12. Sir john Hare as "Benjamin Goldfinch" in A Pair of Spectacles.

Scope and Content

A veteran favourite, has been before the public for more than fifty years, receiving the honour of knighthood in 1907. He was for some time under the Bancrofts' management, at the Prince of Wales Theatre, London, in a series of Robertsonian comedies, and also appeared as "Sir Peter Teazle" in "A School for Scandal." Many, however, will remember him chiefly for his wonderful acting as the genial and kindly "Benjamin Goldfinch," in "A Pair of Spectacles," and will recall his closing words, as the curtain comes down, "I would rather trust and be deceived, than mistrust and be mistaken."
