Questions for 03/September/2006

Good morning Gentleman,

First off, cheerio to Charity who is currently in hospital, adding recruits to the Questionable Trio…we should be the Questionable Trio Plus Half by now.

Q: Who Am I?

In one of my first movies I played a character called Jones (which was uncredited) – One reviewer said "This is a classic Bad British
Movie" so maybe it was just as well I was uncredited. 

My surname is not my original family name.

In another film at around the same time I played a Post Office clerk in a movie that was loosely based on a real incident.  Barry Humphries was another actor in the same movie.

My first appearances were on television in the early 60’s.

I was a writer for a few TV shows in the early 60’s such as "That Was The Week That Was", and "The Frost Report".

I studied Law in College.  

My middle name  is "Marwood".

I reached 6ft by the age of 12.

I have an asteroid names in my honor.

In 2000, I appeared in a film with John Laws.

John Cleese
Movies in order mentioned: The Best House in London 1969, The Bliss of Mrs. Blossom 1968, The Magic Pudding 2000

Trivia:  His family’s surname was previously "Cheese" but his father, an insurance salesman, changed his surname to "Cleese" upon joining the army in 1915
An asteroid, 9618 Johncleese, is named in his honour.

Q: Which 1990 movie about encephalitis was based on a non-fiction book written by Dr. Oliver Sacks, and name two of the lead actors.

A: Awakenings, starring Robert De Niro, Robin Williams, Julie Kavner and Ruth Nelson.

Happy fathers day to all, and especially to Charity’s fiance Steve

Charity has a fiance? I thought you and her may have become an item.
