Prison Guard – Peggy Aitchison

  • Aitchison was a familiar face on British television from around 1963 onward, as assorted landladies, neighbors, and cooks. She performed in one-shot adaptations from George Orwell, Charlotte Bronte, Henry James, and Henrik Ibsen. On the soap opera Crossroads, she played the grousing Mrs. Blundell from the first episode in 1964 through 1970. She was a regular on the sitcoms Robin’s Nest (1978-1981, as Gertrude) and Ffizz (1987-1989, with Richard Griffiths).
  • Film credits include Lola (1970, with Honor Blackman and Robert Morley), A Prayer for the Dying (1987, with Liam Neeson), and A Handful of Dust (1988, with James Wilby and Kristin Scott Thomas).

Possibly the best line in the movie… “No wonder he hasn’t come by to see me. He had to finish law school.”

(These are mostly my thoughts and observations. I have occasionally added some of Annie’s thoughts after the recording. I have done my best to attribute info where needed. Many of the more common facts about the film and The Muppets are not directly attributed to any one source. It is not my intention to claim all of the above information as my own. If you find a place that needs attribution, please contact me with the source and I will be happy to add it.)
