Here is Jimmy James the teesside born 'comedians comedian' performing his classic 'drunk' routine (from 1936). It was a sketch along with his 'In the Box' routine which he performed on stage and TV for years. He also reprised it in the John E. Blakeley/Mancunian Films production of 'Over the Garden Wall' (1950). SEE: http://www.angelfire.com/ab7/history_... for details of the John E. Blakeley / Mancunian story 'Hooray for Jollywood'. ------ "The book is a splendid evocation of a golden era of Mancunian and Lancastrian humour a book I could happily read over and over again". (Manchester Evening News). ***** "a must for all movie buffs". (Tameside Reporter). ***** "This book is a 'must-have' for anybody interested in the subject matter contained here. I cannot think of any other work which so comprehensively tells us about this much-missed man and the films he made". (Peter Pollard - George Formby Society).
