I watched Spartacus on hi-def tonight. My husband was completely oblivious during the oysters or snails scene, which made me chuckle. Wikipedia has a nice entry on Spartacus. The entry explains that Anthony Hopkins dubbed Olivier’s lines when the film was remastered to include the Oysters or Snails scene with Tony Curtis.
That elicited a chuckle. Tell Steve-O he’s not alone in his obliviousness… I had to consult the link myself. I always thought the flick was more about pickles than snails.
BTW, you ever seen this site? Women’s speeches from around the world!
Yeah, that’s a great site.
