Ye i wasnt complaining bout bruce's skills or anything, i personally adore every imperfection i see in the things that i like, i was just wondering if people noticed things like that. My favourite is the noticably louder ambient background room noise that accompanies 'FORKIT!'.
i thought the dubbing on the breaking glass where marwood throws the shotgun out of the window is pretty poor.
but after listening to the embalmer this aft, i was struck by montys possibly deliberate double-entendre when he tells marwood he wanted "to release him from the legumes and allow him to concentrate on the meat" !!!!
There's only one line I've never got. When they come back from the country and Marwood goes off to phone his agent, Danny asks who he's gone to call. Withnail then seems to say "Squat Betty. His agent."
Remember, the Coalman showed up for court dressed in a caftan and a bell. I'm assuming the Coalman is of African descent i.e. black. So I think he means the black people who founded the black pride movement in the 60's and wore caftans, better known here as dashikis, in wild jungle prints, as a sign of pride in their heritage.
What I don't understand.....When Withnail offers to phone Uncle Monty while Marwood goes to the bog.He casually asks M for ten quid.
Ten quid for a starving thespian would be a fortune in 1969....for a phone call and a couple of drinks ???
