Classical Cats Indeed!

From the letters page of last week's TLS, a short, sharp little note from world-renowned classicist (and current Iowa City resident!) Peter Green:

Whether Noel Coward met Dirk Bogarde in 1939 or 1947, and did, or didn't make a pass at him, and whatever the truth about Bogarde's sex life (or possible lack thereof), in 1954, or so tradition has it, the Master, contemplating a poster advertising both Bogarde and Michael Redgrave in a now mercifully forgotten film entitled The Sea Shall Not Have Them, was heard to observe: "I don't see why not; everybody else has."
