Two stories

This man served as a Resistance liaison with Patton's Army, forged documents to keep kids out of death camps, and had the only speaking role in Mel Brooks' Silent Movie. You probably only know him for that third thing, or related silences on stage. Obviously there was a lot more to the late Marcel Marceau than we thought.

This man had a rocket in his pocket - and is damned lucky to be still walking around able to talk about it. RTWT - it's a gripping tale of survival in Afghanistan. (In From The Cold)
