PHOTO: Mark Twain Without His Shirt On
Huffington Post - about 4 years
According to the photographs we have of him, Mark Twain spent a lot of time wearing white suits, frowning and playing billiards. He also loved his cats. He was even filmed by Thomas Edison. But have you ever seen him shirtless? Yeah, you heard. Thanks to the eagle eyes of Open Culture, an image of Sam Clemens seems to have emerged of the American humorist without any clothes on. It's news to us, but of course the internet got their first. Turns out, he's had a Twitter account since September. The reasoning behind such an image seems to have been lost to the vagaries of history, though we'd love to hear your theories. See shirtless Mark Twain:

Tony on TV - 9th May
Chad - almost 5 years
MAY’s the month for two of the many annual checks on TV and it does not need a doctor tell you that there’s a lot of old tat on screen among the many TV gems. The first clinic was hosted by Philip Schofield on ITV last week as the British Soap Awards 2012 shone the spotlight on the country’s most popular TV genre in 17 categories voted for by the long-suffering public or by a panel of judges. In the end it turned out to be seven awards apiece for ‘EastEnders’ and ‘Coronation Street’ with the residents of Albert Square cheering on Pam St Clement who scooped the Lifetime Achievement Award as Walford’s late and much-missed Pat Butcher while viewers voted it the Best British Soap, no doubt for being consistently bleak and depressing. That charge can’t be levelled at ‘Corrie’ which had the Sexiest Female -- Michelle Keegan (Tina McIntyre) and Villain of the Year -- Andrew Lancel (Frank Foster) as well as being tops for comedy, thanks to Stephanie Cole (Sylvia Goodwin).

    Age 50
    Clement has stated that she had been in touch with her father, who died in 1993, aged 84, but he had never mentioned having any other children.
    More Details Hide Details Her brother had barely known their father and had not seen him since he was a toddler. Clement has been the focus of much media criticism regarding her weight over the years, which earned her character the nickname "Fat Pat". In 1998 she lost several stone from dieting, which led the media to speculate that she had become ill. She later commented: "I have since decided I wasn't made to be slim. When I was thinner the paparazzi got some pictures where I looked ill. I had to come out and speak about it."
  • FORTIES
  • 1986
    Age 43
    In 1986 Clement was cast in her most notable role to date—Pat Butcher, the troublesome former prostitute and ex-wife of Pete Beale (Peter Dean), in BBC's EastEnders.
    More Details Hide Details She played the character continuously since her first appearance on 12 June 1986 — over a year after the show began. Clement's character was originally brought in on a trial basis for a period of three episodes. However the series' executive-producer, Julia Smith, decided to make the character long term. Clement initially had reservations about committing to the role, commenting: "I couldn't envisage how this character, who creates absolute havoc everywhere she goes and is not at home with herself or with anybody else in the Square, could possibly fit in". However she was persuaded to continue by Smith, who said: "'We've only seen one layer of the onion skin—the defensiveness—now we'll start to peel away more and get to the vulnerability that lies behind it'." Pat went on to become one of the soap's longest running characters, appearing in 2,183 episodes. She featured in a multitude of high-profile storylines, which included four marriages—most notably to Frank Butcher (played by Mike Reid) — numerous affairs, feuds and a spell in prison for drink-driving (which led to a pedestrian dying). Clement has commented that her long run in the show has surprised even her "You are talking to a person who wouldn't sign a West End contract if it was longer than a year It's madness I have stuck with it so long because I am always looking to see where they take the character next".
  • THIRTIES
  • 1976
    Age 33
    During the 1960s Clement was married to a man named Andrew Gordon, but they divorced in 1976.
    More Details Hide Details
    Her first big break came in 1976, when she was cast in an episode of TV prison drama, Within These Walls.
    More Details Hide Details Subsequent television credits have included: Van der Valk (1977); A Horseman Riding By as Meg Potter (1978); Emmerdale Farm (1980) as Mrs. Anne Eckersley; Thomas & Sarah (1980); Enemy at the Door (1978; 1980); Play For Today (1980); Minder (1980); Shoestring (1980); Dangerous Davies (1981); Angels (1981); as Frau Bodelschwingh in Private Schulz (1981); The Chinese Detective (1982);The Tripods (1984) and Hammer House of Mystery and Suspense (1986).

  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1942
    Born
    Shortly after Clement's birth in 1942, her mother died of tuberculosis, and she was put into foster care when her father remarried.
    More Details Hide Details Clement subsequently grew up in various different foster homes until she was taken in by a family who owned a farm in Devon. She has commented: "I was very fortunate in the end. I was always being farmed off to holiday homes, then when I was just pre-teens I went down to Devon to some people who were very good at taking on youngsters, and what originated as a business arrangement became my home." Clement's father rose to become the managing director of a toy manufacturers in London and was married five times. Clement was sent to boarding school on the South Downs, where she was—by her own admission—"very naughty". She was active in the drama society at her school, but she originally had aspirations to become a vet, however this career proved unobtainable because she didn't pass Latin at school. Instead she decided to become a teacher and enrolled at the Rolle Teacher Training College in Exmouth (now part of the University of Plymouth). She worked in the teaching profession until her desire to act prompted her to attend drama school, the Rose Bruford College, and she eventually took up acting professionally.
