In Memoriam: Terry-Thomas 1911-1990
It’s exactly twenty years since the death of one of Britain’s funniest film actors: Terry-Thomas.
TT has always been a big favourite of mine- I particularly loved his portrayal of upper class cads Sir Percy/Sir Cuthbert Ware-Armitage in those great 1960s Ken Annakin films Those Magnificient Men in their Flying Machines and Monte Carlo or Bust. (The latter is on Film 4 tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon at 4.35pm- any British based readers who haven't seen it yet are in for a real treat).
Above you can watch an interview TT gave on the Russell Harty show back in 1973. I hope you enjoy the bull story at the end!
