- Alfred Russel Wallace, OM, FRS (8 January 1823 – 7 November 1913) was a British naturalist, explorer, geographer, anthropologist and biologist. He is best known for independently proposing a theory of evolution due to natural selection that prompted Charles Darwin to publish his own theory.

Redheaded German leading lady Karin Dor (1938) became popular in the 1960’s playing heroines in Edgar Wallace and Karl May films. She was Winnetou’s greatest love but also the first German Bond girl. After appearing in more international films, including one by Alfred Hitchcock, she became a respected stage actress in Germany.
Karin Dor was born as Katherose Derr in 1938 in Wiesbaden, Germany. She grew up in a middle-class family. Although she initially wanted to become a fashion designer, she took actor's training and ballet lessons. At 15, she tried to break into the film industry starting as an extra in Der letzte Walzer/The Last Waltz (1953, Arthur Maria Rabenalt). Her director Rabenalt recommended her to his upcoming colleague Harald Reinl who gave her a small speaking parts in his films Rosen-Resli/Rose-Girl Resli (1954, Harald Reinl) and Der schweigende Engel/The Silent Angel (1954, Harald Reinl) both starring Christine Kaufmann. In the same year, Dor married her Austrian director, who was 30 years her elder. She pretended to be two years older (several sources still give 1936 as her birth date) in order to marry without problems. The young actress made her first major appearances as a high-school graduate in Ihre grosse Prufung/The Big Test (1954, Rudolf Jugert) with Luise Ullrich, and as a mayor's daughter during the Spanish Civil War in the melodrama Solange du lebst/As Long As You Live (1955, Harald Reinl). Hal Erickson writes on All Movie Guide that “though the leading lady of this film, Marianne Koch, received several awards for her performance, many male viewers were more interested in her sexier costar Karin Dor”. A curiosity was the comedy Mit Eva fing die Sunde an/ Bellboy and the Playgirls (1958, Fritz Umgelter), which centers on a bellhop who prepares for his dream job of becoming a detective by spying on half-naked chorines through a keyhole. Just before the film was distributed in the USA in 1962, the young Francis Ford Coppola was hired to add additional scenes featuring nude women - shot in 3-D - to spice up the story.
According to another source, Filmportal.de, Karin Dor specialized in gentle and naive roles in popular music films and sentimental comedies with a regional background. But she managed to successfully transfer her image to the crime film genre in Die Bande des Schreckens/Hand of the Gallows (1960, Harald Reinl), the third film in the Edgar Wallace series. Dor became popular as ‘Miss Krimi’ and was seen in eleven Wallace films. She also appeared in the Dr Mabuse and Fu Manchu horror melodrama series, in Die Unsichtbaren Krallen des Dr. Mabuse/The Invisible Dr. Mabuse (1962, Harald Reinl) and Ich, Dr. Fu Man Chu/The Face of Fu Manchu (1962, Don Sharp) starring Christopher Lee. Karin Dor often played the innocent damsel in distress, who opposed the bad guys bravely till the hero saved her. In that role she became a key asset to the Karl May film series, the second huge West German genre success. First she appeared in Der Schatz im Silbersee/The Treasure of Silver Lake (1962, Harald Reinl), the first film with Lex Barker as Old Shatterhand and Pierre Brice as Winnetou. In Winnetou 2. Teil (1964, Harald Reinl), she was Ribanna, Winnetou’s great love, again directed by her husband. She also appeared in the Eurowesterns Der letzte Mohikaner/The Last of the Mohicans (1965, Harald Reinl), Winnetou - 3. Teil/The Desperado Trail (1965) and Winnetou und Shatterhand im Tal der Toten/In the Valley of Death (1968, Harald Reinl). In 1994, she was awarded the Scharlih-Prize, the best-known award, connected to Karl May.
