“Ma’am, state your business.”


This is a line from the 1994 movie, Camilla, in which Jessica Tandy plays a violinist. I can state for a fact that Jessica Tandy couldn’t play a violin. Nor could she fake playing a violin.

Ah. And now Hume Cronyn has appeared.

So yet another movie that makes a musician wince. (Although I do enjoy seeing Tandy and Cronyn.)

It’s a funny world, where music disturbs people.

-Jessica Tandy (as Camilla)

And one more…

“I can play the silly thing, you know.”

“I know you can.”

“Just not if anyone is listening.”
