I saw most of King Ralph last night, despite the fact that the opening credits are done in Zapf Chancery. (I very nearly abandoned it for that reason alone, but I’m biased; my high school newspaper used Zapf Chancery for its masthead, so I’m a bit sick of it.)
I enjoyed it, actually — and three actors in it would go on, ten years later, to work together in the Harry Potter movies. The actors
who play Vernon Dursley and Mr. Ollivander play a lord and a high-level official in King Ralph, and another lord is portrayed by the man who later provided the voice for the Sorting Hat.
Watching Vernon Dursley smile graciously (and therefore in a most un-Dursleyish manner) disturbs me a bit.
