Fits and Starts of Restlessness

An Evening with Ron Moody

Went to see Ron Moody, who played Fagin in the musical Oliver! and reprised the role in the 1968 film, at the Cinema Museum last weekend. The event was held in the hall of the Master’s House of the former Lambeth workshouse, Elephant & Castle, which is the current home of the museum.

The evening was very interesting, if a bit chaotic but Ron (87) seemed to enjoy talking about himself! He told stories, cracked jokes, sung, quizzed the audience and even pretended to be a little hard of hearing when it suited him. He also managed to spook the audience when, listing the ‘greats’ of the studio system, he implored us to remember that ‘Charlie Chaplin was here – here in this very room!’.
