a particular one. The ending of The Offer is a remarkable piece of television and such an important one at the time too. That single scene defined a whole new genre of television program.

There's a few occasions where Harold mouths along to Albert's speeches, yes the Diploma is fantastic but my fave is when Harold does it in Pilgrims Progress

yeah great scene
that's the one where albert says "good story isn't it" and harold replies "it used to be", is that right or am i mixing it up with another scene?
