Freddie Hancock told this story about her late husband , comic, Tony Hancock. During the premiere of David Lean's Lawrence of Arabia, Tony became bored with watching Peter O'Toole drudging through the desert on a camel, and went out to the bar: he was a recovering alcoholic at the time, and when he returned about an hour later, he exclaimed 'I don't know, 6 glasses of orange juice, and they still haven't reached Cairo'.

I love it, kinda sums it up. As Sid James said when hearing the news of Tony Hancocks suicide in Australia, "See Naples and Die,
see Melbourne and top yourself"
