a fine comic who deserves to be remembered and enjoyed

Not many people today remember George Formby (especially here) but he was a delight. Sort of a Lancashire Harold Lloyd. Ok, the films aren't Shakespeare but they're a welcome bit of fun. Formby always plays the same character but there's nothing wrong with that when it's this much fun. I have a friend near Blackpool who said that in retirement Formby was a kind man who appreciated his fans, unlike these arrogant ones today with only a fraction of his talent.
