The British Library and the Horse Hospital

Today is the anniversary of the death of Joe Orton who was bludgeoned to death by his jealous lover 40 years ago.

Jim Hollands, a very talented (in both senses of the word) filmmaker has made a film of the Associated Rediffusion television play of The Erpingham Camp. I went after seeing an exhibition on the similarities between Christians Jews and muslims at the British Library. I especially liked seeing King David depicted as Henry VIII.
