Movie Quote Quiz

Reggie Turner: From what you say, Oscar, it would seem that Reading Gaol is an enchanted castle. With the governor as its presiding elf.

Oscar Wilde: With no warning, I was transferred one afternoon from Wandsworth to Reading Gaol. In broad daylight, by train, shackled to a warder like a performing bear. That journey was the most exquisite of the tortures Her Majesty contrived for me. At Clapham Junction we had to wait for a connection. Half an hour, my dears, on platform two. Sadly, my public had not forgotten me.

Factual error: Wilde and Bosie meet at a railway station that is just signed "Rouen." There were then two main railway stations in Rouen: Rouen-Rive-Droite and Rouen Saint-Sever (or Rouen-Rive-Gauche). Neither would have a sign saying just "Rouen."
