News On Updates

Posted in Personal Message at 7:13 am by Luke

Work on the site has been going slowly over the holidays, for which i apologise. While some of it has to do with technical difficulties I’ve been experiencing here in Greece, at least as much has to do with the fact that Dad (that is to say Nicol) and I have been having such a good time down here that work has become somewhat secondary to the enjoyment of life and good company!

I do have some promising news, however, and that is that in the next few weeks I will have completed a video interview with Nicol and several videos containing excerpts of almost all his movies, including the never before seen Berthold Brecht film Arturo Ui.

Also the next few months will see more music, prose, poetry and photographs of Nicol’s including audio clips from The Hobbit, Jack- A  Night on the Town with John Barrymore, a reading of selected Lawrence Durrell, and other tidbits I’ve been able to dig up. So keep checking in, and thanks for visiting our newborn website!

All the best,

    Hello Luke,

    I have tried to contact you about your dad on another link, this is belt and braces.

    My first memory of your father …. I would be 5 and he would be 10 and he was doing a strange dance that I had never seen before. His mother shouted at him and said “stop that jitterbugging around”, I had never heard the name before and somehow it has stuck in my mind. It was a dance brought to the UK by American serviceman during the 2nd world war.

    That was over 60 years ago but to this day when one of Nicols films comes on tv I do 2 things. First I say to my wife ” I used to play with him” and then remember that small event that happend years ago.

    Yours john

    We have just returned from Lindos where we met Nicol in Sinatra’s Bar. We live in Rutherglen and it turns out that Nicol used to travel through from Hamilton. We also attended his swing concert at the Lindos amphitheatre and had a great night in spectacular surroundings. Give our regards and if speaking to Peggy and Mike in Sinatra’s please say hello. We are the Scottish couple who visit whenever we are on holiday in Pefkos.

    Hi, Luke,

    Your Dad was a comet in my teenage sky. I saw his ‘Inadmissable Evidence’ in London: the greatest stage performance I’ve ever seen.

    Tell me that he’s enjoying life and I’ll be happy.
