Watched BEHIND THE CANDELABRA, a biopic about Liberace, which was surprisingly good. Michael Douglas gave a very impressive vocal imitation, and repellent as he was, Liberace actually came across as strangely likeable at times. Wotta  weirdo, though. Imagine insisting your lover have plastic surgery to look more like you!
Also caught another amazingly weird oldie on Talking Pictures. 1934's BROKEN BLOSSOMS, with Emlyn Williams .looking a bit like Angela Rippon, playing a Chinese.
I found out what happened to the deceased neighbour, M, from his grandson who was clearing out the flat (' How could he have a grandson? He was gay.'- R Next Door) Poor old feller was diabetic, alcoholic, and got pneumonia.  'That is why I worry so much about YEW'. sez R, 'Old people are always dying of pneumonia.'
Must say I'm intrigued by the news of John Paul II's long romantic friendship with a laydee. Right from the time he became Pope, I'd always wondered how such an obviously sexual man had ever wanted to become a priest. He really had an unusually strong sensuality about him. Some people just radiate 'it'.
