  • Jacqueline Jones

    I watched one of the "Edgar Wallace Theatre" films the other day & Jacqueline Jones was there to provide a bit of glamour.
    She had a busy career in the 60's in numerous TV shows & films & then nothing until an appearance in "The Bill" in the late 90's.
    There is scant information about her on imdb.
    She was such a beautiful woman & I wondered if anyone new anything about her?

    For a minute I thought that this thread might be about my cousin Jacqueline Jones (sister of Carolyn Jones) but neither of them are actors
    It's just a coincidence of names

      The Jacqueline Jones that was in an episode of the Bill in the late 90s is not the glamour girl from the 1960s

        wadsy, she led a very colourful life while an actress and afterwards. Went to prison, I think for soliciting, met up with Myra Hindley and wrote a book about her memories of the famous murderess called The Devil and Miss Jones. Janie Jones, as she called herself latterly, was a pretty strange woman if the book is to be believed.
        Are you sure Janie Jones and Jacqueline Jones are the same person Cully.The info on line says she was a singer no mention of being called Jacqueline or working as an actresss

            I agree with you, George. Jacqueline Jones continued to work under that name as a cabaret artiste until the mid 1970s. Here she is pictured with Cliff Richard in 1975:

            In 1975, Janie Jones was in prison!

              I have been looking at my paperback copy of the book and I fear that I have been labouring under a misapprehension. Janie Jones is clearly not the actress, Jacqueline Jones, and I don't know why I thought she was. Perhaps, I thought there was a physical likeness or picked up a fag end from somewhere when the book came out because of Janie's tenuous connection with showbiz. I don't know but I can only apologize to the Forum and I have deleted the post.
              Apologies again.
