Iron Man [2008] directed by Jon Favreau, starring Robert Downey Jr, Jeff Bridges & Gwyneth Paltrow.

I have a tendency to enjoy things on the dark side of life, so when I saw this mentioned on Deanna Raybourn’s blog I just had to go and have a look, and so I now know that roughly 124,066 people died worldwide on the day I was born!

People who have died on January 31 over the years include:

  • Bonnie Prince Charlie (of Jacobite rebellion fame) in 1788
  • John Galsworthy (of Forsyte Saga fame) in 1933
  • AA Milne (of Winnie the Pooh fame) in 1956
  • Moira Shearer (of Red Shoes fame) in 2006

Gives a whole new perspective on the day, but won’t stop me enjoying the cake and party hats when the next one rolls around!

Scottish, in my fifties, love books but not always able to find the time to read them as much as I would like. I’m based in London and happily married to the Book God.

I also blog at Bride of the Screen God (all about movies and TV) and The Dowager Bride, if you are interested in ramblings about stuff of little consequence
