Flick Pick: The Lion In Winter

The Lion In Winter
(Avco Embassy, 1968)

Peter O'Toole and Katharine Hepburn in a magnificent display of talent, both at the height of their powers, in this film based on the stage play of the same name. Nominated for seven Oscars, and winning three, including the third (of four lifetime) for Best Actress to Hepburn. Also introducing a new kid named Anthony Hopkins to film. "To be alive, king, and fifty!" Indeed.
