Quote from: Phoenix Lazarus on May 16, 2022, 08:50:33 AMIt's notable what a fondness he had for the sentimental or high-flown, in contrast to his actual nature.In this one, he is the man who came back from death and was a little special for it. There seems an implied comparison to Christ's resurrection.Here is Savile the benign observer of and appreciator of nature and small animals.Savile, who feels gentle love for those who follow him and those who he sees dying. Again, these seem implied comparisons with Christ, with celestial allusions further that seem to imply he is beyond this world.Here is Savile as sensitive and grief-afflicted and expressing that in poignant metaphors.Here is Savile the religious man who knows his Bible and repeats psalms.Here is Savile the man who knows all human experience and Savile the man with a great life ('my days come and go, all filled with a fullness that is too much'), with nautical metaphors that implies he navigates Life's seas with great skill. There is an implied Olympian detachment in the second quote ('....I wonder why I am never moved to any great emotion....') which subtly indicates a degree of superiority.In this quote he talks of 'conjuring.' Although metaphorically used, it gives not only a suggestion of Savile as a gifted verbal artist when writing but a subliminal general impression of someone with special powers.Here he talks of others believing he is possessed by spirits, again suggesting he is other to this world in some way.In this one, alluding to a near-miss while recording poisonous snakes for a radio show, he implies he may be immortal.

Quote from: Phoenix Lazarus on May 10, 2022, 07:19:14 AMI bet he'd drop all that and be really smarmy and sycophantic.
Quote from: Phoenix Lazarus on May 15, 2022, 01:54:09 PMThis story is weird. How would so many people just happen to have autograph books with them? Why would the worker at the service station have a pillow case with her?

Here's the text of his hand-written reply, postmarked 17/05/2010: In haste Ian, I always thought the car was destroyed as part of the film. It was a favourite of mine, but, being a lucky ex-coalminer it was one of 17 new ones so don't know if it's about - sorry. Great memories! Sincerely, Sir Jimmy.Try as I might I cannot work out where in the finished film the car would have been destroyed. So, if anyone out there knows the whereabouts (or fate) of this car then please let me know here. Many thanks.
