Great photo! He's probably my favourite thing about the Carry Ons, Sid James admiration notwithstanding.

It bears noting that I knew who he was prior to hearing John Lennon's namecheck on Let It Be. Thanks for the reruns, CBC!

I have to say that I admire someone who knows this gent. Being an avid Beatles fan, I never knew who Charles Hawtrey was and appreciate someone who does.

Always a great read on your blog!

I've been posting on Blogger for almost a year.

How strange to see myself on the Charlie Parker website.

I'm also sorry I drank myself to death . . . .


And typing while dead is damned difficult.

Hi Charles! It's too bad Morrissey never got to interview you.

Hawtrey always made me smile in those Will Hay films.

Hmmm...I only have the Hawtrey-less Hay films Oh Mr. Porter and Convict 99. Guess I'll have to augment the collection.
