If you've been dying to hear the sound of my voice, you can hear me stumble through half a question on "Ask Mick Lasalle." The first part of the question that got cut off for time was my description of my attempts to like actors who I previously disliked. "I had rousing success with Kay Francis, whom I'd only seen in In Name Only where she plays a really unpleasant character. I watched some of her earlier films that you (Mick) had recommended and I just love her now. I had some success with Leslie Howard, whom I'd only seen in Gone With the Wind. After three or four movies I was about to give up on him and then I found Pygmalion, which I really liked on account of his floppy hair which really worked for me. Then I utterly failed with Gail Patrick who I'd seen play unpleasant characters but still haven't seen her as the heroine where I can stand her."
This is a great podcast as they discuss various adaptations of Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre.
