It’s amazing where a simple thought can lead you. I’ve just been over at Llewtrah’s clogging up her comments box about the ‘minced Corgi incident‘ which was featured on the news earlier this week. Which then led me to mention the ‘poodle-pie eating incident‘ with Robert Morley in the very famous Hammer film ‘Theatre of Blood‘. I use to love Hammer Horror films as a child despite the fact I used to scare myself rigid by watching them in the dark and having to peep through my hands that were covering my face for most of the film. I guess we used to make our own ‘themed’ nights in those days……..So off I trot to youtube in search of that infamous scene thinking I might put it up on here for everyone to laugh at. But instead I got side-tracked by Kate Bush’s performance of Hammer Horror in 1979. I wonder who the man in the balaclava and dance tights was? Of course I would never slag off the Mighty Bush but this clip made me laugh almost as much as if I had found the clip of Robert Morley being forced to eat poodle pie. Enjoy it for all is datedness – late 70’s picture feedback trails, dodgy interpretive dancing and Kate almost asphyxiating balaclava man with her mighty boosh of hair flicking.
