  1. She was more than a “Howard’s Way” actress as reported. My favourite story is about her entrancing Aleister Crowley with her performance in the stage play of “Brighton Rock”, so much so that he wrote to her asking if he could sacrifice her at dawn at Stonehenge, but she declined on the grounds of not being an early riser!

  2. I love that story, Ian! I recall her PBoH stories with fondness too, from my misspent youth. I actually didn’t realise the writer was the same person as the actress until Johnny Mains pointed it out to me. I also saw her and her late husband on stage in a farce a long time ago – a wonderful actress.
