    This film has so many astounding performances . Mr. Finch deftly delivered the classic lines. They drip with the sardonic wit i imagine adorned them the first time they were uttered. It's my favorite version of Mr. Wilde's later years. The actor for "Bosie" in the Robert Morley version was far too old. It truly knocked the picture's balance out of kilter. Mr. Fry's "Wilde" was a delight, and the amount of time they spent on Wilde's prison life stung appropriately. Thank you, Aimfordelight, for sharing this gem! Peace be with you...Lukerdog

    That's the great comic actor, Lionel Jeffries, acting as the miserable father. He's a joy...

    Great performance by John Fraser (Bosie), for two pins i'd say he stole the show from Finch..:)
