Brilliant! Thanks Namparagirl, really enjoyed seeing this again. I thought it was one of Dennis Potters best plays, im not a great fan of his work normally, too dark and surreal for me but i really enjoyed this one. Thought the whole cast were good and they seemed to really enjoy themselves reliving their childhood!

Once again browsing youtube and it seems that someone is kindly uploading videos of all Robin's films, thought you might enjoy watching 'The Blue Remembered Hills', I found this particularly nostalgic as my grandmother was born in the Forest of Dean and my Dad was born on a farm there in 1934 and named Raymond.  Hope you enjoy ...

I was browsing Robin Ellis on Youtube and was surprised to find that some kind person has uploaded 'The Europeans' 1979, starring Robin.  He is as handsome and gorgeous as ever and still looking fabulous in those high leather boots. 
Check out his soft New England accent, gosh the man has such a wonderful voice, could listen to him forever!

Robin Ellis rocks!!!!

I was thinking strawberry cheesecake actually. Or jam and clotted cream if we want to stay in Cornwall biggrin

Anyway, I don't think Caroline's attraction to Ross is any surprise. There was a little frisson there, was there not?

Written this elsewhere but this is perhaps the  more appropriate place...
I was amused and annoyed to read  a small article in this weeks Radio Times  advertising Poldark on Yesterday channel. THe writer wondered if Robin Ellis was asked more often about his brief role in Fawlty Towers or his role as Ross Poldark. I assume this guy wasnt around in the seventies then and i dont think he has done much research on the impact of Poldark. Shame on him!

Did you know that Robin has a brother who is also an actor and one who is a producer ( in America ).

Jack Ellis is famous for being in Bad Girls and Coronation Street.

HI, Have you seen Blue Remembered Hills? A play which features many brilliant british actors including Robin, Helen Mirren, Janine Duvitski and Colin Welland. THey play children but its not weird! It was made in the seventies but was based much earlier, fifties i think and it was very poignant and funny at the same time. Worth watching especially seeing Robin in shorts!

I have just finished watching Robin Ellis in "She Loves Me," a BBC TV production of the 1963 Broadway musical based on "The Shop Around the Corner." I thought he did a really good job singing and dancing. The show and his performance are adorable.

I just finished the second series of Poldark last night Marie and I think the reason those boots look so good are because those legs are so long!!!!  And in addition to that,biggrin the head on the top of the torso is very fine indeed! I am off to the library this afternoon to look for Elizabeth R. This is so much fun!! Thanks Marie!!!!

You're very welcome, CW. 

Another ting you might look for at your library is mini series called Elizabeth R.  Robin Ellis plays Essex to Glenda Jackson's Queen Elizabeth I. (Same role played by Hugh Dancy in the recent Helen Mirren series.)  I've never seen this production but I've read it's very good. 

You can look up Ellis' filmography on the Internet movie Database at this link

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0255065/

I think I read that Ellis also did a great deal of stage work, so perhaps that's why he wasn't on television as much as many of us would have liked.  smile

Now about those boots... LOL I have no idea if they really were the same ones later used in Poldark.  I just enjoy seeing Ellis wearing them as Edward when they look so much like the ones he wore as Ross in series 1 of Poldark! biggrin

Thanks Marie,
I read the books when I was a teenager and only vaguely remember my mother's infatuation with the Poldark series when it was shown in Ireland in the late 70's. I loved the books and saw the collection of series 1 and 2 at my local library. Ellis is so good in it, but I don't ever remember seeing him in anything else, which is such a pity. I wonder if he just started to refuse acting jobs because he was being typecast or something. Would have loved to have seen him play a villain, he would have been brilliant! I also loved the slide show, the costumes are fantastic. Okay, the boots, what about those boots, are they from Poldark days????

Hi CW,
I've only seen Ellis in one other production.  In 1971 he appeared as Edward Ferrars in a BBC television production of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility.  I started a thread about it earlier this year.  (I also posted a number of screencaps.)  Check it out here

I just wanted to start a thread with a mention of Robin Ellis. He did such a great job as a brooding dark, conflicted upper class gent. I wonder if he ever felt that the role eventually stereotyped him? Has anyone seen any other work done by Ellis and how was it?
