The original Comet was approximately the length of the later Boeing 737-100 , but carried fewer people in a significantly more spacious environment. BOAC installed 36 reclining "slumberseats" with 45-inch (1,100 mm) centres on its first Comets, allowing for greater leg room in front and behind;  Air France had 11 rows of seats with four seats to a row installed on its Comets.  Large picture window views and table seating accommodations for a row of passengers afforded a feeling of comfort and luxury unusual for transportation of the period.  Amenities included a galley that could serve hot and cold food and drinks, a bar , and separate men's and women's toilets.  Provisions for emergency situations included several life rafts stored in the wings near the engines, and individual life vests were stowed under each seat. 
The unwillingness of German judges to lock up unsocialized walking time-bombs already known to the police has claimed a victim in Cologne on New Year’s Eve. Two criminal foreigners, free to terrorize their neighbors despite drug-related and violent crimes, killed a Turkish husband and father who tried to get them to behave. It happened in a sector of the city called Bickendorf — a district notorious for years for immigrant violence and bordering on the thoroughly Islamized Ehrenfeld. There was also knife-play at night in the immigrant milieu of right-bank Cologne-Vingst, where “Antifa” pastor Meurer is collecting for the building of a mosque and reading masses against Pro-Köln. But no one was killed.
One of Marco Ferreri’s earliest and most beloved films, “The Ape Woman” is inspired by the true story of 19th-century carnival performer Julia Pastrana. Annie Girardot gives a signature performance as Marie the Ape Woman, an ex-nun whose body is completely covered in black hair. She is discovered at a convent by sleazy entrepreneur Focaccia (Ugo Tognazzi), who marries her and swiftly gets her on the freak show circuit to cash in on her distinctive appearance. A freewheeling satire both hilarious and grotesque, “The Ape Woman” is distinguished by the irreverent wit and anarchic energy of Ferreri’s greatest work. New digital restoration!
