Tony Hancock bio

Postby Archie » Sun Jan 22, 2012 6:25 pm

I picked up Hancocks Definitive Biography at the charity bookshop yesterday. Only 3 quid for the large 500 odd page hardback tome in good nick :o

So far I've only browsed but there are plenty of references to Galton and Simpson of course.

There is a photo of Hancock and Tony Melody - the milkman in Come Dancing on stage at the RAF gang show :o

I'm a big Hancock fan,the best book i've read on him is "When the wind changed,the life & death of Tony Hancock" by Cliff Goodwin. I can thoroughly recommend it,its quite a read being over 570 pages in length.
