Hi everyone. I am new to this forum, so please be gentle with me. I'm a devotee of Last of the Summer Wine and consider it to be the finest sitcom of all time, bar none. I just wanted to relay to you all a story from late last year. We decided to make a Christmas comedy film, with our two young autistic daughters in the lead roles. To cut a long story short, we ended up with a 97-minute feature film, which received two big-screenings and made money for a children’s charity. The film was boosted by the on-screen and vocal contributions of a number of celebrities, all of whom took part without payment of any kind. Among these were Juliette Kaplan and Russ Abbot. Juliette kindly recorded a spoken introduction to the film... it was so much appreciated. Beautifully delivered. And Russ Abbot devoted a considerable amount of time to filming a very funny scene which went down extremely well with the cinema audience. I have to report that Russ was an absolute gentleman, and phoned me on numerous occasions to discuss the scene and how it would be filmed. In short, more evidence that the stars of LOTSW are every bit as likeable off-screen as on.
