And I seem to remember Anita Harris running around in her underwear. She's 78 now
I never met her but the people I know who did said that she was an absolute gem. RIP Babs
She used to live in London in a small mews house in Devonshire Mews West.
Amanda Barrie did 2, including famously Cleopatra, and she is still with us.
That makes sense, Nines. I remember walking past her in nearby Weymouth Street in the late 1990's. I guess that would be before her East Ender role. She would not have been that wealthy then, because the stars were paid a pittance for their Carry On roles, and nothing for repeats etc.
I believe her great pal, Kenneth Williams, lived thereabouts too. I used to see him on and around Oxford St at the end of the 1970's.
Country music legend Charlie Pride of complications from COVID. I was reading about him and I know he toured in England during his career - and was the first Black to achieve stardom in country music. I personally know none of his songs since I am not a country music fan
As Maple has said, l never really knew his music but l do appreciate his efforts and his achievements.
Charlie Pride had 30 number 1 hits, which is a mighty fine effort.
How low is this?
When's Barbara Windsors funeral
John le Carré, author of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, dies aged 89
Kenneth Williams had a flat in Farley Court overlooking Regents Park and Madame Tussauds in Allsop Place Goldie. He also had a flat in Marlborough House, Osnaburgh Street. ( Opposite Great Portland Street Station. ) He had a blue plaque at both locations but the property in Osnaburgh Street where he lived and died was demolished in 2007 and along with it his blue plaque.
John le Carre now.
(just seen Eller’s already done it)
I used to live close by and remember seeing him on many occasions, once or twice wheeling his mother around. The two things I remember was that he always had the same miserable look on his face which I assumed was his self defense mechanism to stop people approaching him. My friends and did say hello several times only to get the Kenneth Williams 'yeeeees' my other memory was that he always wore the same mac buttoned all the up to the neck be it cold or boiling hot.
He looked like a troubled sole!
Thanks for that authoritative response, Nines. The detail is fascinating. It's a shame about the Osnaburgh flat. It would be interesting to know whether his life and work will hold interest for future generations. We don't seem to value performers of the past - but then we don't have them on screen to entertain us. Carry On films may yet entertain audiences of the future.
Whenever I saw him, Kenneth Williams always had his - don't you dare approach me - face on. Who can blame him?!

Gerard Houllier dies at 73 following a heart operation. RIP
Dropping like flies man, always the same around Christmas time.
Houllier always came across quite dignified if I recall, unlike most managers these days.
