Subject: RE: BS: My claim to fame - whats yours?
I just remembered. My husband was an extra in the film "Kidnapped" starring Michael Caine with an appalling Scottish accent (Ah it's great to be back wiv the locks and the 'evver). He was in the post battle scene when there are hundreds of bodies strewn around the hillside; they had to shoot the scene hundreds of times because somebody would cough or sneeze or scratch their arses when they were supposed to be dead. He got paid ten bob a day (that's 50p to you weans)and all the bacon rolls he could eat, but if he'd had a big red beard he'd have got two bob more
