  3. Deejohn, I just heard about your heatwave. Even I would be complaining here with temps like that. Bet the Tube is stinking hot.

  6. Karl got an Oscar for his Streetcar performance; and while I was at imdb.com checking my claim, I got this for Mollie Sugden -

    "Appeared on season three of Little Britain as herself. The character of Liz (David Walliams) is always bragging how she was the bridesmaid for Molly Sugden's wedding, to anyone and everyone, while her poor husband (Matt Lucas) tries to hush her.
    In one episode, Liz starts again bragging about being Molly's bridesmaid. When Molly turns around (we first see only her back) she says to Liz that she only had one bridesmaid and the girl was called Helen not Liz. Liz ends the skit with throwing a knife into Molly's back.
    The character of Liz was inspired by a friend of David Walliams who went to a wedding where he met an older woman who was claiming to have been Molly's bridesmaid."

    ..and before Little Britain, Mollie was in everything else, including The Goodies. Bless her, and the mauve wig she rode in on.

  8. Yes Cazzie, memories from my childhood too........oh, I lied.

    Ann, how would I notice him when Marlon was in the movie? Re Mollie, yes I remember now that scene now. Quite funny.

    Victor, didn't that fall into day to day lingo. I am surprised to hear the tv show ran for thirteen years.
