David Lodge

David Lodge (David William Frederick Lodge) b Stroud nr Rochester, Kent 19/8/1921  d  Northwood, Middlesex 18/10/2003 

David was the son of a well known Orator in the Royal Navy and his mother was a singer. As a child David attended St Nicholas School in Golden Square, London and he enjoyed singing comic songs in school concerts. Whilst at school he worked as a paperboy and butcher’s assistant. When he left school he joined the Post Office and delivered telegrams all over London. When war broke out David had grown to six feet with the physique to match and joined the RAF.

He was heard singing in the bath one evening by a pianist called Teddy Rubach who invited him to sing in his band, this was the start of a long career of over fifty years in the business. By the end of the war David was one of twelve members of Ralph Reader’s Gang Show, which also included Dick Emery and a young drummer called Peter Sellers, David was a life long close friend to Peter Sellers until his death in 1980, Sellers often assured David was in his films and in 1964 he was best man at Seller’s wedding to Britt Ekland.

On being demobbed David worked in rep, holidays camps and was even a clown and ringmaster, he even worked in Ireland as part of a double act. He came back to Britain and had a small part in the comedy Orders Are Orders (1954), it also gave two young rising comedy stars an early appearance, these being Tony Hancock and Peter Sellers, David was to go on and appear in well over a hundred films, though often he was only a minor support player and he was never cast in a lead role. David said of himself that he was unattractive and ineligible for romantic roles, insisting "this ugly mug of mine gets me the meaty parts".

His early years generally involved him being cast in war films. In 1955 he starred in The Cockleshell Heroes but by the end of the fifties he was starting to attract comedy roles. In 1958 he was in the comedy Girls At Sea  which starred Ronald Shiner and Michael Hordern. Later that year he starred in Ice Cold In Alex an adventure war film that starred John Mills, Sylvia Sims and Anthony Quayle. In 1959 he starred in I’m All Right Jack which starred his friend Peter Sellers, Ian Carmichael and Irene Handl.

He was paired up with Peter Sellers and Bernard Cribbins in Two Way Stretch in 1960, the following year he appeared in the first of five Carry On’s starting with Regardless, later in the year he played a cab driver in Raising The Wind. In 1962 he even appeared in a couple of episodes of Benny Hill’s television series. He was reunited with Peter Sellers in the Pink Panther film A Shot in The Dark in 1964. The following year he played a stage manager in The Intelligence Men. He had bit parts in The Wrong Box (1966), Casino Royale (1967) he also appeared in The Avengers(1967-69), The Champions (1969) and Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) (1970).

He played a Colonel in the horror, Incense for the Damned in 1970, the following year he was cast as PC Poppy in the comedy series Tottering Towers. He was excellent as Mr. Wickens in The Amazing Mr. Blunden, Diana Dors played his wife in the film, (which also starred a young Lynne Frederick who was to become Peter Sellers last wife). In 1975 he starred in a bit role in The Return of the Pink Panther and later that year appeared in seven episodes of Carry On Laughing. In 1976 he played Captain Bull in his last Carry On film in England.

Then in 1979 he played Hector Dent in the comedy series Lovely Couple and from 1975 to 1980 he was regular member of the cast in Q which was written by and starred former Goon, Spike Milligan.  As the eighties went on David was seen less and less on the screens he did however write his own autobiography in 1986 entitled ‘Up The Ladder To Obscurity’. His last screen appearance was in Lovejoy in 1993. 

For many years he lived as a bachelor with his parents and a budgerigar in Winchmore Hill, North London. However, in June 1963, while working in Yugoslavia on the Viking epic The Long Ships, alongside Richard Widmark and Oscar Homolka, he surprised everyone, after a whirlwind 24-hour courtship, he proposed to a French journalist and ex-model Lyn Guillermin, to whom he remained devoted to her until her death in 1996.

Liz Fraser

 

Liz Fraser   (Elizabeth Joan Winch) b London 14/8/1930

Blonde, busty Liz has had a colourful career as an actress, London born, she attended a girls grammar school and later studied acting at The London School of Dramatic Art, leaving she started her professional career in  repertory theatre in Accrington. Liz made her screen debut in an uncredited role in Touch And Go in 1955 a comedy film which starred Jack Hawkins. It is mainly comedy that has sustained Liz throughout her career. Her first big screen role came in 1959 when she played Cynthia Kite in I’m All Right Jack with Peter Sellers, Terry Thomas and Ian Carmichael.

She followed this role the following year by appearing with Peter Sellers again in Two Way Stretch. Liz also appeared in a number of the comedy series Hancock’s Half Hour from 1956 until 1960, a series which also starred Sid James whom she would be paired up with in a number of comedies. In 1960 she appeared as Leonorora in Doctor In Love and shared many scenes with Joan Sims. Later that year she appeared in another British comedy film classic The Bulldog Breed with Norman Wisdom, and she was also paired up that year playing Sid James girlfriend in the comedy series Citizen James. Liz completed a busy 1960 by appearing in The Pure Hell of St Trinian’s.

