          R.I.P.

          Less unexpected than usual as we know she suffered a massive stroke last week, but still sad news. The Voice of The Village is now silent.

                          Apparently in the 1970s she did some 'voice over 'dubbing (that is not on her cv ) for some adult movies shall we say

                            In the 70s a LOT of the porn films were made by moonlighting professionals who did not wish to become known for such things. These days, all the camera phones and digital processing makes it hard to appreciate just how complicated it used to be. Film cameras, lighting, sound and rented studio space... and processing the film in the labs, all necessary to create even the cheapest product. So yes, actors and crew would occasionally have work that they weren't going to include in their CV, even directors.
