Young Fry

Stephen Fry as a Younger Oscar Wilde (in America) Stephen Fry is known for playing Oscar Wilde in the 1997 movie Wilde. The opening to that film shows Oscar arriving in town on horseback for his lecture in Leadville, Colorado, but the scene gives a false impression.

Homophones

It's debatable whether the name Ernest, used punningly by Wilde in his most famous play The Importance of Being Earnest, was chosen as a late Victorian code word for "gay".

Wilde Fire

SAY IT AIN'T SO, ST. JOE. What a shame. The venue where Oscar Wilde lectured in St. Joseph, Missouri in April 1882, was destroyed by fire on Monday this week.
