    SOUND EFFECTS. SV Sir Gerald Kelly speaks:- "A fine thing to have a grand old man/to do a dam fine picture."



    GV..."He painted what I believe the very finest portrait of Shaw in the world. After all, Shaw was a very great literary figure & John is a very great portrait painter. What would we not give for a drawing or a painting of a young Shakespeare if Hoblein has lived long enough to do it. Not, of course that I regard Shaw as good as Shakespeare."
