It was Humphrey Bogart, her first American leading man, who said, "She makes Marilyn Monroe look like Shirley Temple." It was enough to give her a national profile, and led to a seven-year American film contract with mogul Howard Hughes. Lollobrigida was there when her "Solomon and Sheba" (1959) co-star Tyrone Power collapsed and died on set, leading to Yul Brynner's hiring.

During the 19th century, the prison hulk system was exported to places such as Cork, Dublin, Gibraltar and even Bermuda. In the face of such danger and deprivation, it’s hardly surprising that prison hulks were powder kegs of violence and insurrection.3 months ago History Extra
