This morning I posted a quiz on my blog Liberal England. The prize is a copy of James Hogg's biography of James Robertson Justice. I thought this quiz might be of interest to readers of your blog, and I'd be very grateful if you could mention it. The link is:
Jonathen's Blog LIBERAL ENGLAND has this:
Win James Robertson Justice
...or at least his biography, in the latest Liberal England quiz.
James Robertson Justice (1907-75; henceforth JRJ) was a British film actor, famous for his portrayal of the fearsome Sir Lancelot Spratt in the Doctor films of the 1950s and 60s. He was much else besides: a professional racing driver, a soldier in the Spanish civil war, a Labour parliamentary candidate, falconry tutor to the young Prince Charles.
To win his biography (only one prize this time, I am afraid) just identify these five films in which he appeared.
1. A story of British heroism with a celebrated score by Sir Ralph Vaughan Williams.
2. In this Ealing Comedy JRJ, spoke the great line: "It's a well-known medical fact that some men are born two drinks below par."
3. This lesser-known Ealing Comedy starred a small boy called William Fox who grew up to be James Fox - and Billie Piper's father in law. (JRJ appeared under the pseudonym Seamus Mòr na Feusag.)
4. In this film JRJ asked "You - what's the bleeding time" and Dirk Bogarde replied "Ten past ten, sir."
5. A classic family musical that also featured Stanley Unwin, Max Wall and Benny Hill.
Please e-mail me your answers.
The quiz closes at 23:59 on Monday 27 July 2009.
