HISTORY OF THE PRODUCTION
"I felt you gave a really wonderful interpretation of the Duke as an old man reminiscing about his life; a rounded, moving picture, with so much introduced in so short a time. You looked surprisingly like him and showed why everybody loved him in old age"
"May I congratulate you on a sparkling performance last Wednesday. In company with the Duke & Duchess of Wellington and the Countess of Longford we must have seemed like the grand jury seated on the back row in judgement. We were, however, all unanimous in our praises and, in fact, His Grace was enthusiastic about my idea to stage it at Apsley House"
