I read somwhere that the preeminent Fry liked Alistair Sim.
I miss all of them and have started collecting some of their old movies.
Due to this collecting bug I know have 16 Ealing comedies, some Boulting Bros - and others and rediscovered some wonderful rich classics
You got to get "Brothers in Law" Terry Thomas - the great Miles Malleson - Ian Carmichael. Also "School for scoundrels" Alistair Sim - Ian Carmichael. (could easily be adapted to a Fry and Laurie)
...And "The Man in the White Suit" Alex Guiness - Joan Greenwood - Cecil Parker
I miss these greats - Dennis Price, Margaret Rutherford, George Cole, Stanley Holloway, Alex Guiness, Irene handl, Richard Wattis, John le Mesurier etc.
One I just picked up today, which motivated me to say something here, because it was a screenplay formed from a very old literary classic ..."Hobson's Choice" with Charles Laughton, Brenda de Banzie and John Mills.
The films of today dont measure even close.
I'm on a world of discovery; as I am much younger than these films of the post war years, my person being born in 1966.
Which classics would you keep in your collection?
"Security isn't a dirty word, Blackadder..... CREVICE is a dirty word"
