Very sad news indeed. Maynard survived a number of strokes, so to be taken by an accident, a broken hip, seems unfair really. Jack Douglas said that as a young comic Bill was quite handsome and something of a sex symbol, girls would crowd outside stage doors in hope of meeting him. A favorite Carry On moment from At Your Convenience, is Bill describing Joan Sims’ ample bristols, “Well, I mean look at ‘em. Like two bald headed convicts trying to burst out of jail.” And his performance in Ride Again is hilarious, a classic.
Clear weather Bill..and smooth sailing
