Pleased to hear from you again. Weirdly enough, a
free to air TV station in Australia often shows old
British films.I am pretty sure "An Alligator Named
Daisy" was on a couple of weeks ago. Thank you
again for your kind offer.
Hi JayneMonroe, Yes I have seen a few of her earlier films -
"Good Time Girl" - she played the young girl who was told
the story of Jean Kent as a warning!! "A Boy, A Girl and a
Bike" has been on TV in the wee small hours, I've got a
feeling that Diana played a minor role of a local bad girl - it
was a film about cycling clubs. "Penny and the Pownall Case"
again is on TV late at night - I can't remember her in it but it
was a spy spoof. The last time I saw DD was a few months ago
on a particularly gruesome Alfred Hitchcock Presents called
"The Socereors Apprentice" - set in a seedy carnival.
I didn't wish to offend you with my comment about Diana
Dors. I thought she was very beautiful when she was young
and a very positive thing about her, I think, was her very
"down to earth" ness - she didn't seem to have any snobbery
about her - some of her comments that I have read I have
really laughed at.

The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]
To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
