The 39 Year Old Trevor Howard
13 September 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

He's quite interesting to watch is old Trevor Howard. His quintessential upper class English manner is endearing and engaging. He does have the grit between his teeth, and a depth of range in his voice. He won me over in this film.
