12th September, 2018
British tv and cinema have lost another female icon this week, with the sad news of the death of Fenella Fielding. Her film credits were less than you might have thought, perhaps the result of what she saw as being typecast after appearances in 1960s comedies. That may be right, but if you're going to be best remembered for a Carry On classic, then Fenella's Valeria Watt in Carry On Screaming would be hard to beat. Unfortunately, as far as we know that was the only film in which her billing was high enough to warrant appearing on the main posters.
RIP Liz Fraser
7th September, 2018
British film and tv has lost one of its most familiar female faces, that of archetypal British blonde, Liz Fraser. She was never far from our screens from the early fifties onwards, but is probably best known for her appearances in some of the early Carry Ons, and then in the slightly more crude successor series, the Confessions.... films and also the Adventures.... outings. Liz was usually part way down the cast list, so posters featuring her name or image are few. But fortunately the Americans not only re-named Carry On Regardless, but they also used a great image of Liz in their One Sheet for the film.
Farewell to Burt
7th September, 2018
Burt Reynolds has died at the age of 82, not long after beginning work on what was to be his latest comeback, in the next Quentin Tarantino movie. A former American footballer, his career had its ups and downs, but at his most popular in the 70s and 80s he was frequently top of the box office. Underrated according to some, overrated according to others, his starring roles included some big titles - including Smokey and the Bandit, Boogie Nights, and Deliverance (the only of his roles for which the poster is really collectable. Followed by our favourites - the final Rat Pack movies, the Cannonball Run (and II), in which he was having a lot of fun with regular comic sidekick, Dom DeLuise, and original Rat Packers Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Frank Sinatra and Shirley MacLaine).
