Aphrodite at the water-hole

The Rebel

I wrote a big long spiel to go with this earlier but it wouldn't download for some reason so I'm not wasting my time again. This is a still from one of my favourite films "The Rebel" starring Tony Hancock. This is the bit where the nagging landlady played wonderfully by Irene Handl tries to get into Tony's garret to see what the noise was all about. He's secretly been carving a "hulking great thing" out of concrete bolted together from "bits of the town hall, the war memorial and the library steps" and he calles it "Aphrodite At the Water-hole"!
