No Reversal of Coma...

Sunny von Bulow, aged 76, died after nearly 28 years of coma. She's survived by several children and grandchildren, as well as ex-husband Claus von Bulow, who twice stood accused of attempting to murder her (resulting in her coma) before being found innocent of what in all likelihood was a non-existent crime. Claus now lives in London.

The von Bulow saga was the subject of an excellent Hollywood movie, Reversal of Fortune, an adaptation of a book by Alan Dershowitz, starring Jeremy Irons and Glenn Close. I absolutely loved the movie and have watched it many times since its release. I guess this now is the real end to the film, Sunny just never woke up from it...

I loved the movie, too, Gert. Garcia was scary perfect in his a role of Derschowitz, wasn't he? BTW, he (Garcia) is a Republican conservative activist now, believe it or not!

Actually, according Wiki it was Ron Silver that played that part...
