Quote of the Day (Alec Guinness, With a Thought for This Year’s Oscar Nominees)

"I suggest that the givers of awards to actors, writers and artists should choose half a dozen, almost at random, and say, 'These are people we wish to honour--equally.’"—Alec Guinness, My Name Escapes Me: The Diary of a Retiring Actor (1998)

The image accompanying this post shows, of course, Alec Guinness in own Oscar-winning role in David Lean’s 1957 epic, The Bridge on the River Kwai.
