    One of my my all-time favourite disturbing films from my youth.

    It was movies like The Wicker Man and Get Carter that made young me first start to realise what a f****d up world I had been born into.

    “One of my my all-time favourite disturbing films from my youth”.

    —————————–

    I bet you rewound the bit with Brit Ekland more than a few times, Ian.

    Funnily enough, it was one of my favourites too.

    That would have been a losing bet, GT.

    She never did it for me.

    Various young women in various Hammer House Of Horror movies around the same time did, though – Mary and Madeleine Collinson in Twins Of Evil and Deliah Lindsay in Scars Of Dracula to name but three.

    Tremendous film, The Wicker Man, and a great performance from Hammer regular Christopher Lee, given a rare opportunity at the time to show there was a lot more to him as an actor than simply playing endless successions of Vampires.

    Although I loved The Wicker Man, I wasn’t generally a fan of Hammer House. For me Horror had to be – to a certain degree – believable… eg The Omen trilogy.

    That’s brilliant, HDLG, if I am ever up that way, I will be sure to do the same.

    Fenella Fielding in Carry On Screaming – my first, my last, my everything :yes:

    When I first watched “Carry On Screaming” as a child, I thought it was absolutely terrifying!

    One of the best entries in the series, with one of Kenneth Williams’s finest moments. His account in his diary of the filming is often very funny.

    Fenella Fielding was great in it but I must admit I always rather liked Angela Douglas. She did not appear in many of the series but was in two of the best: Screaming and (best of all) Up The Khyber.

    I first remember watching Carry On Screaming at the age of nine in 1972 at my family’s then home in Sheffield.

    I thought it was amazing and that Fenella Fielding was both impossibly and exquisitely beautiful.

    I can probably date my later love of goth women in London in the 80s from that point.

    I’m happy with Rohaan if my love of racing could be typified by one horse it is this one.

    Good news. I’ve passed my idea on to fellow gardeners and one lady has asked for seven bags of “Dobbins doings” at £5 a bag. She suggested the price.
    Furthermore I’ve also realised that the floral industry is broken and needs shaking up. The people at the food bank have started collecting free seed packets from their magazines. I often pick a flower or two and hand a bunch to the people in the kitchen. I’m going to grow flowers and make ten cut flower bouquets a month for the hospice where my Dad went for a few days. They have a shop in the high Street clothes and what-like. They don’t know it yet but the bouquets will cost five pounds and the only way to pay for them will be by card straight to the hospice. Gift aided too.
    I also haven’t told the stable yet but next time I visit……
    I made my first bouquet yesterday Heebes sedum geranium and two flowers I didn’t know the wrapping paper was yesterday’s racing post. When I’ve cracked the technology I’ll post a picture of it. ironically it showed the price of course on the sheet £4:50 even more irony in big headlines it said pricewise melbourne cup special.

    Another week on and things are blooming. I’ve cut some lovely Dhalias and cosmos and plonked them in cold water overnight on Sunday. Popped them into the local charity shop ready for the florist to transform them into a bouquet but in my haste I’ve left them in a really nice glass vase along with all the other vases I’ve meant to take home. Passed the shop last night and the vases are all in the shop window. I’m on death row. I’ll get there early and wouldn’t be surprised to see the bargain hunters camped out overnight after my vase. It’s not Claris cliff but it’s probably a similar price!!!
    Its like one of those keeping up appearances episodes or last of the summer wine laced with one foot in the grave with a splash of Endeavour and heartbeat. Compo has to save the day and retrieve Hyacinth bucket’s ornate Ming dynasty vase from the charity shop that Arkwright has just purchased for Gladys Awldroyd. Morse has got there just in time having solved the crossword and catches the vase before it hits the floor and hands it to Compo and I snatch it out of his mucky paws and gift aids a tenner to the open mouthed lady behind the till.
    I probably will have my wellington boots on and all too.
