    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • In 1988, John Le Mesurier's widow Joan called her autobiography Lady Don't Fall Backwards. In it she tells of her affair with Tony Hancock.

      • Lady Don't Fall Backwards was written by Darcy Sarto (according to the book cover) or D'Arcy Sarto (according to the memorial plaque).

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Hancock: I read thrillers purely as a relaxation between the heavy stuff. I find that 50 pages of Dead Dames Don't Talk a perfect hors d'oeuvre for an all night bash at Bertram Russell.


        Sid: Bertram Russell? Didn't he write Kiss The Blood Off My Hands?

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Lady Don't Fall Backwards is clearly a spoof of Lady Don't Turn Over by Darcy Glinto, a pseudonym for Harold Ernest Kelly. In 1942 Kelly was found guilty of writing two obscene books, one of which was Lady Don't Turn Over. Galton and Simpson discovered the naughty book while recovering from TB in a sanatorium.
