Gina Lollobrigida Calls For Toyboy Lover To Be Jailed


Sean Connery Humphrey Bogart Gina Lollobrigida

Javier Rigau y Rafols, who denies charges of fraud and forgery, went on trial in May (15) and faces six years in prison if convicted of falsely obtaining the 1960s screen siren's signature on a document authorising their marriage under Italian law.

Lollobrigida has been absent from the proceedings, but she headed to the court in Rome when the case resumed this week (ends18Sep15) to face the Spanish businessman, who she claims staged a fake marriage ceremony in Spain in 2010 with a woman pretending to be the actress.

The 88 year old dated Rafols, who is 34 years her junior, for around 20 years and they announced plans to wed in 2006, but Lollobrigida insists she later changed her mind and was duped into signing a document legalising the Spanish wedding ceremony.

Tupac Shakur's Final Words Were 'F**k You,' Other Famous Last Words


Tupac Shakur John Lennon Humphrey Bogart

The dying words of rapper Tupac Shakur have been revealed, 18 years after his death. The words were spoken to sergeant Chris Carroll, the policeman who questioned Shakur on the scene after the fatal shooting on September 7, 1996. Carroll told how he found the rapper, “covered with blood” and proceeded to try and find out what had happened: “So I’m looking at Tupac…I’m asking him, ‘Who shot you? What happened? Who did it?’ And he was just kind of ignoring me…All of a sudden in the snap of a finger, he changed…An ‘I’m at peace’ type of thing. When he made that transition, he looked at me, and he’s looking me right in the eye.”

So, what profundity did Tupac, the voice of a generation, a rapper capable of penning poetic and poignant lyrics, have to say as his final words? Carroll continued, “That’s when I looked at him and said one more time, ‘Who shot you?’ He looked at me and he took and breath…then the words came out: ‘F**k you’.” And with his final act of defiance towards the police, the rapper died.

Humphrey Bogart Executors Hit With New Lawsuit


Humphrey Bogart

Humphrey Bogart's executors have been counter-sued by bosses at fashion house Burberry over the use of the icon's image.

Bogart's estate officials threatened legal action against the retailer last month (Apr12) after an image of the actor wearing a Burberry trenchcoat in classic movie Casablanca was used in a recent promotional campaign on Facebook.com.

But on Wednesday (02May12) Burberry fired back by filing legal documents against the executors at a New York federal court, claiming First Amendment protection.

And Bogart Llc attorney Michael O. Crain isn't pleased, stating, "Just as Burberry needed to obtain (Burberry model) Emma Watson's consent before using her name and image to promote Burberry's brand and products, it needed to obtain permission from the Bogart Estate to use Humphrey Bogart's name and image in its social media marketing campaign."

Sabrina Review


Weak
I'm afraid your opinion of Billy Wilder's 1954 romantic comedy classic Sabrina depends on your opinion of Audrey Hepburn. And even if you find her enchanting, a delicate flower, you may have a tough road to hoe.

Hepburn plays the title character, a shy girl who's desperately in love with David Larrabee (William Holden), a rakish Long Island playboy whose too busy chasing skirts and getting married to notice the wispy chauffeur's daughter. Nearly suicidal over David's lack of attention, she reluctantly goes to cooking school in Paris for a couple of years. It's time well spent. She meets a wealthy baron, gets a great new wardrobe, and secures some self-confidence. "I've learned how to live of the world and in the world," she writes her father before leaving Paris.
