I am doing always so with my corpses, gehts powder on it and from, without Acid and without „offensive Odor“. Indeed, there is still a bit Background Info to Leichenenthaarungsanzeige, apparently there was at that time a lot of companies for corpses depilation without razor:

The magazine is Casket & Sunnyside for January 1912, and there are ample references to it in Charles Addams [Addams Family] and Jessica Mitford. The worry for the consideration of the cost of a shave (15 cents) for a dead person seems quite an inescapable weirdness and luxury. The weirdness of the name of the company nearly obscures it common nature–it isn’t exactly the Acme Corpse Company, but it is close to it, and it addresses just one small bit of minuatiae of deadness in the vast sea of Dead, Inc.

The sellers of the razorless post-mortem shave equipment didn’t receive a patent for their process–nor did anyone else, for that matter, at least so far as I can determine.

Sir John Hurt mit 77 Years died

Just in we celebrated his birthday, now we have to say goodbye to John Hurt. „the Elephant Man“, „1984“, „Alien“ or „Dame, king, as, Spy“ – Hurt excelled always. A great actor, hit its always melancholy countenance an immediately under the spell. John Hurt was in its experimental, inquisitive work many loud and silent, But always impressive other ways, to express his characters. All the same, where Hurt appeared, he remained in the memory, He was great in the small rollers.

Eccentric and outcast, mistaken autocrats and tortured resisters: The actor John Hurt immersed himself body and soul into the depths of human nature. No other performer of his generation embodied pain and injury as intense as the 1940 born Briton. Hurt urged his game never forward, was never a man of the first series as his friends and drinking companions Oliver Reed and Peter O'Toole and yet his best roles were burning deep into the collective movie memory: the „Elefantenmensch“ Joseph Merrick, Gay-Ikone Quentin Crisp, Winston Smith in „1984“ or the Roman Emperor Caligula were just some of his most famous roles, he personified. The entire range of human weakness and fragility could embody Hurt with the forcefulness of his early wrinkles furrowed face and sinewy Drahtigkeit his physique. In each of his roles he immersed himself completely, no matter how deep the abyss seemed.

The son of an Anglican vicar Hurt grew up in sanctimonious ratios in the English county of Lincolnshire. The father was aloof, the youngest of three siblings hung Hurt the coattails of his mother, but drove already as an altar in worship all sorts of jokes, when he censers deliberately overcrowded, to the community and to enable einzunebeln fainted. However, at the Church's Prep School, he failed and was sent to a public school. A culture shock, the Hurt deeply impressed: The authoritarian rigor of teacher, the brutality of bullies in the schoolyard, the constant swearing – Hardening of the working class, which had hitherto been unknown to the sheltered son of a pastor. Hurt retreated into fantasy worlds back and developed, teased and intimidated, his flair for Underdogs. 1966 discovered director Fred Zinnemann stages- and television actor and gave him a supporting role as Richard Rich in the novel adaptation „A Man for All Seasons“.

His breakthrough he experienced after many smaller roles and several years as a member of the ensemble at the Royal Shakespeare Company, however, only 1975 for his starring role as scene size Quentin Crisp in the TV biopic „The Naked Civil Servant“. Gay cinema was still there in the seventies, aloof to establish voyeurism or didactics, so Hurts fearless, made bitchy-flamboyant portrayal of queer icon stir. The following year, he shocked television audiences again with his outright wrong Caligula in „I, Claudius“, the crawled to his dying grandmother to bed and his pregnant sister the unborn child cut from the belly. Three years later, Hurt won with his portrayal of inmate Max in Alan Parker's prison shocker „Midnight Express“ a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor and an Oscar nomination. 1979 followed one of Hurts shortest, but spectacular theater performances. In Ridley Scott's space thriller „Alien“ he plays the pitiful crewmember Kane, the for a greedy ate spaghetti dinner the first horror-Creature from the chest breaks. The shock on Kane's face, in the mix of pain and disbelief, is scarier than the grandiose special effects in this scene.

