whitehall wonder; LEGEND OF THE E-TYPE.

Byline: KEITH DRAPER

THE king of Whitehall Farces Brian Rix took delivery of a two-plus-two model in the mid-1960s when he was appearing in the Garrick Theatre production of She's Done It Again. He is pictured receiving the keys from Mike Harding, director of HW Motors in Walton-on-Thames.

Brian Rix's first Whitehall romp, Reluctant Heroes, ran for four years and made a quarter of a million pounds out of reminding ageing civilians about their rookie days. Dry Rot, the next production, ran three years, nine months on a similar theme.