The following year she appeared in the Tony Hancock film, The Rebel and she also made the first of her four Carry On appearances starting with Regardless, later that year again played Sid James’s girlfriend in the comedy film Double Bunk as Sandra. This film also starred Ian Carmichael and Thora Hird’s daughter Janette Scott in the lead roles. The film title also became a record hit for Sid James with Liz adding some vocals. In 1962 she played Glad Trimble in Carry on Cruising which I think was her best contribution to the series, later that year she appeared in another successful British comedy film The Amorous Prawn again starring with Ian Carmichael, and also Joan Greenwood and veteran actor Dennis Price.

In 1963 Liz appeared in Carry On Cabby and this would be her last until one final appearance in Behind in 1975. In 1969 she appeared in Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased), in 1970 she appeared in a number of The Benny Hill Show episodes in various roles, Liz also added an appearance in The Goodies. Liz played Mrs. Pike in the film version of Dads Army in 1971, and starred in an episode of Jason King with Patrick Wyngarde. By the mid seventies Liz appeared in many of the low budget sex comedies which included Confessions Of A Driving Instructor (1976), Adventures Of A Taxi Driver (1976), Under The Doctor (1976),  Confessions From A Holiday Camp (1977) and Adventures Of A Private Eye (1977).

Happily as the seventies ended Liz stared to appear in some non comedy roles such as The Professionals (1979), Miss Marple (1987), The Bill (1994) and her last screen appearance was in Holby City in 2007. She has been dogged by ill health in recent years. In her private life has been married twice her second husband Michael Hitchcock died suddenly in 1974 and Liz has been a widower since. In 2012 Liz published her own autobiography entitled Liz Fraser ….and other characters. In the book she openly admits to have a good retirement due to her dealings on the stock market, which over the years has made her a fairly wealthy lady.

Bob Todd

Bob Todd (Brian Todd)   b Faversham, Kent 15/12/1921 d Sussex 11/10/1992

Leaving school Bob trained to be a dentist before serving in the war as an RAF Navigator. After the war ended Bob made money from cattle breeding whilst working as a manager at London Airport. However the business failed and at the age of forty two Bob needed a new career and he turned to acting. He made his screen debut in Michael Bentine’s comedy series It’s A Square World in 1960. He also got a lucky break when he met comedy writers Ray Galton and Alan Simpson who had written the Hancock series and were soon to write the new comedy series Steptoe and Son. Bob bluffed them into believing that he was in fact an actor and ended up with the part of a policeman in the Sid James comedy series Citizen James in 1961.

As a result of this Bob’s career was launched as he was  consequently used as a  stooge in The Dick Emery Show and The Mike and Bernie Winters Show, before joining The Benny Hill Show in 1969, and he would be known for playing a straight man. Bob was best known  for his lugubrious expression and talent for slapstick, and was known to his fellow comedians by the nickname "Silly Todd". Bob was to appear in over seventy different productions in his career. Early screen appearances include an uncredited role in the comedy film Raising The Wind (1961), and on television he was in Comedy Playhouse (1962). In 1965 he starred as a policeman in Morecombe and Wise’s film The Intelligence Men.

In 1969 he made his debut in The Benny Hill Show and stayed with the show on and off until 1991 shortly before Benny’s death, Bob gained a reputation for drunkenness while working on 'The Benny Hill Show'. He once failed to turn up for a London Palladium show after a 'drinking episode', and eventually turned up in a Dublin hospital five days later. After this was reported in the media, Hill had Bob dropped from the show. Producer Dennis Kirkland persuaded Hill to rescind the decision, saying Bob brought much to the show and his drinking rarely affected his work.

Also in 1969 he plays the patient on the breathing apparatus in Carry On Again Doctor, you do not see much of his face but can still clearly tell it is him, although this would be his only film contribution, he would return to Carry On Again Christmas made for television the following year. Also in 1970 he starred as Mr. Pollard in seven episodes of the comedy series The Best Things In Life, the series also starred Harry H Corbett and June Whitfield. From 1969 until 1970 Bob also starred in Bernard Cribbin’s comedy show Cribbins, he appeared in all twelve episodes over two series.

The following year Bob played various characters in Marty Feldman’s show The Marty Feldman Comedy Machine which ran until 1972. Later in 1972 Bob was given his own television series called In For A Penny but the series only ran for one series. In 1972 Bob starred in the comedy films Mutiny On The Buses, Go For A Take and That’s Your Funeral. Then in 1974 he was a regular member of the cast in another short lived comedy series called Doctor At Sea, a spin off the Doctor series which starred Robin Nedwell and Geoffrey Davies. Bob also starred in a couple of sex comedies The Ups and Downs of a Handyman (1975), Confessions of a Pop Performer (1976) and Rosie Dixon – Night Nurse (1978). In 1979 he was a cast regular in Spike Milligan’s series Q5.

In 1981 he was cast as Billy Strothers in the comedy series Funny Man which starred Jimmy Jewel and Jean Boht. Later in 1983 he played a dignified gent in Superman III. His appearances by now were becoming scarce and he made his final screen appearance in Benny Hill’s World Tour: New York! in 1991. Bob was married to Monica and the couple had two sons and a daughter, he died six months after Benny Hill in 1992. Bob was immortalised on record by half Man Half Biscuit when they made a song about him called ‘99% of Gargoyles Look Like Bob Todd’ in 1985 and perhaps just as surprising is that Bob was 6 feet 2 inches tall.
