"And Then There Were None" Directed by Peter Collinson and Starring Charles Aznavour, Maria Rohm, Adolfo Celi ("Thunderball"), Stéphane Audran, Alberto de Mendoza, Richard Attenborough, Gert Fröbe ("Goldfinger", "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang"), Herbert Lom, Elke Sommer and Oliver Reed, and  Orson Welles provides the voice of Mr. U.

A group is invited, under false pretenses, to an isolated hotel in the Iranian desert. After dinner, a cassette tape accuses them all of crimes that they have gotten away with. One by one they begin to die, in accordance to the Ten Little Indians Nursery rhyme. After a search is made of the hotel, they realize that the murderer is one of them. A few members of the group attempt to trust each other, but the question still remains, who can one trust? and who will leave the hotel alive?

He was featured, and dealt with. It's history, now.

Then You should Blog about it ...

That is the whole purpose of blogging my friend ;0) 

He is Prince Ali Patrick Pahlavi the Son of One of the Shah's Brothers:

ROYALTY AND THE PEOPLE: Prince Ali Reza Cheered by Rioters (1953)

His mother is French Polish and he is Better known as Pahlavi Eslami because at the time of the Revolution he went through some kind of Indentity Crisis and Joined the Revolution.

He was considered as a Possible heir to the Peacock Throne when the shah and Soraya were vainly trying to have a child.

You can see him as a child mentioned in the end of this clip from the British Pathe News:

But Since the Shah divorced Soraya because she could not have children and Married Farah Diba who gave him a Son, Crown Prince Reza became officially the heir to the Peacock Throne.

That may explain why he became enstranged with his own family and cousin 30 years later ...

But I have heard that he is not a bad fellow and works for Humanitarian causes. I think he lives in Canada or NY ...

It had nothing to do with this topic, I just used your last post to make sure you read my comment. I asked this question because you seem to have encyclopedic knowledge on The Pahlavis and this newly surfaced prince could be of interest to you and other readers.
