Mr. Palin, we've met and I have one more question... by bloggermouth on 13 March 2006 6:01pm
 
Our first encounter was in Manchester at a book store where you and Basil signed my copy of Pole to Pole. I was a tad gobstruck at the time, very unusual for me, my brother-in-law was in fine form and made you laugh until you were red in the face. A few years later I met you at a Chapters in Toronto where you signed my copy of Hemingway Adventure. I was the fellow who was standing next to you when you were being interviewed on Global. When I handed you my copy of Pole to Pole I purchased in the UK, you informed that it was very valuable and kindly added to the signature saying "P.S. K-k-k-ken did not steal this book." I want to add that for years people could no longer pronounce my name correctly. Aside from being a Monty Python fan, I have to admit that I thoroughly enjoyed your travels and how you portrayed them. Thank you.

Now for my question. My wife and I bought a copy of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang for our sons to watch. There is a scene called "The Old bamboo" where a man drops some coins in Dick Van Dykes' hat and says "Thank you very much". Was that person you? I know it is a simple question but I keep forgetting to ask everytime we meet.

No mention of him in the credits. It was a very small part and I doubt there were acting credits for it. It was pre-python too, so I am expecting that Mr. Palin was getting his feet wet at the time.

I went on a site to check for you (they listed uncredited stars too) and no mention of Michael!


They could've missed him though!

Only way is to ask the great man himself I guess!
