Sobering statistics on

Re-Tweeting Mr Tovey

Above: Please click the picture to enlarge and read. There is a Twitter-endorsed statistical device which shows how many Re-Tweets have occurred to Tweets posted by Russell Tovey. Of late Russell has Re-Tweeted promotional items concerning his circle of media and arts friends. Not too many Tovey followers are interested in Russell's friend's projects. By comparison the last statistic shows people are still Re-Tweeting an item which showcases Russell. Having looked through all the items posted by Russell on Twitter the second highest item Re-Tweeted was his recent birthday picture which is up to 64 Re-Tweets. To get to "trending" level on Twitter over 100 Re-Tweets have to be lodged.

Dame Margaret Rutherford

Tom in Oz reporting from Polperro Cornwall. Today Mrs Oz and I went from Exeter to Plymouth, to donate a copy of my reference book "History of the Lifeboats Service in Oz," to the Plymouth Central Library (near Drake Circus shopping centre), then after refreshments, we went out for a day of movie location sightseeing.

If you have read the blurb at the side of the blog page you'll know that I am a huge Russell Tovey fan but my childhood idol was Dame Margaret Rutherford. The very first movie I ever saw that starred Margaret Rutherford was a black & white feature called "Miranda." This was a big hit in Oz because the movie co-starred two Aussie actors: Googie Withers and her husband John McCallum.

The town of Polperro featured in the first movie and was also used in the second colour movie about Miranda the mermaid called "Mad About Men."

Maybe the reason I like Russell Tovey so much is because one of the lead male actors in the first movie was David Tomlinson who had stick-out ears! Whatever it was, both Miranda movies left a mark on me when I was an impressionable 6 years old boy.
