is that where you found your interest in history 24?

I took a classical history course as an elective in grade 9, just because I was an Asterix fan.

I think my interest in history comes from my father. When I was at School, studying for a history test was a matter of reading the chapter and then sitting down with him to chat about history. Asterix came later, and I think my interests in history and Asterix fed off each other. To everyone's puzzlement my father never reads Asterix.

RIP Mort Drucker
1929 - 2020

Cartoonist for MAD magazine, he drew most of the movie parodies, was a flawless caricaturist and filled his panels with loads of silly details you had to examine closely to appreciate.
There's still many movies I've never actually seen, but I can bluff my way through conversations with real film buffs because I read Drucker's MAD magazine parodies and therefor know most of the plot.

He drew four parodies of our Bond films, scans of which I linked to way back in this post

He was in At Last the 1948 Show, making him an almost-Python.
It was actually watching those 1948 Shows I really appreciated his talent, he was an incredible physical comedian, almost a dancer how precisely he choreographed his movements.
Also in the proto-Python tv special How to Irritate People

the Goodies were awesome, we used to watch the show after school. Of all the British comedies that got imported here that weren't actually Monty Python, the Goodies were by far the best. They seemed rather subversive for a kids show, especially Bill Oddie.

Brian Dennehy has died aged 81, RIP, perhaps best known as Stallone’s cop nemesis in First Blood but also in the FX movies.

Re: Tributes Thread

Brian Dennehy was a great character actor--he could be villains or sweet avuncular figures, he could be in comedy or drama. . .he was sort of the American Brian Blessed.  RIP.

Re: Tributes Thread

So superb in First Blood, maybe wrong to say he made that film, but really, if ever a film needs a great villain... Yet of course, he wasn't really a conventional villain, being the sheriff. If he'd been Pepper in LALD you wouldn't have fancied Bond's chances....
