Poirot’s cuff links… also tracked down :)

You may remember the tracking down of Poirot’s silver-and-amethyst ring, and a link for purchasing, which was featured on this blog awhile ago. I now must thank  David Hart, fellow Poirot aficionado and avid prop-hunter, for bringing a new acquisition of his to my attention. He writes:

“I was able to find cuff links that are all but identical to Poirot’s. I found them on eBay and the only discernible difference is that his are double sided while these only have a gem on one side. They also match the ring you led me to perfectly!”

Here’s the picture!

And sure enough, a bit of eBay searching of my own led me to what looks like the same thing. Link here! Looks like they have multiple product they relist.

Thanks, David!

Behind the Lens: My Life in Photos (by David Suchet)

I was idly seaching Book Depository (my go-to online bookstore) when this awfully intriguing book description came up…

“In the early days of my career, I didn’t think I stood a hope in hell. Look at me: I’m short, stocky, slightly overweight, deep of voice, passionate, dark haired, olive skinned, hardly your typical Englishman. What chance did I have, going into the world of British theatre?”

David Suchet has been a stalwart of British stage and screen for fifty years. From Shakespeare to Oscar Wilde, Freud to Poirot, Edward Teller to Doctor Who, Harold Pinter to Terence Rattigan, Questions of Faith to Decline and Fall, right up to 2019’s The Price, David has done it all. Throughout this spectacular career, David has never been without a camera, enabling him to vividly document his life in photographs. Seamlessly combining photo and memoir, Behind the Lens is the story of David’s remarkable life, showcasing his wonderfully evocative photographs and accompanied by his insightful and engaging commentary.

In Behind the Lens, David discusses his London upbringing and love of the city, his Jewish roots and how they have influenced his career, the importance of his faith, how he really feels about fame, his love of photography and music, and his processes as an actor. He looks back on his fifty-year career, including reflections on how the industry has changed, his personal highs and lows, and how he wants to be remembered. And, of course, life after Poirot and why he’s still grieving for the eccentric Belgian detective.
