Ding Dong!

A while ago I bumped into an ex-colleague from Ottakar's who now works for a theatrical agency. When she told me that one of her jobs was to look after Leslie Phillips my ears pricked up, as I'm a big fan of his. 'Is he really like that?' I asked, desperately hoping that she wouldn't tell me that he was either extremely dull or a complete bastard. She related the following anecdote...

Leslie Phillips had been invited to appear at an arts festival and my friend phoned him to see when it would be convenient for him to go. 'Well darling,' he replied 'I'm fine at lunchtimes and I'm fine in the evenings, but between one and four, I'm dangerous.'
