Happy Birthday, Peter Cook!

Whether he's discussing the Great Train Robbery, giving the jury instructions or singing in his inimitable style, I adore him.

Seeing Dudley Moore trying to avoid corpsing by wedging that sandwich into his mouth is classic. It never gets old.

I'm also very fond of "tap tap tap at my window... You know who it was? Bloody Greta Garbo".

Bedazzled was just dazzling. And I can't believe they are remaking Arthur!

@Patti -- With Russell Brand, no less. Sigh. That's the Hollywood way: trying new things=bad!

@Real Gone -- how could you not corpse through the entire thing? All the Pete and Dud bits are so much fun, although like the Mini-Cab bit, some of them are weirdly dark, like the Fairy Cobbler sketch from the Christmas special. I read it in the scripts book before I ever saw it and was really intrigued.
