I watched an episode of Sam
earlier, United We Stand
. Not my kind of thing (unlike the song) but it did have early subject Stanley
Dawson - in yet another Unnoticed role!
It shouldn't take long to provide a screencap to help (re)establish him in our memories.
Imogen is in the middle. Like Catherne Deneuve (left), she's a Manicurist at the beauty salon run by Valerie Taylor (right):
"Mrs. Shaw Taylor wants to see you" [the Police 5
Her only line in the film. Although the IMDb filmography
for Imogen Graham has just one more credit (as a Receptionist in
a sadly-lost episode of Adam Adamant Lives!
), I suspect she made a few other film and TV appearances in the 1960s.
In this Daily Mirror
article, from 26th February 1965, Imogen is pictured with four other girls and obscure pop group The
Toggery Five (more like The Doddery
Five these days
). They include the lesser known sisters of two Sixties legends:
THE boys all dressed up in their top togs are the Toggery Fiive. But this is not so much a picture of a pop group ... more a way of showing off five pretty Mods. The girls with that you-too-can-look-glamorous-on-a-park-bench secret dated the group in London yesterday.
The line-up, from the left, is Graham Smith and actress Imogen Graham, Paul Young and top model Ingrid Heppner [not Hafner], Frank Renshane* and Chrissie Shrimpton - she's the sister of the famous "Shrimp" [model Jean Shrimpton] - Ken Mills and publicity girl Linda Churcher, and Alan Doyle with Sarah Leyton, sister of actor John Leyton,
A good time was had by all ... But the group are still calling their next record "I'd Much Rather Be with the Boys". Picture by CYRIL MAITLAND
Probably a minor highlight in Imogen's career but that's all l've found at the moment. It's difficult to see a simalarity in the two pictures but I am certain that's her in the Repulsion capture as the rest of Catherine Deneuve's colleagues (with the obvious exception of Helen Fraser) don't get to speak and are only seen in the background. A resemblance to Shirley Eaton perhaps?
I don't think I've seen the last of this actress somehow. Hopefully she'll have a credit in something that hasn't made it to her filmography or I'll recognise her in something where she wasn't. The usual plea to end this post ... Let us know you're alright, Imogen.
