Well-Done! for locating the two 'Whittington posters, Ron. I must say, both cats are shown with a certain amount of stage presence ... what.
Looking at the poster again I think it was 1938. December 26th fell on Monday in this year too.
A spot of useless information ...
Sybil Dunn, the actress playing the title role, was the wife of actor Jack Haig, who played Monsieur Leclerc, in the sitcom 'Allo Allo'.
She died in 1988.
Thanks for that, Mick. And it's surprising what spots of information can sometimes lead to: Jack Haig's short role of 'bartender' in Dad's Army's Ring Dem Bells is not only funny, but also celebrated. I hope that you'll give it a whirl - it's about 18 mins in.
Will do, Philip. Got the 'Dad's Army' box set on the shelf behind the telly!
I understand he turned the part of Lance Corporal Jones down in the series, when they were first casting, and it was then taken by the one and only Clive Dunn.
Thanks, Mick. I look forward to more of your posts.
