Realized that Manning Redwood played both J. Washburn Stoker in series 2 of 'Jeeves and Wooster' and Janet's father in Richard O'Brien's 1982 musical 'Shock Treatment.'

This was the result.

I made this video a while ago only just remembered to post it here! Song is You're the Top sung by Ben Barnes. Another fun fact about this song is it is originally from the musical 'Anything Goes' in which PG Wodehouse is credited for writing some lyrics...

After all these years I still adore J&W and the fan community around it ^^ Pardon me while I dump a whole bunch of silly fanworks. These are already posted elsewhere, but meh, I'm a comment whore. Hope this isn't too heavy a post.

First some silly fanart:

no title

Next a silly music parody of 'Black Butler'/'Kuroshitsuji' (I've seen it mentioned here a few times and I'm sure the parallels have escaped no-one):

And finally a silly fanfiction with heavy handed adulation of Oscar. The LJ cut seems to not want to co-operate with me so I'll just post the DA link instead of dragging the whole thing here:

It doesn't get much better than this: Bertie singing Forty-Seven Ginger-Headed Sailors with Weasley footage!

Found a trailer from the new Jeeves & Wooster play. Has anyone seen it yet? Thoughts?

Between the Faulks book and this play, it's certainly turning out to be the Fall of Jeeves. Take that how you will.

What ho!

Thought you all might appreciate this: Mental Floss recently featured a color film of London in 1926. "In 1926, British-born filmmaker Claude Friese-Greene filmed the streets of London in breathtaking color...Film history heralds the arrival of color film in the 1930s, but this footage moves that back to the '20s." You can watch the video (it's about 6 min. long) and read the article here: http://mentalfloss.com/article/50636/drive-around-london-1926

I haven't gotten very far into it, but it's already fascinating, and I thought you all might enjoy it. It has footage of Wodehouse himself, plus interviews with all kinds of interesting people.

By throwing songs to random clips I accidently became inspired and made another video. The song's a mashup of a couple different songs so this video is both a bit sad and happy.

Hello! I'm new to this fandom. I've watched the series a couple of times and I'm currently reading the books out loud to my sister. I've never really been able to finish writing a fanfiction, so I only have scraps of different Jeeves and Wooster fanfiction. I can make music videos however.

I imagine a lot of you probably know about this already, but a few years ago a Wodehouse scholar named Norman Murphy came out with the theory that Bertie Wooster was modeled on an actor/singer/producer/playwright/songwriter/all-around-talented guy named George Grossmith Jr. Grossmith played a lot of "dudes" and "mashers" on the musical comedy stage in the 1910s, and this was certainly the kind of character that Bertie was based on in his earliest form.

I muuuurdered her one morning, it was very kindly meant . . . )

I happened upon Grossmith while I was looking around for other possible Bertie Wooster inspirations. It seems that the name Bertie was already associated with dapper, upper-class gents well before Bertie Wooster was born, and I'm sure that Wodehouse was influenced, directly or otherwise, by earlier uses of the name.

I'm Burlington Bertie, I rise at 10:30 . . . )

Dear Indeedsir fellows, with the Christmas time coming I decided it would be nice to create something with a high squee-factor, as this is obviously what we all want at this time of the year.

More silly talking here )

Hope this is not too off-topic, but I just had to share it.

P. G. Wodehouse had a gift for writing lyrics, and -- along with Jerome Kern and Guy Bolton -- he helped create the modern American musical. I just found this absolutely heartbreaking performance of his song "Bill", from the 1936 version of Show Boat. The singer is Helen Morgan. I just can't stop listening to it. (PS - Notice the description of her hypothetical ideal man in the introductory verse!)
I don't know . . . he's just my Bill. )
ETA: Okay, I'm going to try this one more time. *shakes fist and LiveJournal* While I'm on the subject of Wodehousian music, I wanted to share this as well. I recently found footage of tenor Frank Titterton singing "The Yeoman's Wedding Song", a song that Bertie mentions several times in the books. This was apparently something that Bertie had to sing a number of times at school events/village concerts as a youth, and he claims in at least one story that he pulled it off pretty well. Having heard the song . . . that's pretty impressive. I wonder if this is something Wodehouse had to perform at some point when he was a young man.

ETA 2: My attempt to embed that didn't work, so here's the link.

By the way, the British Pathe website is well worth exploring. There's all kinds of rare and fascinating footage there, a lot of it from the general period of the Jeeves and Wooster stories.

While watching Blackadder over the weekend, I began to wonder- what would have happened if Rowan Atkinson had been asked to play Jeeves instead of Stephen Fry. I mean, Laurie's character is much the same (yet, dare I say it- smarter? in Plum's version) and both Blackadder and Jeeves share the similarities of serving the Prince/Wooster (henceforth shortened to Prince Wooster), rescuing him from the soup, being the cleverest one in the room, coming out ahead in every situation, and being darker to Prince Wooster's light.
Now, the characters are similar, but obviously different, so if Atkinson had gotten the role he'd be playing it slightly differently than he would his Blackadder role.

But it still stands Jeeves would probably sound much more blackadderish/malicious if he had gotten the role. How much do you think that would impact the message and interpretation of Plum's stories? And as a theoretical, which would you prefer/ think is more true to the stories?

For reference, here's a bit of Blackadder:
