Today is Tuesday, You Know What That Means....2-10-09
Today is Tuesday.
You know what that means.
We're gonna have a Special Guest!!
Today's special guest was requested by Edie at Rich Gifts....(ok, that was probably redundant, because if you are here then you Must know that Edie is from Rich Gifts. Never-the-Less, here is a link to Edie's blog...just ...in ....case ...you ....aren't ...in ....the ..... loop ....... yet ......
The gentleman in this clip is definitely in my top 5 list of all time favorite actors. Well, I don't actually have a list, but if I did, he would definitely be on it. Hhmmm...maybe I'll make a list...
Monkeys Are Funny...
Dick Van Dyke stars as Caractacus Potts in the outstanding movie, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
This clip is from the song and dance act Me Ol' Bamboo.
1. Mr Van Dyke was noted saying that Me Ol' Bamboo was one of the most difficult dancing acts he ever undertook.
2. This movie was released in 1968 and Dick Van Dyke was 43 years old. (If you saw Chatty Kelly's post last Tuesday, you may notice that that is just 1 year younger than the actor was that played Uncle Remus in Song of the South).
3. Lionel Jeffries, the man that played Grandpa Potts, was actually 6 months YOUNGER than Van Dyke.
4. Coggins, the junk dealer that sold Potts the car, was played by Desmond Llewelyn. Mr. Llewelyn later went on to play the part of "Q" , the man responsible for developing all the gadgets in the James Bond films.
Well, what are you waiting for?
Me Ol' Bamboo!!
