Hm. My father forbade me to go to RADA because of what was known in the
fifties as the "hive" that was supposed to more or less control the
London theatre. Sir John G., already knighted, was arrested in one of
the smellier public lavatories, and many other lesser lights of the
stage and screen were hounded by the vigilant police of the sinful city.
Vipers and snakes they were not, but bees? As Sir is made to say in "The
Dresser", 'I hold no brief for buggers.' "B"'s, then, I presume?
