#Oscars Week #London Movie Quiz on #Twitter – Answer to Question 1

Here was yesterday's Oscar-themed London Movie Quiz question on Twitter…

A whopping 71% of you voted for Michael Caine. And the answer was…

Stanley Holloway!

It was a bit of trick question – Caine's father worked at Billingsgate, Holloway worked there as a clerk when a young man.

Here's the trailer for My Fair Lady, for which Holloway was nominated as Best Supporting Actor in 1964. Coincidentally, he was up against two other London born actors in the same category – John Gielgud (for his part in Becket) and Peter Ustinov (who won the award for his performance in Topkapi).

A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at
