    Of course Charles looking tearful could be down to a combination of things. He's bound to be affected by Harry's behaviour, Harry's his son after all and Chas will also be upset that his sons have fallen out. Then Philip might have had a few choice words to say about it all which could have been hurtful.

    Well, like I said, Phil's nearly 100 years old and in poor health. Charles isn't stupid, he knows the old boy will die soon. Of course it will be getting to him. Doesn't mean it's imminent though.

    47. Vanessa Redgrave

    And as I've said before, it's very silly because acting is one profession where one's sex is relevant. If you are casting a male role you are almost always looking for a male actor, and a female actor for a female role. So it is practical and convenient to have words which distinguish between the two.

    No, I remember that quite clearly because I was in the house of the old boy next door. He was a fan of the QM (she had spoken to him a few times at the races). The TV was on, and there was something like "We are going over to the newsroom for an important announcement". He was like, whatever can it be? - and I said straight away, "The Queen Mother's died." It just seemed the most likely thing. When I said it, he went "No! " in disbelief as if it was impossible that an old woman of 101 might have died ....

    Hmm... I wouldn't have thought going in for observation would count as being seriously ill. Perhaps he has suspicions too. Thing is, Phil's nearly 100 years old and in poor health. Charles isn't stupid, he knows the old boy will die soon. Doesn't mean it's imminent though.

    47. Vanessa Redgrave

    At least they agree with me on something that's been discussed here before: Vanessa Redgrave: Well, may I say, you’re the same. It’s true of any good actress. By the way, Guardian, could you stop calling actresses “actors”? Miriam Margolyes: Yes, I’m an actress! On my passport I’m an actress.

    A Night To Remember

    The eve of the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic seems a good time to consider the status of the cast of the 1958 film "A Night To Remember". Still thought by many to be the best Titanic film, it is packed with famous names and familiar faces, many uncredited. (I still haven't managed to spot Sean Connery, mind you.) Below, courtesy of IMDB, is the complete cast list (or so it says). I've attached year of death where applicable, and year of birth where no death is indicated. The latter are highlighted in red. Names in green are those for whom no dates are supplied by IMDB. Please note all the data is taken from IMDB and I have not cross-checked any of it, so there may be some errors. I have not included film crew, but note that all the principals (director, writers, producer) have departed.

    Two for each continent

    Agree. I'd play if it was one per continent. ETA - No, I'm out. It spoils the game when people post their selections openly before anyone else has even thought about it.

    Dying Bigots

    That's the original meaning of the word, which can still apply. Look at definition 2b. That covers the more general usage.
