> Philip. (Wondering why films (US: movies) so seldom include soliloquies)

To dig up an ancient thread, Philip, I think I can answer this. I've just
read Michael Caine's autobiography and he says Americans make action
moveies, Brits make talky movies. He also says they sometimes make filmed
radio, but I think he was being facetious. Soliloquies are talk sans
action, so I suppose that's why the US doesn't do them!
