Whale of an ending

Film director James Whale (the original Frankenstein) died on this day in 1957, a suicide. He left this note:

"The future is just old age and illness and pain.... I must have peace and this is the only way."

For a fictionalized look at Whale as an old man, check out the great movie, Gods and Monsters.
