I Met Hendry In A Pub Too
11 June 2011 | by (london) – See all my reviews

One evening many years ago i went into the long vanished Prince Albert pub in Golders Green Road.There swaying unsteadily was Ian Hendry looking very much the worse for wear and obviously drunk,offering to serve me.His career by that time was on the way down the drain to a great extent because of this drinking habit.Such a shame as he clearly had a lot of talent as shown by this film.What his career might have amounted to if he had been given some of the parts he was turned down for is now just conjecture.This is a very enjoyable film with lots of sparkling performances from familiar faces.With regard to the topless bath scene i wonder whether the version circulating was the continental version.Film directors would usually shoot 2 versions of such scenes.One more chaste for the British censor to approve,without any nudity,and one for the continent where it could all hang out !
