IMDbTV Pick: Showtime's "Penny Dreadful"

The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.

Claire Bloom is English
15 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
