lobby boy

8

A lobby boy is completely invisible, yet always in sight. A lobby boy remembers what people hate. A lobby boy anticipates the client’s needs before the needs are needed. A lobby boy is, above all, discreet to a fault. Our guests know that their deepest secrets, some of which are frankly rather unseemly, will go with us to our graves.
So keep your mouth shut, Zero.

Rupert Graves as Alec Scudder in Maurice (James Ivory, 1987)

I heard rumours that there’s not enough Alec Scudder on Tumblr. ;-)

This one’s a brand-new scan by me from an original 1987 BIG Spanish cinema lobby-photos set I treated myself to on e-bay. Hence the watermark: please reblog (not repost), and don’t chop off the watermark, caption or credits. Thank you. xxx
