Swing That Lamp

Old times - well "only" six or so years ago, there were some interesting posts kicked off by a mention of Tyrone Power who appeared in a film about Trieste called "Diplomatic Courier".

I don't intend to go over them all but, if you have a few minutes, type any of the keywords into the search box, just above, you'll see what I mean. It's possible to click on "See entire thread" to do just that. Sadly not all the people are still with us but that, in itself, is salutary.

Re: Swing That Lamp

As a film fan I was always impressed by Tyrone Power,s good looks.I had other thoughts however when I read Bob Monkhouse-s autobiography some years later when Bob whilst recalling his visit to the U.S.claimed that whilst taking a bath in Power-s house(at Powers-s invitation)had to fight off his attempt to get in to the bath with him.Monkhouse dressed in record time,so he said,and left hurriedly to find other accommodation
