Two notes:

1. Vasily Smyslov, RIP.

    Hmm. Reminds me of another famous Hollywood couple (well, they were both famous in Hollywood, though I don't think anyone knew they were a couple): John Wayne and Marlene Dietrich.

    Dietrich saw Wayne and begged her agent to get her a movie with him. They had an affair that lasted three years by some accounts. And when they were on a movie together, they played chess between scenes.
