5.0 out of 5 stars Eric Morecambe, A True Gentleman And Comic Genius, 11 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Eric Morecambe Unseen: The Lost Diaries, Jokes and Photographs (Hardcover)
This Book was given to me as a Christmas present several years ago, and I read it over the festive season and made up for the fact that I should have sitting on the couch watching another 'Christmas Special'. Eric was no longer with us since that fateful year of 1984.
It gave a great insight into the private and family man, and I came to the conclusion, that I got what I expected - a true gentleman, even off screen. I had read The Autobiography Of Morecambe and Wise about 1974 which I found hilarious, as it told of their early meeting as young men scrimping and lodging together (..and sardines on toast...don't forget the sardines on toast) that particular book was aimed at the masses of fans, as their show was riding high on the telly, and told in typical Morecambe and Wise conversation style.

Obviously this book is all about the public and private Eric who was never really one hundred per cent satisfied with their routines and strived to do better (How can you improve on perfection?) Always worried about money, not for himself personally, but wanting to make sure his family were OK. I have read quite a lot about M & W, and I have yet to hear a bad word spoken about the man.
Personally believe his loving and caring nature resulted in him being taken from us much too early. If you really want to learn a litte more of 'The Tall One With The Glasses'...then this is for you.

Cherished memories.
