"(reduced to two pages - he could write only two pages on Graham Chapman???). "

I was very anger and dissapointed that the site was trimmed down so greatly.

Only if we recognised him. He usually tries to disguise himself. Not always succesful.

Besides, he has the right to defend himself. Let him explain why there's only two pages about Graham.

Another probelm with the two pages on the Chapman site is that one is just an introduction to the website. Meaning that only one page is really about Graham.

Also, here's something interesting. Here's a picture of the actor who was rumored to play Graham in the film.

And then the lynching! :) Rhys Ifans isn't a bad actor actually. Depends on whether he got the portrayal right or not. Not that it matters, with the film being lost in pre production hell and all....

Rhys Ifans did a superb Peter Cook in the film Not Only But Always.

David Sherlock once gave a box of Graham's documents to this guy as well as permission to publish it.
What yim did was appoint himself as GC archive, he actually got people as far as to donate rare recordings to him.

Then once every ten years he brings out a tiny incomplete bit. And he goes mad whenever anyone dares put anything online.

Here's a list of all the Chapman material Yoakum HAS released.

Books:
Graham Crackers: Fuzzy Memories, Silly Bits, and Outright Lies (1997)
OJRIL: The Completeley Incomplete Graham Chapman (1999)
Calcium Made Interesting (2005)

CDs:
Six Pack of Lies (1996)
Spot the Loony (2000)
Looks Like Another Brown Trouser Job (2006)

DVDs:
Looks Like a Brown Trouser Job (2005)

Where is Jim Yoakum Now?

Well I checked IMDB, and I found that Yoakum co-wrote and co-produced (and even co-wrote the score) a film called 'Twist the Cap' which is to star Charlie Murphy (Chappelle's Show, Eddie Murphy's Brother).

And yet he never released:

*"Out of the trees" by Graham Chapman and Douglas Adams (the script)

*"Jake's Journey" written and starring Graham Chapman

And doutless there is more that we don't know of in his attic.

A film about Keith Moon is in the works with Mike Myers as Moon. Maybe a Keith/Graham story will make it into that film.
