He had a great lecherous voice.

He was The Sorting Hat in Harry Potter movies

Terry Thomas and Leslie Phillips were real characters.  Always enjoyed their films.

I remember reading that Terry Thomas was very ill towards the end of his life and had to sell his house to cover bills.  He had to move into a rented 3 room unfurnished flat until friends got together to put on a concert for him and the proceeds went to pay for a place for him at a nursing home where he died.

There was a brilliant series on the BBC about the old school comedians, dramas. Michael Sheen played Kenneth Williams, David Walliams played Frankie Howerd, there was a Steptoe one as well. The historical accuracy was dubious but the acting was brilliant, particularly Sheen as Kenneth Williams who was exceptional.
