Peter Grimes

If time permitted I'd scan more old films, but that's hard during the shooting season. The Vickers Peter Grimes stands as the epitome of this role for me. My heart bled for Grimes from the first measure of the score. There was a giant on the stage, an anguished man, supreme artist. It made work thrilling and torturous,.... capture what's happening, do justice to greatness, get into the soul of Grimes. Exhausting endeavor. Yes, there are many more images, but there isn't time to scan everything. I wish the digital tools had been available in 1977.
