True that DBTB

I travelled about 10 years ago in a European heat wave (40c+ daily for about a month). That type of heat is suffocating. A westerner (UK & Ire) would struggle to last more than 10-15mins in direct sun (Even with water on board). I remember pouring bottles of water over my head at 10pm at night it was so hot.

He left the beach where he was with his wife and friends. Reportedly saying he felt unwell. I find the fact that they let a 67yr old man walk off in 40° heat,with no protection apart from an umbrella - (and no phone ) quite astonishing.
What was he doing,where was he going ? Back to the villa where they were staying ?

It isn't that arduous a journey. He looks fit enough to have managed that okay.
Anybody can trip and fall.

If you look at his clothes, he could have worn a thinner shirt than that if it was boiling hot.
I'd have worn one that opened at the way down. And certainly not a sweaty baseball cap that doesn't cover the ears.

Which suggests it wasn't as hot as they're making out.

If you’ve ever been in really hot sun abroad, you’ll know what I mean.

40° is not imo !!

Not arduous ? Those steep rocky hills in that temperature for a 67yr old would have quickly caused his body to dehydrate.

BBC newscaster states cause of death cannot immediately be ascertained due to extensive decay of the body.Not surprising being out in those temperatures for 4 days.

J Edgar Hoover's Communist-hunting agents thought it was a Trojan horse sneaking anti-American propaganda to the masses. This argument was compiled in a memo written by an unnamed special agent in the FBI's Los Angeles field office about "communist infiltration" of the motion picture industry.

From 1942 to 1958, the Los Angeles field office investigated more than 200 movies, fearing they had been turned into weapons of communist propaganda, as John A Noakes wrote in "The Cold War and the Movies." The FBI generally looked into films connected to personalities associated with the Communist Party, which is what drew them to "It's a Wonderful Life."
Report ----you-have-to-laugh--- June 11, 2024 3:44 PM BST
The FBI claimed that two of its screenwriters, Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, "were very close to known Communists and on one occasion in the recent past . . . practically lived with known Communists and were observed" eating lunch every day with "known Communists."

So an agent watched the movie and wrote a report claiming it "represented a rather obvious attempt to discredit bankers."
