… a gash on his fore-noggin. It’s hard to see in the gifs, but very evident in the daylight scenes in the film.

So he has, bd! And here’s the evidence. I’d never noticed that before.

Would any knowledgeable person care to wade in with an explanation? Is it meant to be the war-injury that affected his eyesight? Or has MK been coshed on set by a jealous husband?

*colour me volunteer nursey*

Yep. Plot specific war injury which caused his short-sightedness.

Even so - and there’s been a lot of back-and-forth about this (for which much thanks), as @britishdetectives says, and as the gifs show, the “war wound” seems to have healed up in later shots. The story’s set in the 1920s. War’s been over several years. And no mention of an eye injury in the book (I nominate jillyfern to check her copy ;0) Jury’s still out.
I noticed that scar too britishdetectives and abjectadmirer but because it looked quite authentic, I assumed it was. In Benefactors (2 years before Enchanted April) you can occasionally see the same scar (only lighter). So maybe MK has a genuine scar and the make up artists in Enchanted April enhanced it? Just an idea. I’ve checked the book but can’t see any references to an injury or scar, but then his visual impairment is not in the book so why would his injury.

A sweet scene from Fools of Fortune, 1990.

(You were right jilly, it is a dark scene :O( This was as light as I could make the gifs without distortion.)

Lovely, previously unseen footage! Thanks vt. May I suggest a song to go with this? Lorraine Bowen’s I’m in Love With Julie Christie

Best thing about these - you can’t hear his dodgy accent lol

Gotta love him and his tash though 😊

          History Of The Inverted Jenny Stamp

"When a 24-cent stamp debuted on May 14, 1918, to commemorate the start of the first regularly scheduled airmail service, collectors knew it had been rushed into production, and would be printed in two colors, which meant that rare and valuable errors might slip into circulation. Even so, William T. Robey of Washington, D. C., was flabbergasted to discover a sheet of 100 stamps mistakenly showing the Curtiss JN-4H, the biplane known as the ‘Jenny’, upside down. ‘The clerk reached down under the counter and brought forth a full sheet,’ Robey recounted 20 years later, ‘and my heart stood still.’ He would soon learn that he had purchased the only sheet of erroneous stamps to fall into public hands.

Airmail service began the next day between Washington, Philadelphia, and New York, thanks to pioneering aviators like Reuben H. Fleet (Shown on the front of the stamp sheet). Over time, the Inverted Jenny sheet was broken up and sold, creating some of the most coveted collectibles in the world.

Today, two Inverted Jenny stamps soar among the treasures at the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum in Washington, D. C. With the opening of the William H. Gross Stamp Gallery in 2013—the museum’s 20th anniversary—visitors will also see a loaned block of four Inverted Jennys, one of only a handful in existence, in a setting that honors the innumerable ways one stamp can turn a moment in history upside down.”

MK can come and admire my reprints of the Inverted Jenny anytime he wants! Just stamp him and Airmail him my way! (Just be sure you put a note on him…”handle with care”!)

Fascinating history Miss mkmohair 😊

For Jilly (like you need more TBV gifs, right?) and anybody else who likes MK in TBV.

Frank Hunter gives the student advice on his golf swing in The Browning Version, 1985.

With him as an instructor, any of us could become a member of the LPGA in a matter of weeks. I personally like how he pushes the kid’s head down so very gently in gif number five.

My, my my. Just look at that schwing {:Ob~

{This is only the beginning….}

Thank you vagabondtrousers, beautifully done :o) I see you noticed the world is thirsty for TBV and Frank Hunter gifs. Especially that swing… Oh my… ;o)

Oh this is good :o)
