Under The Skin was based on the book of the same name by Michel Faber.
I knew naught of Mr Faber or his writing until the movie showed at Revelation. I was sufficiently intrigued that I tracked down the book.

From Bret Harte at Morning Mail:
Today is Rosh Hashanah. The Jewish New Year. Literally it translates as “head of the year”…
Right now in Israel Benjamin Netanyahu has wished Israelis a happy Rosh Hashanah. Like every other politician in the world at other New Years.
But this year is something different. Netanyahu held back until the last moment to give something additionally symbolic to this day packed with symbolism. For he announced that for the first time, Israel was now home to six million Jews.
Nobody bothered to announce on earlier Rosh Hashanahs that there were five million or four living there; and it is a safe bet that no one will announce something on Rosh Hashanah when they hit 7 million. For six million is the accepted figure for the number of Jews in Germany Poland France etc that Hitler murdered in pathological hatred.
And Netanyahu is sending a message to Muslims and world bigots on Rosh Hashana that Jews are still here. They are still a force. The message was almost defiant – “They did their worst” and we are still living, we were beaten and we rose again.
Read on. It’s not just Israel that’s ‘still here’.
Here’s one comedian who’s getting the praise BEFORE he kicks the bucket.

He’s 88 years old and he did an hour and a half. He had a 14-piece orchestra and a few highlight clips of his career that he played throughout the show. He is Don Rickles, Mr. Warmth, and I had the incredible pleasure of seeing him live in Las Vegas.

The Man From UNCLE mini-episode that Guy Ritchie will have to better.
McCallum was a vinyl artist as well during the 60s. He didn’t sing, but followed his father’s lead and conducted orchestras in his own arrangements of popular songs. He wrote a few songs as well – including this moody instrumental.
And here’s something I didn’t know: McCallum is another actor with military service in his background. According to this fansite David served with the Royal West African Force during the 1950s. Mr McCallum still has links today to the men in uniform. His favourite charity is the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation.
