my world and welcome to it
Very neat ..I recognized all the subjects with out the labels (except Mr Bull who I don't know of)There is a nice page on Mr Pastry herehttp://whirligig-tv.co.uk/tv/children/other/mrpastry.htmI have vague memories of him performing at Butlin's Pwllheli in the early 60's ..we only made one visit to a Butlins I think my parents preferred a boarding house on the North Wales coast but My brother had fond memories of Mr Pastry's show his slapstick just hit the mark for a small boy.
Thanks for the link... I also remember seeing Hearne perform on stage in a summer season somewhere on the South Coast... I bet you DO know Peter Bull: he was famously the Russian ambassador in Dr Stangelove and appeared in many others movies including The African Queen; The Old Dark House (with Robert Morley and Joyce Grenfell; Tom Jones; Joseph Andrews, Dr Dolittle and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (as the Duchess). On stage he played a number significant roles including first productions of The Lady's Not for Burning, Luther and, most significantly, Waiting for Godot.
Oh Gosh was he in The African Queen?I shall have to go look at the cast and see who he was playing ...Ok just looked and you are right I did know him but didn't know I did ...if that makes sense? He played some fun parts didn't he ...I enjoyed Captain's paradise with Alec Guiness and Scrooge ..I just didn't know his name .Now I know better.
What's really funny about your last comment is that Peter (who was a good friend of mine for many years) wrote a series of – very amusing – show-biz memoirs including, in 1959, a volume with a title that summed up his career: I Know the Face But...!You can see a copy here.
I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking it is about time the cartoon Museum had an exhibition of the Sibley Works and Collection.(usual 10% commission, please, Brian!)
that is funny :0)Thanks for the link ..it looks like an entertaining read I shall seek it out.
