Our Man In Havana (Graham Greene)

Havana, frozen as it is in time since 1959, is a special, exciting and fascinating place to be. The Havana described by Greene from this 1950s slice of fiction is still very much there to see, albeit in its 21st Century version. Anyway, this light hearted novel is uncannily reminiscent of The Tailor of Panama. A spymaster and an expat on the ground in Cuba manage to concoct between them, but entirely without each other’s knowledge, a fantasy international plot, which allows the “source” to receive generous ex-gratis payments, and the spy to convince his masters in the UK that he is doing something useful, thus worthy of a generous budget. The joke wears off when people start to get killed; but they’ve started so they have to finish.

Garfield Gains Weight: His Second Book (Jim Davis)

This series of comic books never get old because every lazy slacker can identify with Garfield. The original newspaper strip debuted on June 19, 1978 in 41 U.S. newspapers.

Oh Yes I Cannes!

Whimsy  is never far away from this blog. But no visitor can argue that I don’t attempt to nourish your minds with some knowledge you may not know. Here is a lady I’d never heard of before today. She was an English actress named Simone Silva, and she wanted to make a big impression at the Cannes Film Festival in 1954. So, with a horrified Robert Mitchum (who recently celebrated his 100th birthday in the spirit world) looking on, she decided to whip ’em out. “I’ll do anything to become a star” was her mantra. These photos were big hits around the planet. Result? No Cannes do! – and she was asked to leave the festival. But she certainly succeeded in making an impression. Maybe even two. And now she makes her debut on highteadreams 63 years later. Magazine covers can be more entertaining than real life. 🙂
