Peter and George: The Odd Couple

Peter O'Toole recalls sharing a dressing room with George Formby in the Fifties:
'He kept two ukuleles, tuned to different keys, and I asked him if one was a spare. 'No,' said Formby, 'I find it very difficult to change key, so I don't bother. I just pick up another ukulele.' The phrase became a favourite -- whenever anything would go wrong, I'd say: 'Pick up another ukulele!'.'
