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.
