      In this context, it's worth remembering that the Telmarines in the _Prince
      Caspian_ film were played by experienced Italian and Spanish-language
      actors. They were not only darker-complexioned than the English children,
      they were also _much_ better actors, which did tend to tamper with my
      sympathies for the characters.
