Terry-Thomas: I'm in absolute shock!

Post by High Threshold »

I just now found this on YouTube. I had no idea! I really did admire his work. Particularly ”Make Mine Mink” and ”School for Scoundrels” hold a special place in my memory.

I am completely stunned. Of all my favourite actors through the years he stands out as possibly the one most impressionable comedian I can think of. I must be terribly naïve because I honestly didn't think such a fate could befall anyone.

I see he died in 1990 - which was probably just as well. With such a witty mind to live like that must have been the biggest insult you could imagine.

The ravages of age can be very distressing to all concerned.

One can hope that his illness deprived him of understanding the full extent of that insult.
