Today marks the 71st anniversary of George Bernard Shaw’s death, at age 94 in 1950. What better way to honor him than posting this short video, filmed at the Savoy Hotel in London, England on 27 October 1930. In less than two minutes, the Irish playwright wittily honors another Nobel winner, physicist Albert Einstein in a short speech. (With a hat tip to Neil Silberblatt.)
