Yeah, I really loved her in Black Narcissus too. I also thought she was great in The Innocents.

Black Narcissus has always been my favorite Powell/Pressburger.

Here is a nice photo gallery.

Evel Knievel

Evel Knievel's fame as a motorcycle daredevil has come at a terrible price: multiple fractures of many of his bones. 14 open-reduction surgeries (to repair or replace bones, some with steel screws, pins or rods) and, over his career, 36 months in the hospital. While Evel Knievel never actually broke "every bone in his body," he holds the Gunniess World Record for the most broken bones: 35!

"It is better to take a chance in life to win a victory or suffer defeat even though scarred by failure... than to live in the shadow of life as some do never knowing a victory or defeat because they have not the guts to try either! " -- Theodore Roosevelt quoted by Evel Knievel

Sorry, it was a diagram of all the bones Evel had broken.
I don't know how it did that because when I view the photo link in the browser or in the preview on here it works fine.

The picture is on this page
