Dr Bhagavan Antle of The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (T.I.G.E.R.S), photographs 4 varieties of Bengal tigers
I’m currently reading his biography on a forum, and I’m crying like a baby and then, I read this:
“One incident that David Burke recounted brought the house down at The Northern Musgraves’ Jeremy Brett Memorial Lunch. It is a tale that reveals not only Brett’s humour and eccentricity, but also his endearing, self-effacing qualities:
JB: I was feeling so low the other day that I sent myself a fan letter.
DB: Are you serious?
JB: I’m absolutely serious.
DB: What did you write to yourself?
JB: “Dear Jeremy,
I would just like to say what a wonderful actor you are. Your Sherlock Holmes puts every other attempt at the part in the shade. Basil Rathbone is not fit to clean your boots; and Douglas Wilmer and Robert Stephens should beg you to give them lessons. You’re much prettier than all of them, for a start. There is only one word for your performance — magic. Please send me a signed photograph.
P.S. I’ve heard that you’re really a nice person, too.”
DB: Did you really write that?
JB: Yes, I did.
DB: Did you send it?
JB: Yes. I put a first-class stamp on it. I wanted to get it as soon as possible. It came the next morning.
DB: And did you read it?
JB: Of course I read it. I read it a dozen times. I felt wonderful afterwards.
DB: Well, did you send yourself a signed photograph?
JB: David, I may be mad — but I’m not barking mad! In any case, the bugger didn’t send a stamped addressed envelope!
And I’m feeling better now.
I have to sit down for a couple of years and process all the emotions that this news has brought me
Here’s also link to the article in Huffington Post!
Ian McKellen Will Play Sherlock Holmes For Bill Condon In ‘A Slight Trick Of The Mind’
“McKellen will play Holmes in 1947 as an aging and “retired” detective who goes back to solve the one case that got away. The press release describes his situation like so: “With his legendary mental powers on the wane, and without his old sidekick Watson, Holmes is faced with the toughest case of his life — a case that might finally reveal to him the mysteries of the human heart.”
Buster Keaton tidies up a pair of safety goggles in this POV shot from The Scribe. Eleanor Keaton opposed her husband’s involvement with the project due to his deteriorating health, but the headstrong comic was keen to take part nonetheless. One of the many industrial films he acted in during the latter half of his life, it was shot in late 1965 and released the following January. Buster enjoyed his work but his condition continued to decline during the shooting and he was prone to uncontrollable coughing fits. In February he would pass away from lung cancer. The resulting picture shows a relatively spry looking Keaton recreating many of his best known gags as he inadvertently wreaks havoc on a construction site. [x]
