Dinner for One

~ Same procedure as last year? ~

Dec 30, 2018

A 1963 British skit becomes a New Year's Eve television tradition in Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and even farther reaches such as Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Finland and Austria – and yet has been virtually unknown in the UK until recently. The sketch stars Freddie Frinton as James the butler, and May Warden as Miss Sophie.  Miss Sophie hosts a dinner for her birthday each year, but has reached the age where she does not know that her guests have long since passed on. James the Butler fills in for the missing guests. His performance is comic genius.
