John does OK for a twilight area. He is still likeable on camera. He has done some great films, and some reasonable films, but always is a watchable guy.
Plummer is still moving about, which is incredible, so far away from The Sound of Music. I know he is Irish, and rough-trade, but would a good old Irishman eff and blind continuously, like an American? Shame they made him do it, and he hadn't the confidence to refuse, and od a far stronger character as a result
