Sir Clement Freud

There is a more political note on the local party web-site, but here is a trivial footnote to Sir Clement's remarkable career as bon viveur and gambler (which I hope I can beat Jonathan Calder to). In 1957, he made his film debut, uncredited, as a croupier in "True as a Turtle". This was followed by three further appearances as either croupier or chemin-de-fer dealer. There must be a tale to be told here.

There are more Clement Freud stories here and here. It would be advisable not to be eating or drinking near a keyboard when reading them.
