Freddie Mercury, of course. Or one of the blokes off the 118 advert.

Apologies if I've messed up another search and missed a recent post elsewhere but...

Lucan's brother turned up on that bastion of deep-research and flawless journalism Inside Out on BBC 1 this week claiming "Lucky" died about nine years ago and is buried in Africa. S'cuse the cynicism but going on the accuracy previous claims of blood relatives about Lucan's fate I'm not convinced!

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Da man that is Sacha Baron Cohen has just finished filming a biopic of Freddie Mercury and apparently he is rather good.
Maybe he should be booked for back to back gigs & given The Lord Lucan role, I think he would do the sinister side of Lucan really well.
If destiny's kind......... I've got the rest of my mind.

Perfect Passing has hit on a great idea above. The biopic, however, would surely get mired in a whelter of conflicting interests all denying the film-makers any opportunity to finish the story accurately.

Forget biopic I am thinking event theatre.

You have the basic play about the disappearance of LL and then right at the end an old bloke in the audience with a bushy moustache stands up and says "Absolute Rubbish, what really happened was..." at which point the theatre doors crash open and the old bloke is dragged roughly away by half a dozen police officers, the lights come up and the cast shuffle off the stage.

I was thinking that all the multi award winning films are the really deep ones that provoke people to concentrate on what they are watching.

The biopic could tell the 'Lucky Lucan' story from all different kinds of angles, the nannies story, the wife's, the kids, lucky's himself and the established friends that even obviously felt obliged to assist him.
If the people that made the TV series 'Lost' got involved the film could jump back & fourth in time and really get people thinking, did he/did'nt he do it, and could finish with conclusion.
Or the full story could be told through the journey of his wrist watch!

Anyways, forget Mackintosh, we need Spielberg or Ridley Scott for this epic.

We just need a really good attention grabbing title!

Biblio has a corker above, it could be life the Jeffery Archer play where different results occur on different nights. FFS, I hate theatre and I'd go to that!
