The Great McShane!
Last night I finished watching the four-part British TV series about Benjamin Disraeli. It's a little slow-moving, and dated, but Ian McShane really gives an amazing performance. (Not to mention the fact that in his youth, he's cute as a button and wears as many gold chains as any self-respecting rapper) He goes from the young Ben the novelist to the elder statesman who Queen Victoria sends flowers from her Windsor garden. It was made by the BBC in 1978, and it's on Netflix.
