Want a totally natural and great comedian? Look no further than the Benny Hill DVD's available here at amazon.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang starred both Hill and American comic actor Dick Van Dyke. Hill the funnier of the two.

It 'starred' Dick Van Dyke, Sally Anne Howes and Lionel Jeffries Hill had one of the smaller roles, not on screen for long at all. Also there is far more to the film that just actors being funny.

Benny Hill is a genius. Realising that musical album if misread by a cheesy presenter on auto cue could become musical bum is an enduring comedy memory.

Think I have invented a new game you simply have to guess if a thread is posted by man of truth or his alter ego Stephen Thibault no peeking points awarded if your right, the more far flung and oddly placed the thread the more points you win e.g. if a thread in the religious discussion turns out to be about the godlike genius of benny hill award yourself a high score. I think as man of truth has spread like a weird virus throughout the amazon discussions this could take off and lead to very high scores.

he's been kinda quiet of late - a lot of his recent posts on 'elton john' thread have been deleted by amazon.

Damn that rather spoils things, I only though of it because I came across a post of his in the science forum and wondered how far he has actually spread.

In reply to an earlier post on 1 Feb 2014 11:30:55 GMT
perhaps himself and stephen thibault fell out and kicked the keech out of himself :)

Strange isn't it? He doesn't even seem to have got excited about the BBC doing a programme about Lusitania. Maybe he's on holiday or something; I hope he hasn't given up bombarding us with his nonsense. In an odd way I'd miss it.

i get the impression that he's been turfed.

His *three* neuroplasticity threads on science forum still there, so he can't really be kicked out. Maybe he and Stephen Thibault are getting married or having a honeymoon, or something

I sure wish that particular John Smith would come on these boards and write of his Hill book.

Don't pretend you're not pleased. ;)

Btw is that Trapdoor you're referencing?

The fact is that particular John Smith could easily be with BH now, in fact they may even be one and the same person!

In reply to an earlier post on 8 Mar 2014 19:38:31 GMT

Who can narrate the Hill documentary they should make soon?

Been done already, doubt if there is anything new to add since the last one (around 2004 I think), or the one before that or .....
