Bell- Bottom George.

Tickety's Tip Top Tunes

This weeks sheet music is actually from the very first George Formby film I ever saw. Of course it goes with out saying that I became an even bigger fan after watching it! I now have the dvd box sets!!!!

the sheet music....

In this clip our George has been asked to sing a song on behalf of his ships company for their BBC radio performance....

I think you can watch the film in it's entirety on the tube, if you so wish! But I hold no responsibility if you are bored by the end or even after the rather lovely overture- I am quite aware that he's like Marmite and not to every ones taste.. Bless him!

If you do watch it, or have seen the film, then look out for the most perfect fox terrier EVER.
What could be better for a hat fancier like myself, than a dog that pinches hats... huh?
(Disclaimer: I do not advocate the nicking of hats or any other vintage apparel (or anything!)- ''I'm a good girl'' she said as she tilted her head, fluttered her lashes, and smiled ever so really, I am!)

... and because I just had to show you...
The pooch about to pounce upon George's hat!

....turned out nice again!

  1. Oooh, I do love a bit of Marmite and I love a bit of that cheeky chappy George too! That pup is to adorable I shall keep my eye out for him! x

  2. I appreciate him a lot more after a great documentary I saw on him recently, he was a great guy - he insisted on playing to mixed and black audiences in South Africa during Apartheid

  3. I haven't seen this film but I'm tempted now just to see the dog! :)

  4. I like a bit of Formby, and a bit of Marmite too.

    As Miss Simmonds Says remarks, yopu have to admire his anti-apartheid stand too. Not just a great entertainer, but a decent man.

  5. awww, the dog is adorable! thanks for sharing this movie!

  6. Ahhhh, m'lady, thank you for your kind words, they were much appreciated! I hope you're having a splendid time in all this darn rain we're having - of course, a rainy day is just an excuse to snuggle up with a Horlicks and George! xxx


Ta very much for your messages folks!
