They are sad. Something which had a similiar effect on me was a brief clip I saw on one of my Peter Cushing DVDs. There was an interview with him when he was in his sixties I think, I'm not sure. That was a pleasure to watch, but there was also a clip of a few minutes of footage taken at a special party a friend threw for his 80th birthday. He was in failing health but you could see his delight in being reunited with friends he hadn't seen in some cases for decades. But he was frail, a shadow of the Cushing we know in films. I felt like balling my eyes out after seeing it.
