I had not watched the 1996 movie adaption of Henry James' book 'The Portrait of a Lady' until this year, but as I was writing up my last post about the Titanic sinking on James' birthday in 1912 I couldn't help thinking just how many actors in that film had been in Kubrick movies ... or movies about Kubrick.

(15 April 1843 – 28 February 1916)
The Portrait of a Lady, the Titanic, Henry James and Thomas Hardy?🎨🎭🎬Herrrrreeeesss Johnny:-)
There are the two Shellys, Shelly Winters from 'Lolita' playing Mrs. Touchett and Shelly Duvall from 'The Shining' playing Countess Gemini (Gemini/The Twins?), Nicole Kidman from 'Eyes Wide Shut' playing Isabel Archer and of course John Malkovich playing Gilbert Osmond in 'The Portrait of a Lady' and also a Kubrick imposter in the 2006 movie 'Color Me Kubrick'.
And then there is Richard E. Grant who plays Lord Warburton in the movie, who just seems to pop up everywhere lately, but not in any Kubrick films -Richard E Grant and Dispatches from Elsewhere?📨🎄📲