A turning point in Karin Dor’s career was her great role as the demonic Brunhild in the two-part Burgundian saga Die Nibelungen (1966, Harald Reinl). Although the film was not well received by the critics, it became the start of Dor's international film career. As Germany's ‘star without affairs’ Dor got the part of sexy agent Helga Brandt in the fifth James Bond opus, You Only Live Twice (1967, Lewis Gilbert) alongside Sean Connery. It enabled her as ‘The first German Bond girl’ to act against her former, rather virtuous role image. She delivered a convincing performance as a red-haired temptress trying to stop the famous undercover agent using her erotic charm. In 1968, Karin Dor became sick with cancer and divorced Harald Reinl. But after a brief halt in her career there was the unexpected offer to play a Cuban woman in Alfred Hitchcock's spy thriller Topaz (1969). Dor starred as the beautiful and proud Juanita de Cordoba, the leader of an underground movement. She and her lover collaborate with the West. Her death scenes in both films were spectacular. In the Bond-film Helga Brandt is devoured by piranhas; and in Topaz Juanita is shot by her jealous lover (John Vernon), in the style of an opera's finale. Till

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE MUSEUM
The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in 1870 by a group of American citizens – businessmen and financiers as well as leading arists and thinkers of the day – who wanted to create a museum to bring art and art education to the American people.
The Metropolitan's paintings collection also began in 1870, when three private European collections, 174 paintings in all, came to the Museum. A variety of excellent Dutch and Flemish paintings, including works by such artists as Hals and Van Dyck, was supplemented with works by such great European artists as Poussin, Tiepolo, and Guardi.
The collections continued to grow for the rest of the 19th century – upon the death of John Kensett, for example, 38 of his canvases came to the Museum. But it is the 20th century that has seen the Museum's rise to the position of one of the world's great art centers. Some highlights: a work by Renoir entered the Museum as early as 1907 (today the Museum has become one of the world's great repositories of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art)...in 1910 the Metropolitan was the first public institution to accept works of art by Matisse...by 1979 the Museum owned five of the fewer than 40 known Vermeers...the Department of Greek and Roman Art now oversees thousands of objects, including one of the finest collections in glass and silver in the world...The American Wing holds the most comprehensive collection of American art, sculpture, and decorative arts in the world...the Egyptian art collection is the finest outside Cairo...the Islamic art collection is without peer...and so on, through many of the 17 curatorial departments.
In 1880, the Metropolitan Museum moved to its current site in Central Park. The original Gothic-Revival-style building has been greatly expanded in size since then, and the various additions (built as early as 1888) now completely surround the original structure. The present facade and entrance structure along Fifth Avenue were completed in 1926.
A comprehensive architectural plan for the Museum approved in 1971 was completed in 1991. The architects for the project were Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo and Associates, and the overall aim was to make the Museum's collections more accessible to the public, more useful to the scholars and, in general, more interesting and informative to all visitors.
Among the additions to the Museum as part of the master plan are: the Robert Lehman Wing (1975), which houses an extraordinary collection of Old Masters, as well as Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art; the installation in The Sackler Wing of the Temple of Dendur (1978), an Egyptian monument (ca. 15 B.C.) that was given to the United States by Egypt; The American Wing (1980), whose magnificent collection also includes 24 period rooms offering an unparalleled view of American art history and domestic life; The Michael C. Rockefeller Wing (1982) for the display of the arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas; the Lila Acheson Wallace Wing (1987), which houses modern art; and the Henry R. Kravis Wing, devoted to European sculpture and decorative arts from the Renaissance to the beginning of the 20th century.
With the building now complete, the Metropolitan Museum continues to refine and reorganize the collections in its existing spaces. In June 1998, the Arts of Korea gallery opened to the public, completing a major suite of galleries – a "museum within the Museum" – devoted to the arts of Asia. In October 1999 the renovated Ancient Near Eastern Galleries reopened. And a complete renovation and reinstallation of the Greek and Roman Galleries is underway: the first phase, The Robert and Renee Belfer Court for early Greek art, opened in June 1996; the New Greek Galleries premiered in April 1999; and in April 2000 the Cypriot Galleries will open to the public.
