......has died. Sad

My reaction on hearing this news was a big "Awww" ...have liked George Cole,as an actor, since the first time I saw him and he has always come across as a delightful man in interviews.

So many fine performances from him...a stalwart of the British acting.

Arthur Daley has to be on of the best loved characters to ever appear on the small screen.

He was 90 ... good innings for a diamond geezer.

R.I.P



I found this interesting when I read it online....

Flash Harry was Cole's first major role, which saw him share the screen with Alastair Sim, who guided his early career and was a lifelong influence.

The pair met in theatre and Cole was taken under Sim's wing while still a teenager when he took him in as an unofficial evacuee in his Oxfordshire home during World War Two.

Cole never left - he eventually built his own home next door to Sim and his wife - and proceeded to star in a succession of stage shows and films with the Scottish star, including St Trinian's, based on the fictional girls' school created by cartoonist Ronald Searle.

My first memory of him was on the radio in "A Life of Bliss" in which he played David Bliss, a nervous bachelor, with a married sister (Frances Bennett) who was always trying to pair him off with suitable girls. I think his brother-in-law was played by Colin Gordon who later starred with George and Alistair Sim in "The Green Man", a film well worth watching.

RIP
