Re: Just for fun

@TTman 

That does surprise as I really enjoyed it and I thought it was one of his best character parts ever earning him well deserved BAFTA best actor award. A brilliant satire I thought and a real piddle take on trade unions in the 50s.

Hi  Minivanman

Born in Newcastle Under Lyme ( where I was born ) there is a Memorial to him in Queens Gardens in Newcastle

Now remembering the very funny Irene Handl.

Fred Kite: I've got to be off. I can't stay here arguing. I've got a lot to do. Report to the Executive, check up on the pickets.

Mrs Kite: From what I can see, the only time you ever jolly well 'do' any work is when you're on strike.

😋

@Minivanman  Probably was of an age when I would not appreciate the satire of it. So need to see it now and I would appreciate it better. Peter Sellers was a brilliant actor and wit. To subtle for me at that age!!!!Thumbs_Up

Fair point about Jools Holland, he had singers but James Moir you've put me in a spin there so much I'm feeling dizzy.

Re: Just for fun

If you are thinking of Ian Dury @Mook he's no longer with us... he'd also be more than 80?

Really got me scratching my head on this one.
