This is where Keats is supposed to have heard the nightengale on the heath. Poor old thing! All he'd hear now at night is grunting in the bushes.

I can hardly believe that three British people above have referred to the beautiful Claire Bloom as and American actress. One of them credited her being American with having enlivened the proceedings, and one blamed her being American for faults in the production.
Can it be that British people don't know that she is regarded in the United States as one of the most distinguished English actresses? She made her debut in Charlie Chaplin's LIMELIGHT. And could anyone seeing her as Lady Marchmain in BRIDESHEAD REVISITED imagine that she was anything but English? She also appeared on British television as Joy Davidman in SHADOWLANDS.
