    TV and film star Joan Collins is part of a list of celebrities and noteworthy figures due to attend Lady Thatcher's funeral next week, The Commentator has learned. The list released moments ago by Downing Street, includes The First Ministers of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, Falklands veterans, David Frost and Sir Trevor McDonald. Collins was a long-standing fan and supported of Lady Thatcher and recently commented that she subconsciously "had Thatcher at the back of my mind" when playing her Dynasty character Alexis Carrington. In an interview with the Daily Mail, Collins said in 2011, "‘I feel very pessimistic...

    "...Scientists, it seems, have come to an unusual conclusion about the phenomenon of today's 'pretty-boy' actors compared with the he-men of yesteryear. It seems that as the nation's health improves, women's tastes in the men they fancy softens. When health is poor, women go for rugged, tough-looking men, who they expect will give them strong babies. Hence, I suppose, in the Thirties and Forties, during the Depression and the war, they flocked to see Douglas Fairbanks, Victor Mature, Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas and, of course, Mr Uber-Macho, John Wayne. But when a nation's health improves, and life expectancy rises, women...

    What strikes me again and again about these movies is how hunky and masculine the majority of the male stars were. Neanderthal: Joan Collins turned down Richard Burton while making Sea Wife Boom Town was on recently, with the extremely macho co-stars Spencer Tracy and Clark Gable. Although Gable was by far the better looking and taller (he kept referring to Tracy as 'Shorty' in the film) Spencer Tracy was his equal in the he-man department. The same goes for most of the male movie stars from the golden era of Hollywood: Anthony Quinn dancing the tango with Rita...

    A Washington state woman said she is offering a reward for the return of a diamond ring she accidentally dropped into a trick-or-treater's bag. Joan Collins of Camus said she remembered the 2-karat diamond ring getting caught on a plastic pumpkin being carried by a young girl, one of the about 300 trick-or-treaters who visited her home Halloween evening, KPTV, Portland, Ore., reported Thursday. "It snagged, but I didn't feel it come off," she said. "The next day, I said, 'Oh, I don't have my ring on.' I started thinking back and the only thing I could think of was...

    Their vicious onscreen catfights helped turn Dynasty into a 1980s TV hit. Then, last year, Joan Collins, 74, and Linda Evans, 64, reunited to play a pair of feuding former Hollywood stars in a touring play. Now, in an extraordinary one-off extract from her personal diary, Joan reveals the truth about the worst theatrical experience of her life. "Blame the Mexicans!" she says... Spring 2005: New York At last - a funny play that has the perfect role for me. It's called Legends, and my character, Sylvia, is a sharp and witty former Hollywood star who's fallen on hard times....

    A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within, said the American historian Will Durrant about ancient Rome. This self-destruction of values is exactly what is happening in England today. Yes, I still call the country of my birth England, in spite of the peculiar political correctness that insists that it be called 'the UK' and that we, its denizens, must be 'Britons'. Even though the Welsh are proud to call themselves Welsh, as are the Irish and certainly the Scots, woe betide the Briton who calls himself 'English' -- a much-frowned-upon no-no. I...
