Kate and Justice are forever linked for the reason you alluded to - two "old school" actresses still popular enough to get their own series 30 years after their initial fame. And we musn't forget their contemporary Googie Withers, who had fantastic succes with Within These Walls (that's enough withs, I think!). This IS on DVD, as you know, so why not the others?
As enthusiastic as I am to see those series, Seven Faces of Woman and what survives of Take Three Girls are TOP PRIORITY for me, followed by Harriet's Back in Town (Pauline Yates), Helen - A Woman of Today (Alison Fiske) and, for about the 50th time, Marked (bloomin') Personal, with Heather Chasen and Stephanie Beacham. ALL 'Women's Dramas' and ALL unreleased. Coincidence? Even The Liver Birds has been ignored. What hope for Girls About Town? Actually none - or, indeed, Nun!.
Back to our subject. There are dozens of exciting stills to whet our appetites at Rex Features:
Love Story - 1963
Some amazing images there, including the Julia Foster-Rodney Bewes play I mentioned earlier. Just type in all the years from 1964 to 1973 and try your luck. You'll see most of the other years are covered (with the famous film Love Story taking up all of 1970). The majority of the pictures are in colour. This is a real feast.
Much though I've enjoyed this post - and the whole thread today (thanks to Elaine) - I am about to end on a sad note as the death of Margie Lawrence has been announced here by her husband. Marjie appeared in an episode of Love Story in 1964, entitled Beggars and Choosers.
I'm enormously relieved to discover that this also exists and there's the added delight that the equally beloved Avril Elgar was one of her co-stars. What a shame I had to find out this way. These might just be my favourite character actresses on television. Poor Marj. Have to worry about Avril now ...
