FILM - SOUTH RIDING
ADDED 20 JULY 2006
[above] Glynis Johns, Ralph Richardson and Ann Todd - South Riding
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.
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?)
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.
Smith is quite right, South Riding was screened at the Crescent Cinema in
20 July 2006
