...R.I.P. Bill Kerr. Been a bit slack in posting about Bill Kerr after he died last week, aged 92, shockingly slack when he was major part in one of my all time favourites. Hancock's Half hour.
...R.I.P. Robin Williams. When the rumours of Robin Williams' death were confirmed yesterday it came as one hell of a shock.
...Sheffield? The 2014 Tour De France Depart through Yorkshire were reet grand.
...off any more.
...il brutto. You want a convincing Mexican bandit send for the Jewish guy from Brooklyn, amongst a hell of a lot of other parts Eli Wallach, one of the greatest character actors, played two of the best in two classic films.
...another piece of the childhood gone. Crude, rude, trashy, vulgar from Kevin Turvey to Bottom via The Young Ones, the Comic Strip and The New Statesman that was Rik Mayall's comedy and it made me laugh.
...we shall all be back. Following on from yesterday's post another great final line of a film. Leslie Howard's classic “'Pimpernel' Smith”.
...if not particularly good taste. A Tweet yesterday from Last Exit To Nowhere reminded me I hadn't seen the film “A Boy And His Dog” for ages.
...got me thinking. Where have I seen that before? Ah, yes it was the scene in Animal House with Babs Jansen and Greg Marmalard in lover's lane.
...alright Dave. Trigger from “Only Fools And Horses” is one of the great TV comedy characters, expertly played by Roger Lloyd-Pack.
...that answers that question. Whenever I tuned into ITV4 The Professionals were on I'd get to thinking what happened to Lewis Collins?
...panic. This cinema classic deserves better than early morning airings.
...east bound and down. Writer and director of one of the great films, Smokey And The Bandit along with one of the great Hollywood stuntmen.
...agenda. Fracking Kills Dolphins!!! The BBC think that inshore fracking will kill off the dolphins while being happy about offshore, bird killing, windfarms.
...irony. So the dear old luvvie is in full whinging, setting the world to rights, mode again. But while frothing at the mouth over teh Daily mail's past he doesn't seem to mention that of his beloved B.B.C.
