Yvonne’s dead! Say it ain’t so!

London will never swing quite the same way again

She is – or was. See how we can’t get used to it? – the lead in one of our favouritest film experiences of all time. She is – was – Lynn Redgrave. The film is – was, no still is – Smashing Time, the tale of two northern trouts who come to Swinging London to become Twiggy and Lulu.

She was the most talented of the Redgraves (OK, that’s not hard, we know) and it was the cancer that got her.

To mark the sad occasion, jump the jump to see Yvonne from Smashing Time recording her first hit record (a bit like Kylie in the studio only Yvonne has much more input), which has perhaps the greatest lyrics to a pop song of all time *dabs eye, puts on two pairs of false eyelashes as a final tribute*…

  1. Friendly – Unspoilt and a virgin. Three things that could never be said of Miley Cyrus. Sonia becomes Pet Clark! Smashing BABY!! Then some great Helen Shapiro!

  2. That film is dynamic! Ahead of its time and probably funnier now than it was then … I recommend it. I have it on DVD (from Holland, I think).
