How apt; a shot of Peter Sellers, an enigma to all of his supporters and friends. No one knew what face or character Peter would play next. Very much like the Dan Christie we all knew.
Not knowing the reason Dan chose this pic, we can only guess but this is a shot from a movie called “I’m all right Jack”. Wikipedia describes the movie thusly: “The film is a satire on British industrial life in the 1950s. The trade unions, workers and bosses are all seen to be incompetent or corrupt to varying degrees. The film is one of a number of satires made by the Boulting Brothers between 1956 and 1963. The title is a well-known English expression indicating smug and complacent selfishness, with an implied “fuck you!”.
How else can we describe the public persona of Dan.
We at the BR would like to say to Marnie, his wife, and his children – thank you for helping us have Dan for as long as we did. All of the arrangements have not been confirmed yet but this guy deserves a big turnout whenever the family decide to celebrate his life, he cannot be allowed to go quietly into the night.
