ARTHUR GILBERT is as casual as his art collection is ornate. He receives visitors to the Beverly Hills office of his Gilbert Financial Corp. seated in a crimson-and-gold-upholstered chair, but behind the Florentine inlaid desk, he's wearing tennis shorts and Reeboks.

Even at the age of 85, or perhaps especially at 85, you want to get it right when you kneel down before the queen of England to accept a knighthood. Arthur Gilbert was leaving nothing to chance. His morning coat and top hat were ready, of course, and a car was ordered to take him to Buckingham Palace on time. He had also borrowed a videotape of a friend's investiture and memorized the moves for today's ceremony. Clearly, he had been practicing.
