    No very well known and I deliberately used a childhood pic as he is an icon.



    Strangely one of the most famous film characterisations of him is in a comedy.

    I always liked the sound of consumption - I thought you got it by consuming lots of things

    But then I found that it really means pulmonary tuberculosis (T

    Not so much fun

    Yes, when 19th c. characters like Camille, Mimi, and Violetta were dying of consumption, it seemed tragically romantic and mysterious.



    But as you say, the reality is terrible. I thought TB was on the wane, but reports that it is on the rise in certain parts of the world are very distressing, not just for the victims but also because TB is an infectious disease. *shudder*



    Best,
