Ferris the film buff ...

Ferris the film critic has been at work:

"I was surprised to see that Crickley Hill Man had posted a still from the seminal Ealing comedy 'It Ain't 'Arf Tepid, Mum' on his blog, doubtless in error. However, film aficionados will be pleased to see this still of the classic scene in which Private Arwel (played by Frank Pike) puts his back out while delivering a wheelbarrow load of plastic, anti-conker safety goggles to school-mistress Mrs Anderson (a bewitching Keira Knightley). Film buffs will also relish the first screen appearance of Phillip Seymour Hoffman, playing the Boy in the Stripey jumper who eventually comes to Private Arwel's aid by applying the Heimlich manoeuvre to his back, unfortunately then putting Arwel in hospital, in traction, for the next six months, much to the amusement of the other members of the hapless wartime concert party."