With physical infirmity it was also Hurt 1980 In David Lynch „the Elephant Man“ doing. He played, virtually unrecognizable under monstrous deformations, the affected by the rare Lymphstörung elephantiasis British Joseph Merrick (called in the film John). His outcry at the film went to the marrow: „I’m not an animal. I’m a human being!“ The touching, often compared with Boris Karloff classic Frankenstein performance performance earned Hurt another Oscar nomination. Under the heavy mask alone pained, thrown back frightened or contemptuous glances and gestures, designed Hurt so pitiful as graceful figure. With the same sensitivity Hurt made also with poetry against the authoritarian „Big Brother“-Regime Reluctant individual Winston Smith for acting event. As Michael Radford's adaptation of George Orwell's Gesellschaftsdystopie „1984“ came to the movies in the same year, the suffering and the frailty of his movie characters reflected long and in private life John Hurts: His longtime companion Marie-Lise Volpeliere-Pierrot died 1983 in a riding accident. Hurt succumbed to alcohol, he was fond of uncertainty since its inception.

In later years career Hurt excelled as an experienced and reliable supporting actors and speakers in dozens of roles: remain unforgotten its minimum, but effective as inserts wandmaker Mr Ollivander in two parts of the Harry Potter series, but also concise roles in Lars von Trier „Melancholia“ and as intelligence chief in the Le Carré adaptation „Dame, king, ass, Spy“. ambition, He said once the „Guardian“, had never been his thing. „I have incredibly ambitious people observed: At the moment of success Knowledge they just, where to go, You know, how to deal with it and then the fun begins for them. Toll. But I was not working.“ in July 2015 He was of Queen Elizabeth II. knighted. Religious was four times married, now never been despite his childhood imprint for many years dry cricket fan.

V for Vendetta High Chancellor Scenes

John Hurt died in the Night to Saturday in London of complications from pancreatic cancer disease. A year ago he had in the UK Press was confident, to beat cancer. I can not enumerate, in as many genre films the man was involved, most famous have been mentioned, but are also next to Kane in Ridley Scott's Alien, a role which he himself verarschte again in Spaceballs, Sam Peckinpah in „The Osterman Weekend“ called or he borrowed the hare in Hazel „Watership Down“ his voice and said Aragorn in Ralph Bakshi's animated Hobbit. Hurt remained SciFi and Fantasy immertreu, was the leader of the insurgents in „Snowpiercer“ and of course the diabolical Great Chancellor in „V for Vendetta“. John Hurt was truly a legend of the genre film. A very great actor leaves the stage. Rest in peace. Thanks for all the Magic, John.

Who does not remember their memorable and selbstrefferenziellen guest appearance in Wes Craven horror-Sequel „Scream 3“ or connecting nut Mrs.. Crenshaw from Sorority Row (Sorority Row)? Carrie was not just the Princess of Alderaan, but a talented, complicated, infinitely funny, successful woman in Hollywood, deserve their impressive career honor.

Carrie Fisher Roasts George Lucas at AFI Life Achievement Award

Fisher told in her book „Wishful Drinking“ a story, which led to the quotation, she wanted in her obituary:

Anyway, George comes up to me the first day of filming and he takes one look at the dress and says, ‚You can’t wear a bra under that dress.‘

So, I say, ‚okay, I’ll bite. Why?‘

And he says, ‚Because… there’s no underwear in space.‘

I promise you this is true, and he says it with such conviction too! Like he had been to space and looked around and he didn’t see any bras or panties or briefs anywhere.
Now, George came to my show when it was in Berkeley. He came backstage and explained why you can’t wear your brassiere in other galaxies, and I have a sense you will be going to outer space very soon, so here’s why you cannot wear your brassiere, by George. So, what happens is you go to space and you become weightless. So Far So Good, right? But then your body expands??? But your bra doesn’t- so you get strangled by your own bra. Now I think that this would make a fantastic obit- so I tell my younger friends that no matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.

She had often struggle in life with their disease, but her funny and relaxed approach and commitment as an advocate helped. Not only her. In appearance at twitter was always funny, their creative writing for years as kryptisch legendary. As no second coined Carrie Fisher heroines figure of cinema.

In „Rogue One“, the film, which tells the history of Episode IV and is currently running in theaters, Fisher's for a few seconds as a very young Leia to see again thanks to digital magic and she speaks a single word: „Hope“. One might think, that their life mission is summed up in this scene, to be forever young and forever hoping to Donate. But to appreciate Carrie Fisher's life, ie, them as fictional and as real heroine, As Boy to keep princess and old Rebellin remembered. Thank you, Carrie. take care. May the Force be with you… Always.
