A Bit More … Urrrgh

The Grauniad asks some of those who worked with him to share their memories of the late Ken Russell. Among them, Glenda Jackson, who recalls:

As a director he never said anything very specific. He’d say, “It needs to be a bit more … urrrgh, or a bit less hmmm“, and you knew exactly what he meant.

That’s so true, isn’t it? Paying due attention to the ellipsis, Hooting Yard has been on a constant mission to be a bit more … urrrgh, and a bit less hmmm, and we shall redouble our efforts in memory of the great man, until it’s entirely … urrrgh and there is not  a trace of hmmm whatsoever.
