Cary Grant's 'friendship' with the devastatingly handsome Randolph Scott was remarkably open and fairly candid in the dangerously oppressed 1930s.There were several photo shoots for the fan magazines of the two 'merry bachelors,' who for several years shared a beach house in Santa Monica, as well as a mansion in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles, which was commonly referred to in the press as 'Bachelor Hall,' both before, during, and after their seven marriages to women they had seven between them.
A 55 feet high (16m) glass church in the shape of a high-heeled shoe has been built in Taiwan, apparently in a bid to attract more women. A huge glass... what?
Yes, you read that right: a glass church, shaped just like a vast high-heeled shoe as if lost by a titan Cinderella while racing through the coastal province of Chaiyi. Made out of over 320 tinted glass panels, the shiny blue building measures more than 36 feet (10m) wide and cost about $686,000 dollars.
Sweden's Prince Carl Philip has married a former reality-TV star and glamour model in a lavish ceremony in the chapel at Stockholm's Royal Palace. Sofia Hellqvist, 30, also worked as a topless model and a yoga instructor before helping to set up a charity. Her new husband, 36-year-old Carl Philip, is third in line to the throne.
Thousands of well-wishers lined the streets for the event, despite polls suggesting the Swedish royal family's popularity is waning. The new bride appears to have adjusted quickly to the pomp and ceremony of royal life. After their marriage ceremony, the couple took to a horse-drawn carriage to parade through the cobbled streets of Stockholm's old town, waving to crowds in the hot summer sun, before returning to the palace for a 21-gun salute and wedding banquet. About 550 guests attended the ceremony, many of them royals, including Princess Takamado of Japan and Britain's Prince Edward.
Curators at London's Wellcome Collection will not be surprised if lines form outside their new "Institute of Sexology" exhibition. "It's free and it's got sex in the title," co-curator Kate Ford said Wednesday. The collection is mostly a witty look at the study of human sexuality, featuring notables from Sigmund Freud to Playboy founder Hugh Hefner and director Woody Allen.
It also has serious elements, including searing black-and-white film footage of the Nazis burning the library of noted German sex researcher Magnus Hirschfeld in 1933. "He was openly gay and Jewish, so a natural (Nazi) target," Ford said. The new exhibit is named after Hirschfeld's original Institute of Sexology to honor him and other sex research pioneers.
