THE BROADER PICTURE: MICKEY MOUSE'S FUNNY MONEY

Once upon a time, the Anglo-Saxon traveller venturing outside the safe haven of sterling or dollar felt, deep down, that all these little coins in an unfamiliar currency were Mickey Mouse money. Nowadays, in the worldwide scam of vending-machine fraud, a variety of funny money is being used, including one that the big-eared rodent is, literally, helping to produce.

Obituary: Ed Love

Ed Love is not a name well known even to those film-lovers who take notes from the creative credits which flash by all too quickly in the cinema. Television is no help, either, often cutting off credit titles or squashing them into unreadable portions of the screen while using the rest of the space to advertise whatever is coming next. This is especially true of cartoon credits, where even resorting to videos and freeze-frames does not always help. This is even sadder for a long-term animator like Ed Love, whose early work was never credited anyway, and whose later work may well be lost thanks to Hanna-Barbera's latest practice of crediting every name in the company but in ultra-rapid frame flashes.

Every November, at a certain minute of a certain hour of a certain day, the minds of millions of people around Britain focus on a piece of stone. It might be the Cenotaph in Whitehall or just a simple slab on the wall of a tiny village church. Wherever it is though, whatever its size, its purpose is the same. It is a channel for thought; an aide-memoire to the billions of individual histories and miseries that make up a war.

`Mickey Mouse' Cup finalists laugh their way to the bank

Measured in terms of the 76,000 crowd expected at Wembley, tomorrow's Auto Windscreens Shield final is as big a match as Britain will stage this season. The attendance is set to top the figure for last month's Coca-Cola Cup final, itself more than double the gate for England's last game.
