This Sunday, one of my favourite people from this industry would have celebrated his 100th birthday, had his life not ended shortly before his 94th. When I say ‘favourite’, do not infer that he was any kind of friend. Indeed I met him just once when he was spectacularly rude to me, and spoke on just one other occasion when he was spectacularly rude about someone else. But my oh my, does this industry miss characters like Tony Crook.
