Avenging Melancholia

This is very much apropos of nothing, but I caught an episode of “The Avengers” (“Mit Schirm, Charme und Melone” in Germany) on arte this morning and recognized, alongside Diana Rigg’s Emma Peel and Patrick Macnee’s John Steed, a 31-year-old Donald Sutherland and a 20-year-old Charlotte Rampling and all I could think was, “I wonder if Kiefer and Charlotte talked about that on the set of ‘Melancholia,’ where they played mother- and son-in-law?”

    • Interesting theory. They do have a lot in common: Both were born between 1935 and 1943, both are either Canadian or English and both were married to either Mary Steenburgen or Shirley Douglas. Can’t all be coincidences!
