    Unhappy Obituaries

    Susannah York has died. They shoot horses, don't they, is a film that left quite an impact on me. I will have to try and find the DVD of it to remind me why. A talented woman.

    p.s. I used a generic thread title as, following Petchy's suggestion, I though we could add any further demises to this thread.

    Shocked to learn of Susannah Yorks death - a great actress.

    And then, from a different era and area of entertainment, it was announced that the legendry Nat Lofthouse had died.

    Nat Lofthouse. The original one-club man. A terrific goal scoring record for England and a real gent (even in the days when you could barge the goalie into the net along with the ball).
    Susannah York. A very talented lady, and exquisitely beautiful. The nightie scene in The killing of sister George made quite an impression on me when I first got to watch the film. I was a bit too young to see it in 1968 and wouldn't have understood the plot anyway.

    Without doubt my outstanding memory of Susannah (did not know who it was then) was in the film The Battle of Britain. She was in a bedroom scene during a bombing raid in a shirt and stockings and suspenders, staggeringly beautiful (and horny) moment when I first saw it as a kid in Ramsgate one Christmas at the local cinema.

    Still a great moment in the film now.

    That's Van Der Valk, and nothing to do with John Barry.

    I'll let caller decide the most authentic version.

    Back on topic.

    Although the death of this person is already mentioned on the forum, this is the obituary from the telegraph, and gives this man's life story.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obit...-Maha-Bua.html

    A remarkable man.

    Interestingly, he may have had some sway on the military's decision to oust the corrupt government in 2006.

    Quite a lot of sway I think you could say Dave. Although tolerance of others is espoused as a Buddhist precept, Ajahn Maha Bua clearly made an exception in Thaksin's case. From Wikipedia -
    "They complained to me about PM Thaksin and Mr. Visanu and two other people that I don’t remember. This is the big ogre, big power. Atrocious power will swallow our country, bite liver and lungs and aim for the presidency....He will put a torch to the country. He will never listen....This savagery and atrocity appear in every aspect of him.... All he has are things to be used for burning."
    "He is clearly aiming for the presidency now. The monarch trampled, the religion trampled, the country trampled, by this savage and atrocious power in a few people in the government circle. That is the circle of ogres, of ghosts, of trolls, of demons, all in there....So even Devadatta saw the harm he caused, and he was rewarded for his good deed. He would attain Buddhahood. For those who have made mistakes, if we see the harm we cause, we can still get by. But what is it with Thailand? What kind of governance?"
    "They even dare to accuse Luangta Maha Bua of playing politics. Politics, what dog ****. There’s only **** all over the country. I brought the Buddha’s dharma to cleanse in order for them to repent and recognize good and evil. Because they’re the government. The world flatters them as smart people, but don’t be smart down in a toilet. Don’t be smart about putting a torch to the head of everyone in the country, from Nation, Religion, and Monarchy on down. These guys will get burned unless they recognize the truth. I’m saddened by all this. How does this come about?"

    Maria Schneider dies.

    Who? Well she was the actress in Last Tango in Paris. Not a great film in my opinion but the scene where Marlon Brando eulogises his dead father is mesmorising, (or was it is his wife - so long ago now). And I have always liked butter.

    i always looked forward to our trips to his temple to make merit..........and meet with family and friends from across thailand............very special times , and great memories.........he will be greatly missed................in the last year or so he knew his time was near..........
