Becket (1964) Directed by Peter Glenville. Peter O’Toole as King Henry II and Sian Phillips as Gwendolen
Henry: I behave like a brute, but I am as soft as swan’s down inside. (Belches) You know, Thomas, sometimes I think that you and I are the only civilized men in England. I eat with a fork and you’ve made me into a man of the most delicate sensibilities. Now, if you really love me, you should find me a beautiful, well-bred girl to give me a little polish. Favor for favor, do you remember?
