Personal Quote:

Ronnie Barker and I didn't have to knock booze on the head, or go into the Priory to overcome drug addiction. We're fortunate we were quite grown up, family men with children, and lucky with our wives before we had what you might call a touch of fame. We were never temperamental, fractious, or walked out slamming doors. We were fussy, though. We wanted everything doing properly. See more »

Trivia:

Despite his small stature, Corbett served in the Royal Air Force as a commissioned officer during his National Service. See more »
