    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ. 3): REPORTER: "Well, Sir Keith, you seem to be looking pretty well?"



    SIR KEITH: "Well, I'm certainly feeling it."



    REPORTER: "What do you think of the model?"



    SIR KEITH: "Well, its like somebody that I know - but I'm not quite sure who it is that its like. He's certainly much more handsome than I am."



    REPORTER: "Of course, it is eight years old - do you think its a good likeness?"



    SIR KEITH: "I never thought of it as a good likeness, but then I don't think the subject is a good judge in these matters. But most people I know and who've known me for years, say it has not been a good one. But you see, I'm eight years older, actually I feel younger than that one looks. Ah, I don't know."
