Q&A with actress Sally Smith
91 Mins / 1964 / UK
James Robertson Justice, Leslie Phillips, Stanley Baxter and Sally Smith star in this hilarious (though somewhat loose) sequel to The Fast Lady! Featuring a remarkable array of comedy talent including Ronnie Barker, Kenneth Cope, Terry Scott and Hugh Lloyd.
Newlyweds Dexter (Baxter) and Juliet (Smith) Munro purchase a ramshackle cottage in order to escape her overbearing father, Shakespearean actor-manager Sir Beverly Grant. But Sir Beverley soon turns up on the doorstep, determined to "help"... and the incompetent builder and his skiffling workmates hired by his son-in-law quickly earn the full force of his temper!
We are excited to welcome actress Sally Smith in conversation with Adrian Smith (Eastbourne Cult Film Club) to the Electric Palace for this screening and Q&A.
Sally Smith had a very successful career in the 1960s on stage and on both the big and small screens, and is perhaps best remembered now as the daughter of Herbert Lom’s psychiatrist in The Human Jungle.
