3: The individual Impresario with the voices of Harold Fielding: I don'think one would be a good impresario if one had all successes, you'd get too cocky, you'd get to believe that you couldn'go wrong - you must be pulled up by these flops. Ray Cook : He's like a dynamo, I mean he's like a whirlwind, a white tornado - he's incredible, he races round that office - he laughs, he shrieks, he jumps up and down. When he's angry he stamps his feet, and bashes the table and says, No, no, no, I will not have it,' and then he laughs and says, ' Hat'e a drink.' Joe Brown about' Charlie Girl ': I never thought we'd get to the West End at all, but we did. It was a good effort all round, but I think it was mainly down to Fielding's guts that brought the thing off. and Ian Bevan , Joan Preston Research BILL SULLIVAN Written by FRANK SALTER Producer DAVID RAYVERN ALLEN
