I was just thinking last week how I would like to compile a list
of Tennis Matches from Film and TV over the years. I have absolutely no idea
how many I will include but here goes!. Without doubt, the Tennis Match from
the original “School for Scoundrels” match is one of my favorite celluloid
scenes about the phenomenon of obnoxious gamesmanship in tennis. Many years
later my wife and I lived in the same apartment block as Ian Carmichael in
London. He kept a pied a terre for when he was down from the North doing plays
in the London West End. We were at Number 2 and he at Number 7. I could barely
stop myself from calling out “Hard Cheese” as we passed on the stairs
Just in case the above clip was not enough here is another classic
from British Comedians Eric and Ernie, one of many many silly routines that
kept us and our parents amused during the late 60’s and 70’s. Eric and Ernie
pretty much turned their hand to anything and were dearly loved by all.
Ah! the good old days. It makes you want to grab your old Slazenger out of its
press and lace up your Dunlop Green Flash.
