"No one touches Mrs Lopsided...!" (Noooooooooo!)
Found out not too long ago from a little article in a newspaper or something (could have been a scrap of paper I saw on the floor at a bus station), that Tommy Cooper was considered for the role as One-Round. Personally I couldn't imagine anything worse. Tommy Cooper was great and everything, but not as the dim-witted boxer - he might have done well in a guest role, though, similar to Frankie Howerd's part as the barrow boy.
Danny Green was just so brilliant, I couldn't imagine anyone else as One-Round. Just my opinion!
