Curzon was Viceroy of India. I played him in a two-part television film
about an invasion of Tibet by the British in 1903. The invasion was
initiated by Curzon. The film was made by a youth film project connected
with the film university, but they had a bit of a budget and the actors
got paid. My few scenes were filmed in Beijing. They had an impressive
looking building on which they had hung a brass sign saying "GOVERNMENT
HOURSE". I told the AD it could either be a horse or a house but not
both. They hastily found a large pot plant to hide the offending "R".
Everyone else in the film went to Tibet, but I was left behind. I am still waiting for a chance to film in Tibet!
