Stanley Holloway: The Monologues: The Man: The Music

From his early frolics with the concert party group "The Co-optimists" through his extraordinary successes in the now legendary EALING COMEDIES like "The Lavendar Hill Mob" To the Broadway classic 'My Fair Lady' Stanley's endearing and unique talent led him ever upwards to rub shoulders with the cream of showbiz such as Crosby, Coward, Chevalier, Olivier, Groucho Marx, and Audrey Hepburn. DAVE SEALEY, sometimes as narrator, sometimes as the man himself , takes us through Stanley's roller coaster ride to fame , meeting on the way such old friends as Sam Small (Pick 'oop thy musket) and Albert Ramsbottom (Yon lion's et Albert) and classic monologues such as 'My word you do look queer', 'Three 'appence a foot', and songs like 'With 'er 'ead tucked underneath 'er arm' and 'With a Little Bit of Luck'.
