You're right, it is "Ants in Your Plants," but "Hey, Hey, in the Hayloft" is Sullivan's masterpiece.

 

And Monty Norman adapted his never-performed score to a musical production of VS (no periods) Naipaul's book, A House for Mr. Biswas, into his vastly more famous James Bond theme.

I can't believe you got that one so fast!

 

(Though I would make one quibble... it was John Barry who did the adaptation, and contributed the famous vamp. Not enough of a contribution, unfortunately for him, for him to be considered the song's composer, though--as two courts have ruled. I understand Norman recently released a recording that addresses the controversy.)

After he lost his voice, Hawkins continued to work, with his voice dubbed by the British actors Charles Gray and Robert Rietty.

 

Hawkins also has the distinction of being one of only six (by my reckoning) featured actors to ever appear in three Best Picture Oscar winners.

Dear MrWriteLA. Yes, it was Jack Hawkins.

 

CineSage Jr, I'll treat your comments as a trivia question

 

'Hawkins also has the distinction of being one of only six (by my reckoning) featured actors to ever appear in three Best Picture Oscar winners'

 

Jack Hawkins - 'The Bridge on the River Kwai', 'Ben-Hur' , 'Lawrence of Arabia'.

 

I'll be back with the rest unless somebody beats me to it.

 

Regards
