Man About the House
(Un Uomo in Casa in Italian)
So ’70s! I’m crazy about the ’70s! And it was my first sight of London!
How much I loved those red shoes and those yellow trousers in the opening!
And I found irresistible the four boys and girls.
And I liked the older ones George and Mildred. George reminded me of one of my uncles, for some reasons…
The secondary characters, like Jerry, are not least! What  amazing cast and plot!!

Many years after, I’ve taped the entire series from TV and we watch it again and again!
Today, we are impressed on its brisk language, open about sex and gayness. Almost nobody in Italy remember the original series, they remember only the US remake! It’s a fact there isn’t a DVD of UK Man About the House here, yet, but they published US Three’s Company! 😦

Some years ago, I’ve bought the DVD of the entire series.

 Fury

 Fury, the West horse, as we call him in Italy.

With Rin Tin Tin (The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin), those two series made me dream of the Far West already. Having two older brothers, I played with them in their boys games.

That’s one reason why I find western movies fascinating. I also had a blue t-shirt with the horse I loved much. I have to find a picture in which I was wearing it.

Fan site: A Fury Scrapbook

Loving animals, I also had  a passion for movies and series dedicated to dogs and horses.
