terrier Do Brits remember George Formby? (155* d) RE: Do Brits remember George Formby? 17 Sep 11

George Formby, prior to his musical career, was a racing jockey, a fact that my old Gran never missed a chance to tell me as a younster. Maybe that's why some of his films were based around stable yards and racetracks.
It struck me as coincidental that an old thread has been ressurected on Mudcat, regarding Percy French, who died at Formby, in Lancashire. That was of course the town that George (Hoy Booth) took as his stage name.
