A tits-and-feathers man





...It was showbiz rather than acting that had the greater appeal for him. "I'm a tits-and-feathers man really," he explained. He loved the Tiller Girls, who were his idea of glamour, and blamed the Beatles for making show-business less glamorous."
The marvellous John Inman would have been 85 years old today.

All together, now... "I'm Free!"

Frederick John Inman (28th June 1935 – 8th March 2007)

    1. He was such a great entertainer! I must admit, however, that although Are You Being Served was a hoot for the first few years, it went on far, far too long. It's a shame we never got to see him on stage in Panto, really. Judging by his "turns" on The Good Old Days, we missed a treat. Jx

    Would have loved to have seen him in Panto too.
