Bonar Colleano: The final of Ian Dury's Reasons To Be Cheerful is the American born actor who made a number of British films in the 40s and 50s. Mostly playing Americans and generally the brash and good-looking American soldier stationed in the UK during the war and making friends (often very good friends) with lonely British women. He died in a car accident in 1958, a subsequent fund raising football match saw friends such as Sid James, James Mason, Alma Cogan and Alfie Bass help raise funds to support his son, Mark. Mark Colleano is also an actor and has appeared in episodes of Only Fools and Horses and some other stuff (I have used extensive research!). So with Ian's Reasons complete, all that's left is the video and then I start on my own reasons to be cheerful.
