Charles Ryder meets his match

Here's a funny clip from the classic adaptation of my favorite novel -- Evelyn Waugh's Brideshead Revisited. I await with trepidation the Miramax film version coming to theaters this summer. Judging from the trailer it's a dumbed down, sensationalistic treatment. Ugh! For this viewer, Jeremy Irons will always be the face and voice of Charles Ryder. Likewise for the rest of the fabulous cast that made watching those 11 episodes on Masterpiece Theatre such a memorable experience. Et in Arcadio ego.
