This Monday evening the members of Clacton Arts and Literary Society were kept amused by Colin Sell (I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue’s pianist). During his presentation of ‘Laughter in the One and Nines’, Colin showed his favourite British comedy film clips from the fifties and sixties. Explaining the storyline behind the clip he also explored the laughter-makers of our cinema screen and how their past experience both on stage and screen influenced their performances. From ‘The Belles of St. Trinian’s’ starring Alastair Sim (playing both the male and female parts), to the 1908 black and white silent film ‘Dog outwits the Kidnapper’ in which, much to the members delight, Colin played a Melodica providing the dynamic music as a backdrop to the film. The evening was truly entertaining.
