A bit of trivia…
When only 20, Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe lost a chunk of nose
in a duel. He subsequently wore a gold and silver prosthetic nose.
Tim Strawn, the ‘villain of the piece’ in “Cat Ballou
” (1965) wore a silver prosthetic nose.
Tycho Brahe was rumored to have had an affair with the queen of Demark, and to have fathered the next Danish King, Christian the IV. This is said to have inspired Shakespeare’s play, “Hamlet”.
Surely there’s some kind of nefarious plot that can be found in these remarkable coincidences.
