Here are some screen caps of JB as Lord Goring, the idlest man in London, in An Ideal Husband.
Same rules: Don't hotlink; Do save and use as you wish. 25 large images each post - Dial-up beware!
Of course the question in everybody's mind - will there be tongue?
Oh yes, my friends, there will be. There will be.
An Ideal Husband
Thanks for sharing, gloria_scott!
It must take a lot of time to gather all those screen-caps; you must be very patient!
I thought you all would have fun with "An Ideal Husband". I noticed when I watched it that he must have had dry lips during production; I've never seen his tongue so much in one role! Does he EVER do that as Holmes? I know he did as Freddy at least twice in the "Show Me" scene (it's sad I remember that), but those seemed more part of the acting than just a pause in speech, if you know what I mean. The still where he's sticking his tongue out at Mabel looks especially odd when not in motion.
Why is it when I watch him in this one I just want to play it from the beginning again? Afterward my siblings and I go about the house quoting almost every line he says until I want to stick the DVD in again! Is there something wrong with me or does anyone else get that urge?

When I watched it the first time through, I only noticed the tongue once or twice. It's when I started doing the frame by frame for the caps that I was like, "Holy cow, there it is again! And again!"
Even though it does take some time to do the caps, it gives me the excuse to watch it again and really notice his performance and, especially in the case of the Granada series, how well their shot. And I always seem to find I have a grin on my face the whole time I'm doing it. I wonder why...
