Pascal, Wallace, and Dahl

A friend, Ken Neunzig, sent me this clip from a book. It speaks for itself. Gabriel Pascal was the filmmaker most involved in Baba's own film designs from the 1930's through 1952. Click image to enlarge.

Roald Dahl was the author of such books as James and the Giant Peach and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The captioned photo is from Storyteller: The Authorized Biography of Roald Dahl, in which Meher Baba and the film Pascal was making for him is mentioned on p. 194. (Search Meher Baba in look inside)

  1. Jai Meher Baba ~

    So is Pascal's "mystical devotion" (as the text calls it) to Meher Baba an example of "Pascal's wager?" ;-)
