Alias Jason King (older viewers will know) has passed away aged 90. Pioneer of the handlebar moustache so many copied in the 1970s

the advert for Tabac aftershave with the voice over " Peter Wyngarde smells ............ great! He uses Tabac aftershave" spoofing his Jason King character was rather amusing back in the 70s ..... sadly, cant find a tyoutube clip, so heres a bottle of Tabac aftershave instead ... RIP

He used to have a house in Sutton Courtenay, opposite the Swan pub.

One evening in the early seventies, I got pissed (as a young underage drinker) and bashed on his door, shouting something along the lines of "Come out Jason King, I know you're in there" whilst doing kung-fu moves.

He didn't answer.........................

It was the perm, droopy Mexican moustache and silk paisley smoking jacket that gave it away. Me not him.
looked a bit like that Meerkat off the tv advert ( without the perm) then?:)

Where did you get that picture of me from?

Good 'tache though, considering I was only 15 at the time. I've still got the smoking jacket, but the hair went years ago!

You mean, he was a gay man in the unforgiving 70's along with his lover Alan Bates, of 10 years, who in todays's society would have been accepted? If you're going to quote dubious headlines at least do your homework.
