Give Us The Moon (Dir. Val Guest) (1944): A young man, Sascha, joins a group call 'The Elephants' whose principle is to abide by a complete disregard for work. However chaos ensues when the group decides to help run the hotel owned by Sascha's father!

Highly Dangerous (Dir.

My grandmother was in a film with her. I met 'Maggie' once at my gran's house in the seventies when I was a kid. I didn't know who she was though.

Oh, and Sharon, you'll like my other name drop: Bolan's drummer used to baby sit for me!

I do love the 70's-although I was a bit too young to appreciate it at the time and I do absolutely love a claim to fame-maybe we should start a discussion EIBuc!
Is the Bolan drummer childcare story something you learnt in retrospect or was he combining the two careers at the same time?:)
Sorry-couldn't resist it!!
Thanks for your post.

Well it was not long after he was sacked/left (he played on 3 T-Rex albums, Futuristic Dragon being his last) but he still drummed. His girlfriend at the time, Gail, was really nice, she stayed locally after they split up and by the time I was 17 she had got married and had a couple of kids so I would babysit for them for a few years. I remember she had a suitcase of things Marc had given to her and Davey (her ex - the drummer) which she'd get down from the attic every now and then - she would lend me stuff - I remember I went to a T-Rex convention thing in 1992 and I wore these Lady Dior sunglasses which Elton John had given to Marc, then Marc had given to Davey and Davey to Gail - she was really lovely but sadly died a few years ago.
