The voice of Paul in Yellow Submarine dies

Postby oobujoobu1971 » Sat Jul 28, 2012 1:39 pm

Geoffrey Hughes, who played the voice of Paul in the Yellow Submarine film, has passed away today :cry:

Anyone know what other 11 (yes, eleven) parts he played in that film?


Also a popular actor here in the UK as "Eddie Yeates" for several years in Coronation St. in the 70s and 80s, as well as various comedy roles.

I always wished that the Beatles had done their own voices for Yellow Submarine. When I first watched the movie on TV as a child, I thought it was really them. I felt deceived when I found out it wasn't them.

Doesn't Keeping Up Appearances get endless repeats on US tv?

I knew it wasn't Paul in "Yellow Submarine" but I didn't know who it was.

Yes Geoffery Hughes was Onslow on "Keeping Up Appearances". Funny dude.

Didn't see him on anything else though.

i know 'keeping up...' from our local PBS stations, all of whom contract individual series from distributors on an individual station-by-station basis...

and at least in my area (the mighty KPTS viewing area, that is), it does seem to have been on forever, james

and i, too, did not realize that 'inslow' was 'paul', either
