One Response to Goodnight, Mr. Ferrer

    The best moment in that movie is near the end, when Ferrer gets a standing ovation at Carnegie Hall. He faces the audience for the longest time and just soaks it in, biting his lower lip, and you can see him thinking: “Yup, I did it.” Not all of us will get to have a moment like that in our lives. I assume he died a happy man.
