Who is terrible – Lion or Alfred?
This unusual photo was made in 1957. At dinner, the great and terrible Alfred Hichkok, Matcher Suspense, and the King of Beasts – Lion. Moreover, not an ordinary lion, and the very, famous, from the screen saver Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Predator called Leo (what an unexpected name is true?), and he became a symbol of MGM just in 1957.
I must say that Lviv in the MGM screensaver was a lot. For the first time, a predator appeared in it in 1916, when the artist Howard Ditz came up with a logo with silent lion. It was called him – Silent Lion. The fact is that all the movie then was dumb. And then in different years, other lions were demonstrated from the movie screens: Telly, Slats, Jackkey, Coffee, George and Tanner. And they buried loudly. Previously, "My Planet" talked about the five unusual fate of animals from movies.
In this video you can see the scenes of the daily life of Paris in the 1890-1900s.

Akali (this name is translated as "immortal") – Armed Order, who fought for the purity of faith. It originated in the north-west of India in the XVII century in the medium of radical sikh priests, who believed that their religion needs to be protected with weapons in hand. Akali usually conducted a wonderful lifestyle, traveled alone or large groups. Moreover, money for food was earned very unusual (for spiritual persons) in the way: either rely on donations, or simply took away from a simple people what they needed.
Akali is known for their high turbans. They are called "Dastar Bung" and are often richly decorated with chakras – combat throwing discs. Previously, they could also be supplied with iron claws, which were struck by enemies on the battlefield. Nowadays, Akali has become a combat community to religious and cultural, but their traditions are preventing their traditions (read the material "My Planet" about the rules of life of Sikhov). Members of the Order are often carrying on their turbans miniature versions of five types of weapons: chakra (throwing disc), Khandu (sword or Palash), Kirp (ceremonial dagger), ceremonial (saber) and tire (arrow).
