    New York Times Interviews Zeffirelli

    I'm a bit pushed for time this week, but I just came across an interview with Franco Zeffirelli in the New York Times.

    There's not a great deal of discussion about Jesus of Nazareth per se but a good deal about Zeffirelli's Catholicism which he describes as "open... theatrical... flashy." He is, apparently, still a 'devout Catholic', albeit with a few quibbles. '"There are some doubts about the Virgin Mary," he said ruminatively. "But not him."'

    Thanks to Mark Pedro for the above photo and Peter Chattaway for the tip off about the interview.
