THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME

Lists have been compiled before regarding the most influential people of all time. Who would you like to suggest, it can be anyone from any time.

One in my list would be Winston Churchill

Unfortunately, if you want the most influential of all time. Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin would have to be on that list.

Well, seeing as we're doing Scots (and Edinburghers) we had better have David Hume, James Hutton, James Braidwood, Alexander Graham Bell and Tony Blair (damn him to hell).

Well, Rowlanda, he always said "The buck stops here."

Honest politician? Maybe you aren't old enough to remember the scandal because of his involvement in the political machine of Tom Pendergast.

In hind sight I think Harry Truman probably was the right man for the jcountry at the time. But he didn't get the job being entirely squeaky clean.

Charlie Chaplin gets my vote, though Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd are right behind. And then, Chuck Jones, Friz Freleng and Mel Blanc.

And Jacques Tati and Laurel & Hardy. Okay, that's it now.

Er, no... George Carlin, too.

That's it.

And Steve Martin, but only when he's doing that bit in The Jerk where he takes the lamp, and all the other silly stuff...

Yep, that's all folks.

Many moons ago, I studied how to fall down without actually injuring yourself too badly. My stunt instructor used to say that Buster Keaton was" the only man who could fall down twice at the same time".
Always loved him saying that.

Great saying!

Reminds of that story where he fractured one of the vertebrae in his neck, I think filming Sherlock, Jr in a stunt involving a train watering pipe. Anyway, he just had a bad headache and called off shooting for the rest of the day and was back to work the next. Years later a doctor asked him, "When did you break your neck?" And Buster had no idea he ever had.
