Description & Features+

"Maggie Smith At The BBC" - This BBC collection brings together an ensemble of legendary performances by the incomparable Maggie Smith in timeless works by Shakespeare, Shaw, Williams and Alan Bennett! Few words can fully describe the dazzling range of Dame Maggie Smith. You'll immediately appreciate the personality and breath of her talent even in her smaller roles after viewing a single performance from her illustrious 50-year career. Collection includes: 1) "The Merchant of Venice": The Venice of Titian and the Belmont of Botticelli are the visual inspiration behind this lavish production of the Shakespeare play. 2) "The Millionairess": Bernard Shaw's glittering farce "The Millionairess" reveals the true relations between class, capital, power and labor. This original BBC production brings the hilarity and searing commentary of Shaws work to vivid life. 3) "Talking Heads: Bed Among the Lentils": Maggie Smith stars in Alan Bennett's monologue about a vicar's wife who finds a vision of God at the local off-licence. 4) "Suddenly Last Summer": Tennessee Williams's play stars Maggie Smith as Mrs Veneble, whose grief at the loss of her beloved poet son turns to rage against her niece Catharine, his last companion and witness to his gruesome death. Determined to erase the memory of Sebastian's loss, she tries to persuade her pet doctor to perform a lobotomy on Catharine.
