Orson Welles and Peter O’Toole on Hamlet, BBC 1963. Her skal man stå på tæerne, og det tager man ikke skade af. (Fortsæt evt. med Orson Welles – Interview (1974)

Film legend and Lawrence of Arabia star Peter O’Toole dies at the age of 81. Jeg skrev om O’Toole i august i år, da jeg havde set »Becket or The Honour of God«, som man kan se online.

How can a film, a slice of early history performed by two of stage & screens finest British actors be dated? If they could film this today, the look of it, the feel of it and the language would be the same. There would only be one difference…we could no longer enjoy the extraordinarily fine cast this version gave us…in either primary or supporting roles. The only date this bears is 1964 and it will go down in the annals of film as one of the finest ever crafted and on location!.

Søster, kend din plads

Sådan skulle jeg lige behandle min søster. Women barred from speaking at university seminar og Female students banned from speaking at Islam seminar and forced to walk through separate ’sisters only’ entrance

FEMALE students were banned from speaking during a seminar run by an Islamic society at a leading university. They were also forced to walk through a “sisters only” entrance to attend the event at Queen Mary University of London, and were segregated from men by being seated at the back of the lecture theatre. Queen Mary is in Mile End Road, only about 800 yards or so from Whitechapel and the East London Mosque.

Men were able to ask questions by raising their hands but female students had to write down their queries for Ustadh Abu Abdillah, the speaker of the event, which was hosted by the Queen Mary Islamic Society, and pass them to the front.

One Queen Mary student, a devout Muslim who attended last month’s seminar, titled Deception of the Dunya (world) and which centred on living morally, said she found the experience degrading. “It’s not just about segregation but also about how they’re treating women,” said the first-year arts student, who requested anonymity for fear of being attacked for her views.She said men were also told to avoid making eye contact with the women. “It’s one thing to be segregated, but a whole other thing being told we are not allowed to speak and men being told not to look at the women.

    Förlåt mig om jag svär i kyrkan. Jag har också sett Lawrence of Arabia och Becket. Men tycker ändå att han gjorde sin störtsa roll i det mycket underskattade filmverket Troy/Troja, där han spelar en åldrad kung Priamus. När han förhandlar med Achilles om Hectors döda kropp, är en filmscen som gör både Peter O’Toole och Brad Pitt oförglömlig filmheder. Allt var inte bättre förr. RIP.

    • dette er skam ingen kirke. Tak for tip.

    Tyvärr hittar jag inte följdscenen, där Achilles erkänner att “you are a much better king than the one leading us, but I am still a greek and cannot betray my people. I will grant you twelve days without fighting in honour of the dead.”. Själa stridsscenen mellan Hector och Achilles kan daremot ses här. Inga Hollywoodska överdrifter, utan en trovärdig strid med bronsåldersvapen, som Hector troligen inte kunde vinna.

      Den engelske historiker Michael Wood lavede i 80’erne en helt fantastisk serie for BBC på 6 afsnit á ca. 55 minutter om Den trojanske Krig og den meget spændende og omstridte arkæologiske historie i Troy / Troja
      ( !!! – det var nemlig dengang man tog sig tid og råd til at gøre tingene ordentligt på BBC – i dag ville man
      nok bare have valgt at sjuske sig igennem det “samme” stof på ca. 45 minutter 😀 ). Selv om den nu har snart 30 år på bagen, så kan den stadig ses med meget stort udbytte – man bliver simpelthen bare revet med af denne fascinerende historie, alle intrigerne og mysterierne og den glimrende fortæller.

      ( NB. Bemærk, at afsnittene ikke ligger i korrekt orden på denne side ! )

      Se så også dette BBC Horizon program, der blev lavet i 2004 ( i anledning af premieren på filmen “Troy” )
      om de senere meget interessante arkæologiske opdagelser i Troja.

        Hele serien kan findes andre steder på nettet i en meget bedre kvalitet end den på YouTube –
        den kan varmt anbefales 😉
