A Bit of Bart

Well, well. There can't be many of these floating around. Unity Theatre, for heaven's sake. And Li Bart not only in an early songwriting assignment, but also playing an Ugly Sister!

I see folk have been writing Li's life story. So I guess pieces like this one, and his first book musical, Wally Pone, also produced at Unity, have been documented fully ...

PS a few months later scrabbling through an old box, prior to fire .. I found some more bits of Bart ...

mixed with Tommy Steele, Dora Bryan, [Sir] Ronnie Millar, [Lady] Bertice Reading ... documents, contracts for films and musical, etc from the 1950s to the 1980s ... yes, bits from the files of our old firm, which I didn't leave behind to find their way into some auction house in Margate, the fate which befel poor Harold's archives, but squirreled away ...   why?

Does anybody care?
