Quote from: Phoenix Lazarus on July 21, 2022, 08:55:49 AMI found it weird and out-of-character when Barker impersonated Buster Bloodvessel. Part of the Two Ron's charm was the typical quaint, old-time-musical/music-hall character of their song and dance numbers.
Quote"I'll tell you who my favourite performer is. Ronnie Barker. Surprised? You shouldn't be. He's really great."Sir Alec GuinnessBarker became a comic actor in his theatre days, noting "I think it's better to make people laugh than cry." He has been described by The Times as "not a comedian, [but] an actor with a talent for comedy," who "slipped into characters with apparent ease." Barker felt he was funny only in character. The BBC wrote of him: "Able to deliver the great tongue-twisting speeches required of his characters, Barker pronounced himself 'completely boring' without a script." Peter Hall spoke of Barker's skills as a dramatic actor, calling him "the great actor we lost" and lamented that Barker was unable to take a role in one of his Shakespearean productions. Barker, though, preferred comedy, and felt it was "as good and as important as serious work" and he was not "dumbing down" by doing it. Actor Gene Wilder compared him to Charlie Chaplin in saying "no matter how farcical [his performance] was ... there was always an element of reality to what he did." Corbett praised Barker's skill at playing serious authority figures saying absurd things, using Barker's verbal dexterity and energetic performances.
