Do you remember Clarence? If so you might understand why this picture reminded me of him.
Nigel Clack: I dont remember him, but I googled him and found a cross eyed lion. I was born that year so dont know if I saw the filmwink However I think I know why the pic looks familiar after seeing the cover of the filmsmile
