Spacey Bruce Lacey RIP

Sad to hear that Bruce Lacey has passed onto yet another adventure – he really was an inspiration in his naughty ways and unwillingness to conform or compromise. The first obit I have come across is here. I kind of prefer this piece about him from a few years ago by Dale Shaw, which is here.

This is a great 15 minute film by Ken Russell, made for Monitor on the BBC in the 60s. It is so much fun, even if Bruce was still complaining about it when we were making our film about him, the Bruce Lacey Experience.

Bruce chatting after a screening of the film at the BFI. I think you get a pretty good idea of his spirited nature there.
