Marwood's medallion

Marwood's medallion

PostPosted by Tennyson » Mon May 17, 2010 11:20 am

Can anyone with good eyesight describe the gold medallion Marwood wears in the bedroom seduction scene? I always assumed it was a St Christopher medal but in the commentary to the special edition DVD, Paul McGann claims it is a "virgin" (= madonna, I assume) and that this is evidence that Marwood is a good Catholic boy. Sounds unlikely to me.

Interesting...I always thought it was St Christopher as well, to go with the book he reads and that his 'journey' with Withnail was ending and he was being guided out safely - but I guess that's the crazy fans over analysing everything. If McGann said that's what it was, that's probably what it was, who'd know Marwood better than himself?
These aren't accidents! They're throwing themselves into the road, GLADLY! Throwing themselves into the road to escape all this hideousness! THROW YOURSELF INTO THE ROAD DARLING, YOU HAVEN'T GOT A CHANCE!
