RIP Harry and Haoppy Birthday Wilfrid.

Postby PhilGlass » Sun Mar 21, 2010 2:58 pm

R.I.P. Harry who died on the 21st of March. A unique talent sadly missed.

Happy birthday for Wilfrid, who would have had his 98'th birthday tomorrow (22nd).

It was on his birthday that he received the news of his friends passing. He told the Daily Mail "I have neither the desire nor the energy to open any presents.".

Thanks to sites like these, Harry's talent is kept alive!! A true british legend!

These two continue to make me laugh whenever i put 'em on,be it the Tv or Radio shows or the films, classic comedy at its best,never matched.
I'm watching the first film as i write,i enjoy it as much now as when i first saw it as a kid..............CLASSIC!!
