The Glums

Do you remember this photo of Diana and Charles? It's from their last trip together as a married couple, in South Korea, November 1992. Their unhappiness was so evident, the press labeled them the Glums.
I am shooting Menelaus and Helen on Monday, and I sent this photo to the actors, Allan and Denise. I want them to look this miserable together.
You can interpret the story of Helen of Troy all sorts of ways, but I figure she was happy to leave for Paris.

Hm, would that make Paris Didi Fayed and the Paparazzi the Greeks? Or...something like that?

Yeah, something like that.
The same few stories keep replaying, but with different players, eh?

There is a new movie out called Georgiana with Keira Knightly, playing an ancestor of Diana Spencer; apparently there are some parallels.

Ah, yes, I think I'll skip that.... : )
