  1. I watched Roxie Hart recently and though it was great fun. Adolphe Menjou really stole it as devious lawyer Billy Flynn. Lovely cameo from Iris Adrian as ‘Two Gun Gertie’.

    • Love Iris Adrian, especially “Lady of Burlesque”, another William Wellman. I remember the first time I saw it – in the Vintage Film Club in Dumbarton.

  2. The Vintage film club! That was where I met you when I was 16. We have been friends now for 50 years. It just doesn’t seem possible.

    • I do indeed remember that our friend John Oswald first introduced me to Lady of Burlesque ( or Striptease Lady as it was called then). John’s favourite was the lovely Alice Faye.
