Dirk Bogarde

Dirk Bogarde - matinee idol, fearless character actor, memoirist, novelist, artist and all-round enigma - would have been 91 today.

One of my favourite actors from any era of film history, I have written about Bogarde repeatedly on The Agitation of the Mind. Here's hoping the likes of 'Providence' and 'Despair' get the long-awaited DVD treatment and his peerless work can once again grace the pages of this blog.

In the meantime, here's a large raised glass of pinot and the slow movement of Mahler's fifth.
