In my eyes, Christopher Plummer‘s absolute peak performance was his bite-your-head-off Mike Wallace in The Insider (’99). (Key line: “No, that’s fame…fame has a 15 minute half-life…infamy lasts a little longer”). His J. Paul Getty in All The Money in the World was fairly terrific also. Previous highlights do not include The Sound of Music….sorry. But they do include The Fall of the Roman Empire, Waterloo, The Man Who Would Be King (as Rudyard Kipling), The Silent Partner (creepy bad guy opposite Elliot Gould, Susannah York), Somewhere in Time, Dolores Claiborne, A Beautiful Mind, The New World, Beginners, Knives Out. I never once saw Plummer on stage — very sorry for that. He was 91 years old.
