The same actor / interpreter who portrays Benedict Arnold, also switches roles (and sides) and plays / interprets the famed young major general, the Marquis de Lafayette: Revolutionary War hero—of French nationality—who proceeded to play a part in the French Revolution, but lived to tell the tale. (He didn’t lose his head, as many of his countrymen did.)
He paused, in the midst of his campaign near Yorktown, to have a portrait made with me…. (last photo).
He’s not expressing confusion, he’s tilting his head for better sound localization. While having an ear on each side of the head is good for lateral echolocation, tilting the head so that the ears are offset gives it vertical depth.
Oh my gosh, that explains why some dogs put their head to one side when you talk to them. They’re not confused, they’re trying to listen to us better. Awww.
