Any enemy of Stanley Kubrick is a friend of ours. Any former star of Moon Zero Two, Vampire Circus and Quo Vadis can come round to tea any time they like. And if they’ve appeared in both Devil Girl From mars and as drug addict mum Mary Amberley in Eyeless in Gaza well, the key’s under the flowerpot and the sherry’s in the fourth drawer down. We rather like Adrienne Corri.
FINEST HOUR: Aside from telling Sappy Stanley to stick his 57th take up his arse, her vampish wife of Peter Arne in ribald swashbuckler The Hellfire Club was definitely one for the sideboard.
