Conversation with Mum, some time in the 1980s.
The credits for St Elsewhere begin rolling, and they read, ‘and starring William Daniels as Dr. Mark Craig’. Two taller actors flank Daniels as they walk toward the camera.
I say, ‘Mum, that’s the guy who plays KITT on Knight Rider.’
She replies, ‘He’s very short, isn’t he?’
‘Of course. How do you think they fit him under the bonnet of the car?’
(At this point, I knew Daniels was dubbed in post, but I’d say my humour was pretty similar as a teenager as it is today.)
