...watching films.

Sometimes I get bored with movies, then I learn something that makes me want to see more.

This time, its...... wait for it....... George Sanders fancied himself a singer.

Oh, Lordy.

I can see you might have been a little weary by the Batman tv credits, Ron. Mr Cheese indeed. Never heard of that villain, though the campy tv series is the probably most likely of places to find him!

"A reason to go on..."

Gosh, DavidinBerkeley. For a second there, I thought you were thinking of suicide or something....

Glad to read that's not the case.

I have no idea who George Sanders is, but I got a similar reaction when I saw my favourite actor Jack Nicholson sing(!) in The Who's TOMMY:

IMDB I guess left out his last effort PSYCHOMANIA[DEATH WHEELERS] A neat little horror film with BERLY REID. The word was they found him dead in his apartment with a suicide note stating, there was nothing left to live for.

And not long ago there was a post about Nigel Green, who appears to have suffered a similar fate. I can't help thinking of either of them in isolation. Both were stalwarts.
