Re: Fubsy

Guiness! I swoon for Alec Guiness. We tend to think of him as a fine, wry character actor, but as you’d know, John, in his youth he was brilliantly funny–in the chase scenes in The Man in the White Suit he moved as well, which is to say as hilariously, as Chaplin himself. Come to think of it, the character Guiness played in that film was…fubsy.

Thank you, John. A fine word explained, and an excuse to think for a moment about one of the greats. I count myself a notch deeper in your debt.
