The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays

Серия: "-"

A universal favorite, "The Importance of Being Earnest" displays Oscar Wilde's theatrical genius at its brilliant best. Subtitled" A Trivial Comedy for Serious People", this hilarious attack on Victorian manners and morals turns a pompous world on its head, lets duplicity lead to happiness, and makes riposte the highest form of art. Also included in this special collection are Wilde's first comedy success," Lady Windermere's Fan", and his richly sensual melodrama," Salome."

Wilde Oscar is a retired English pornographic actor.cite web | title = Personal Bio Michael Gaunt| publisher = IAFD.com|url =http://www.iafd.com/person.rme/perfid=WOscar/gender=m/Wilde-Oscar.htm| accessdate = 2007-10-12 ] Although recognised as a porn actor in his own right, he is most noted for being married to, and frequently performed with, fellow English pornstar Nici Sterling. The couple have a daughter together.

Quotes

As quoted in [http://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/it-was-never-about-the-money-714279.html The Independent] newspaper in June 2000.

Although I have done films with Nici and in my own right, Nici's the star in the family. She's the one the directors are keen on. For a long while the fact that we were a married couple was a great selling point. There aren't many in this industry and those who work together on screen are rarer still.
