Only Connect: A Quick Links Roundup

22 Oct

“Cataloguer’s Note: Yes, it is the Blunt involved in the famous espionage case.” A Pathé clip of the Queen’s Italian art collection.

Streetlaughter has an excellent post on media coverage of Anthony Blunt after his unmasking. What media, exactly, you may ask? Comics. At last my spotty New Yorker reading habits have been vindicated.

Documentation from Guy Burgess’ time at the BBC. My personal favorite is “The Langham Incident,” wherein Burgess opens his hotel room door without a key. (And if anyone should still wonder why authors love these guys after perusing this collection, I really have nothing to say to them.)
