Obituaries: Sir Dirk Bogarde

LIKE GARBO before him, Dirk Bogarde mysteriously exceeded the sum of his parts. Many of his 63 films were forever banal, while others initially thrilling and controversial were tamed or stultified by time. In a career spanning almost 60 years he willingly switched disguise, but neither wigs nor breeches, the officer's khaki nor the doctor's white coat, could long conceal his limitations of range. When he offered subtlety and suggestiveness instead of versatility those limitations appeared almost a virtue; but with the failure of that exchange in the mid-1970s his acting became almost intolerably arch and repetitive.

exhibition: from the bomb to the beatles

Meander down memory lane - be it yours or your granny's - as The Imperial War Museum launches a major exhibition focusing on post-war Britain. "From the Bomb to the Beatles", designed by Sir Terence Conran, chronicles changes in Britain between 1945 and 1965; from post-war austerity to "you've never had it so good". Memorabilia includes stage costumes worn by John Lennon and Marilyn Monroe, a pink sapphire ring which belonged to Elvis, and art and sculpture by artists Henry Moore and Peter Blake. Also highlighted are classic domestic items such as tin baths, washing powder and Minis. A complementary programme of demonstrations and talks addresses the development of the consumer lifestyle, from fashion to food and film.

Design: Explosions in a post-war world

Marooned in a grim sea of Utility furniture and muted browns and greens, British design after the Second World War was ripe for a change. And then, as a new exhibition shows, came pop culture, Conran and bouncy steel chairs.
