These are certainly sad times, it almost makes you fear what tomorrow might bring.

Jack Wild was most famous perhaps as the Artful Dodger in the film musical Oliver! and of course in the wonderful HR Pufnstuf.
He had been struggling for some time against cancer of the mouth.





So Sad.

So very sad.   This week has been dreadful for the passing of people in the public eye.

Here in the Uk we lost Linda Smith a very clever comedienne and writer.  Also to cancer.

Very sad news.. Oliver was such a big movie when I was a kid and I've probably watched it  a dozen times on tv since.. and I'm not even a big fan of musicals. Jack was so good as the artful dodger...

I vaguely remember pufnstuff.. very sureal. Is that a clue in the title  ;)
