GUEST,Mr Red Obit: Norman Painting (Phil Archer) 29.10.09 (25) RE: Obit: Norman Painting (Phil Archer) 29.10.09 30 Oct 09

I am amazed no-one has mentioned his "Fight them on the beaches" speach.

Apparently Churchill was far too busy to turn up at the studio at the right time and have the enemy know where he was, maybe. So they recorded it and he was still too busy so they got an actor to mimic him. Churchill was most complimentary on the likeness including the expelling of air through the sides of his teeth on certain phonemes.

That actor was Norman Painting.
