“Best bespectacled Hero” Joanna Cake saied, the host of Movie Clip Wednesday. Well, that’s easy: William of Baskerville (Eng.), the Franciscan friar. The following excerpt from the 1986 documentary suffers a bit from bad lightning – but what do you expect from the year 1327, its dark ages after all! – and for those ready to skip the creeping in the dark, skip the first three minutes. They only babble about books anyway. William is a bit myopic and should keep his glasses clean, just rubbing it on the cowl’s sleeves …, TA, but again – it’s 1327, what do you expect?
