    And happy birthday to Algernon Charles Swinburne, Melvyn Douglas, Bette Davis, Spencer Tracy, Gregory Peck, Colin Powell, and Roger Corman.

    Au revoir on this day to Douglas MacArthur and Kurt Cobain.

    I LOVE that movie (Alexander Nevsky). It was directed by Eisenstein and stars Nikolai Chirkasov, who was also his Ivan the Terrible.
