Ruggles of Red Gap

Member Mike Newman reports that the per our discussion at the July meeting of The Den(ver) of the Secret Nine, that TCM will be showing Ruggles of Red Gap at 6 p.m. MDT on Sunday, Aug. 4.

The movie, starring Charles Laughton, is based on Harry Leon Wilson’s 1915 novel and features an English butler who ends up in Red Gap, Wash. I believe we were discussing whether Ruggles had any influence of the creation of Jeeves.

You can buy the movie at YouTube for $2.99. Here’s the trailer:
