Graham Chapman was a loony. You can tell that from this book. After all it took four men to write his autobiography. Pretty fair, since it took about four men to live his life. There was the quiet pipe-smoking tweed jacketed doctor, who could elucidate complicated medical facts to the layman while calmly diagnosing and dispensing medicines; there was the quiet pipe-smoking writer, who could sit all day painting his nails with gestetner fluid occasionally interjecting the oddest comments, squawks, shouts of “Betty Marsden” and injunctions to sing “Only Make Believe” in a squeaky voice; there was the quiet pipe-smoking homosexual, who could calmly bring a party of Japanese boys down for breakfast in an extremely bourgeois German suburban hotel, causing the manageress conniptions and ending in a request that he move to a more suitable establishment; and there was the quiet pipe-smoking alcoholic, who could reduce any drinks party to a shambles by consuming half a distillery and then crawling round the floor kissing all the men and groping all the women. But he wasn’t all fun.

DURHAM COTTAGE, HOME TO LAURENCE OLIVIER AND VIVIEN LEIGH FOR 20 YEARS, IS AT RISK OF BEING DEMOLISHED OR DEVELOPED ON IF IT SELLS AT AUCTION.

Please sign this petition to help us preserve Durham Cottage by having it listed as a Listed Building with English Heritage.

Also historic as the place where Ralph Richardson set off fireworks for Vivien’s birthday and nearly burned it down, leading years later to Ralph’s Rocket at the National Theatre.

Hey! :D I was just wondering about something. What was Peter's natural hair color? I always assumed that it was blonde, because Lawrence of Arabia, but I read somewhere that it wasn't. And he did have brown hair in How to Steal a Million, so... I'm confused. I figured you'd be the best person to ask about these things, heh. And is it also true that he got a nose job done before Lawrence of Arabia?

Okay, so about the hair: nobody really knows.

I am not kidding.
