FILM - SOUTH RIDING

ADDED 20 JULY 2006

[above] Glynis Johns, Ralph Richardson and Ann Todd - South Riding

It was interesting to read Mrs Audrey Smith’s letter in the Digest, issue 35, July 2006, and hear of her experiences appearing in the 1938 film ‘South Riding’, made by Alexander Korda for London Films.

‘South Riding’ was reviewed as "A convincing and dramatic picture of English provincial life", where a school mistress in a quiet Yorkshire Dale exposes crooked councillors and falls for the local squire (do things ever change?)

It must have been a wonderful experience for the then young Audrey Bains and I enclose photographs of some of the stars of the film in the hope that they bring back many happy memories.

Mrs Smith is quite right, South Riding was screened at the Crescent Cinema in Pontefract.
