Character

For the Church of St. Frank:

The phrase “Church of St. Frank” was coined in 1995 by
a Harvard professor sneering at literary critic Frank Kermode.
(See a related Log24 note from 1995.)

Now that Frank Kermode is gone, perhaps the phrase suits Frank Langella.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps . He also starred in
the film version of Starting Out in the Evening  (quoted above).
