Quote from: lauraxsynthesis on April 18, 2022, 10:00:35 PMTomorrow it's 30 years since Frankie Howerd died. I recently found out he filmed a scene for the Beatles Help! that wasn't used http://www.meetthebeatlesforreal.com/2015/04/deleted-from-help.html
Quote from: Lisa Jesusandmarychain on April 19, 2022, 08:49:54 AMBenny Hill pre- snuffed Frankie Howard by a day or two, I believe, but his body wasn't found until a couple of days after his dying in front of his television set.
Quote from: Gurke and Hare on April 19, 2022, 12:26:52 PMWasn't Benny Hill quoted as being upset by Howerd's death?
Quote from: Lisa Jesusandmarychain on April 19, 2022, 12:59:12 PMHis agent made that quote up, not having the knowledge that Benny was, in fact dead in front of his telly at that point.

Quote from: Brundle-Fly on May 07, 2022, 12:25:36 PMWhat's interesting about him is how he went in and out fashion. Howerd's career was described by Barry Cryer as being "a series of comebacks". Wasn't it Peter Cook who revived his career in the early sixties by putting him on at The Establishment club?

Quote from: Ignatius_S on May 10, 2022, 05:51:59 PMAlthough young - a mere babe in arms - I remember being delighted that Howerd appearing as a guest. In his slot, they discussed about Howerd acquiring a student following (jokes about him being a cult etc. etc.) and one indie band being fans. I can't recall for the life of me if he was in one of their videos (or the group's name, annoyingly) but suspect that he was and had just featured in large feature and photoshoot for one of the weekly music papers.
