Thunderbirds Enjoy Sherry
Does anyone remember the cult 1960s TV series Thunderbirds? (Los Guardianes del Espacio in Spanish). They were heroic members of International Rescue catching crooks by land, sea air or space. The original was made by Gerry Anderson and his wife Sylvia using sophisticated puppets.
They went on to make spin-off series Stingray, Supercar, Fireball XL5 and Joe 90. Now the original series has been revived using digital animation. How appropriate then, that José Luís Jiménez of the Cine Club de Jerez should come across a clip of Lady Penelope being served a glass of Sherry by her butler Parker. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kz_KlZKnmCs
