    Hi Guys

    As if I haven't got enough on my shelves of shame all in various states of WIP , now a total of 25


    So I thought I would add another ...this is of course Yul Brynner in the role of the King of Siam in the film THE KING AND I

    Wow, always loved Yul and I truly believe "The Hood" from the Thunderbirds was formed after Brenners likeness.

    That was only one of the many pop culture in-jokes that Gerry and Sylvia Anderson shoehorned into their shows.
    Now, who was "Lady Penelope" based on?

    Congrats.
    It was indeed easy enough - if you'r a fan of, and familiar with, 1960's pop culture.
