A doppelganger in my favourite Peter Greenaway movie

As I remember it, the first dud husband to be drowned in the movie Drowning by Numbers is a philandering drunk who is a dead-ringer for Thurston Howell III in Gilligan’s Island. When I first viewed this movie in some little cinema in Cairns during a holiday, this resemblance to a character in a kid’s TV comedy series which every kid of my generation saw umpteen times over must have been quite a strange thing to behold. Perhaps that’s why this movie had such an instant appeal. Drowning by Numbers is scheduled for broadcast on WTV (West Television channel 44) at midnight tonight.
