Although Ian Carmichael appeared in a number of films, there's one scene I will never forget. I think the film was Private's Progress and the scene was when the sergeant found him in the barrack room and asked why, he replied "I was feeling a little fragile sergeant"
I must have missed the remainder of the film, I was still laughing.
Yes, I was sad to hear of the passing of Ian Carmichael, he always made me smile, especially in one of my favourite films, School For Scoundrels when he starred with Alastair Sim (the master) and Terry Thomas. I don't really know a lot about Mr. Dankworth as I'm not a Jazz lover but of course I was aware of him and the good works he and his wife Dame Cleo Lane were involved in. Sympathies to both their families.
