I always like Benny Hill, he was inventive, clever and very funny but later on he just didn't move with the times. One thing he did was a lazy man who wouldn't budge for a heavily pregnant wife trying to open a gate bringing him a drink. It was sped up to look silly but I just looked at it and thought this just isn't funny. I think after that he went downhill-so to speak. The tabloids really went for the jugular and that was almost the beginning of the end. I don't think anyone really appreciated just what he brought to British comedy which captured us and the world's imagination and perhaps if had he had changed his outlook, he might still be around. A sad end to a world-famous clown loved by all.
