Dinner for one (Same as every year)
Although the exact history of the play doesn't seem too clear what is certain is that the rights eventually belonged to Freddy Frinton and will always be most associated with him. It was first performed on German television and is still a massive hit there every year.

I colour version was scheduled to be shot in 1968 but Frinton had a heart attack just three weeks before filming was to begin.
