Funny that, I just wonder how many short-sighted lads stumbled about half-blind rather than risk being called 'Joe 90' by their mates back then. That was the thing with National Health specs, they looked National Health. Though apparently, the Teviots that Caine wore as Harry Palmer were NHS issue. The shades he was wearing when he waved his bird off at Turin airport in The Italian Job were bloody nice though.
Had to know a bird for ages before I'd even let them see me in 'em... missed a lot of good films at the cinemas in 1969-71 because of vanity.
My next visit to the optician will probably result in me picking up a guide dog... that said, I picked a few dogs up back in the day, anyway. (Should have had the bins on.).
Edit: Wasn't going to, but... sod it:
Yes, I do look at tad camp... wanna make something of it?
(Cuddling my old mum.)
