A long time ago someone asked me who my favorite actor was and me being the anti anything normal and girly thoughts said the old guy Mickey Rooney was my favorite actor but not so anymore: Marcus Gilbert is an amazing actor and my current favorite of all time. Ever seen the movie Legacy - the church movie? That's my favorite movie that he's in and then A Hazard of Hearts. He's just amazing; he acts the part of gentleman easily and so well . . . it makes me wish he had been born 40 years later.
One of my favorite quotes from A Hazard of Hearts was when he talks to young Serena and asks her whether she loves her cousin Nicholas and would rather marry him, she responds and tells Lord Vulcan (Gilbert) that he is in love with another lady. Then Vulcan asks if she has anyone and she responds "I am in love with no one my lord." Then with an almost coy look on his face he asks her "Shall I make you fall in love with me?" She looks at him with a mixture of surprise and fear on her face and then runs off into her room where she closes the door but peaks through a crack later to watch him walk away. Such a splendid film.
Then another favorite part of mine is where she overhears Lord Wrotham and Lady Vulcan (Justin - Gilbert)'s mother talking and plotting how to get rid of her but to gain her dowry and she runs off and runs into Justin and surprises both of them but seeing that it's him (Gilbert) she clings to him hugging him, as he is her only friend in that hostile house while he asks her what's the matter. It's just so romantic. I love it.
And then the scene where he finds out that she knows all their secrets and she offers her hand as agreement that she wont tell anyone and he examines her hands . . . tender
And then another time when . . . well haha might as well just watch it right? Right. But here's my favorite fanmade music video - love the song and love the movie so it's great -
And then if you want to watch the actual film - it's also on youtube in parts (that's how I watched it . . . couldn't find it at the library) Anyway - it was great. :)
Last words: I love Marcus Gilbert ;)
