A Visitor

Dear Fr. M., speaking of the Faith (although regrettably not of Seville, and apologies to all for the off-topic post), can you recommend a priest in the Diocese of Wilmington, Delaware, to whom to refer potential Tiber-swimmers of conservative Episcopalian extraction?

Old Dominion Tory

Father M's post about Seveille prompted me to remember one of my all-time favorite films--and its extremely uplifting ending.
For God, the King, and Spain!

Father M.

That is one of my all-time favorites as well.

I am researching that for you...

Andrew Cusack

One of my favourite statues in all of New York is that of El Cid by Anna Hyatt Huntington in the monumental sunken plaza of Audubon Terrace. (The sculptress also did a very good one of Joan of Arc which is gilded in St. Louis, I believe, and a copy of which is somewhere in Washington, DC).

ODT - Ever since his crack-up as Chief Inspector Dryfus in the Pink Panther movies, I can't watch Herbert Lom without expecting him to start giggling and twitching his eye.

Father M - You're developing a regular pipeline thing here!

Basil Seal

I always remember Herbert Lom being pushed off the bridge by Sir Alec Guinness in The Ladykillers...Nice post Father M...Sounds like my kinda place.

The Maximum Leader

I loved Seville. Granada too. Andalusia is beautiful. My regret is that I didn't visit there for long. I had only three weeks for the whole of Spain. Day here. Day there.

I wouldn't mind going back to Seville or Granada for a very extended vacation some day.

And speaking of Seville, perhaps if you shove enough Black Velvet into me, I'll do my Stupid Lawyer Aria Trick some time:

La vendetta, oh, la vendetta
È un piacer serbato ai saggi;
L’obliar l’onte, gli oltraggi,
È bassezza, è ognor viltà.
Coll'astuzia, coll’arguzia
Col giudizio, col criterio
Si potrebbe ... Il fatto è serio:
Ma, credete, si farà.
Se tutto il codice devessi volgere.
Se tutto l'indice dovessi leggere
Con un equivoco, con un sinonimo
Qualche garbuglio si troverà.
Tutta Siviglia conosce Bartolo:
Il birbo Figaro vostro sarà!
