Marty Feldman was a friend whom I miss very much. He was a comic genius and truly gentle soul. Not many Americans know that in his homeland, Marty was the British equivalent of Woody Allen... namely an accomplished writer and performer. Marty's seminal BBC series laid the foundation for "Monty Python" as many of its members worked on his writing staff.
Marty should never be forgotten and the full true nature of his incredible talent should forever stay on our radar. He was much more than "Aye-Gore."
I'm sharing some rarities in my possession that Marty gave me back in the seventies. Here's a sketch involving a bomb squad wherein you'll see a lot of the influence Marty yielded onto "Python"... as well as the influence Buster Keaton had on Marty. Note Marty's resemblence to the silent film icon in a few of his closeups.
