Pecksniff walks the Red Carpet….

Good luck at the Oscars, Tom Wilkinson!
I haven’t seen any of the Oscar contenders (Or any other new movie) but I’m rooting for Tom, who was such a wonderful Pecksniff back in 1994.
Martin Chuzzlewit [1994]
(That’s Pecksniff on the left, Chuzzlewitt the Elder on the right.)
Pecksniff is perhaps the most frustrating of all Dickens villians, but he gets little notice since not so many people read “Martin Chuzzlewitt.” Well, if you’re not going to read it, at least watch Wilkinson be Pecksniffian in the BBC Miniseries.
And you won’t want to miss the scene-stealing by Alice from “Vicar of Dibley.”
