Quote of the Day (Alec Guinness, on Knighthood for British Actors)

“The point of a knighthood for British actors is to enable them to play butlers.”—Sir Alec Guinness, A Commonplace Book (2002)

(The image accompanying this post is of Guinness’ fellow actor-knight, Sir John Gielgud, who actually won a Best Supporting Actor for playing the butler Hobson in Arthur.)
