: Hi, NS...I'm with you! I saw him win for My Left Foot before I had ever heard of him, and all I could think was, "Who IS this gorgeous, lean, tender-hearted man," as he gulped down tears while he received a standing ovation. Shortly thereafter, I saw LOTM, and thought, in the famous words of Daner1000, WOOOOOO-HOOOOOO! I have found my HERO! ;o) Now, when I look at the film of that Oscar acceptance speech, it really touches me, and I think he looked absolutely wonderful in his black frock coat. Sorry, Jo, but you'd better run far, run FAST, or your MMMM will getcha!
MMMM: I got to thinking after I posted yesterday, that maybe the chronology is a little off. He received the '89 Oscar for MLF, which means it would have been awarded in March, '90. So at the March '91 Oscars when he presented would have been just before he went into filming for LOTM, which is why his hair was so much longer. Am I wrong or am I right, one who knows all re DDL?
