I was tidying my flat yesterday morning and found 1 of my copies of the brentford mercury... the 1 with the photo of the happy couple at the victorian wedding, and i realised there was quite a resemblance...

is it just me or did anybody else fathom that resemblance??

If you're referring to the movie "Titanic" and a character in it: I've studiously avoided seeing it, so I've no idea.

ok, she was a real passenger, her real 1st name was Margaret, and she survived the sinking in 1912... her wiki entry has a nice black and white photo...

I've never seen the film either, but I'm aware that it stars Leonardo "Sproutface" DiCaprio and Kate "I'm so down to earth my arse has road rash" Winslett. I therefore assumed this Molly Brown was the character played by Ms Winslett...... but according to Wikipedia she was played by Kathy Bates....

So, I'm still confused. Are you saying that Raygun looks like Kathy Bates, or the real Margaret "Molly" Brown? Confused

The hat is of similar size and flamboyancy but they look nothing alike.

My cousin's name is Molly Brown (true). Does this help at all?
However, regarding the resemblance, I can't actually see one.
My cousin looks more like her mum.
But not like Raygun's mum.
Who does not look at all like my cousin's mum.
Now. I know people think I look a lot like Brad Pitt.
Or is it Arthur Brown?

Oh. it's good to be back.

I can just see you dressed like this:



Seen him live a few times, he still has an amazing voice...
