Trivia

The role of Pujol was offered to Ron Moody who turned it down because he thought it would spoil his image. Leonard Rossiter, however, had no such concerns, and tackled the role with relish. See more »

A man of his time
19 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I think Leonard Rossiter played this role to perfection. No one else could have coped in the same way I wish I had a copy, I lost mine some time ago His facial expressions said it all. It was said that a doctor had to be present when the original artist appeared in Paris and I can well believe it as I was in serious trouble and doubled up with laughter and unable to breathe. Who can give you a belly laugh nowadays on TV or in theatre. It is all snide humour or camp with giggles being the limit one can expect. The man was a true comedian and will never be replaced.It seems all the best artists of this type have moved on over with the exception of Ken Dodd who can still incapacitate his audience to this day.
