      How is (or was) Fenella "portraying an wholesome image"?
      She was always a delightfully naughty lady

      With that voice it would be hard to be anything else

        The 'Confessions' and 'Adventures' movies, and many others, were populated with 'proper' actors slumming in soft porn, many were, or have gone on to become, household names. It reflects the state of the industry at the time and the shifts in public taste.

        Was John Le Mesurier or Lynda Bellingham cheating the public?

          Maybe 'populated with 'proper' actors slumming in soft porn' but I am not talking 'soft porn'

          The thing with those two actors is we KNEW there were in those type of movies because somewhere on the cast/credits they names were on it whereas Fenella was not on the list so some would not know it was her.


          How many on here knew she did voice overs/dubbing for adult films?

            Can you name some of the titles that you claim that she dubbed?

              Not me, but I can't say I'm bothered.

              Yes please. You're being rather coy about this.

                Dubbing a voice in a porn movie is hardly the same as performing in one. If she wasn't credited and it is just her voice, how do you know it's her?

                Considering the nature of hard core adult movies I am astonished a producer would go to the bother of dubbing a voice.

                  How many care? its maybe not what she wants to be known for but it hardly detracts from her body of work

                      Not being coy at all,Just was not sure to put the title on here.

                      If you knew anything about films and the makings of them,dubbing films is very important part of the film process wether it be mainstream or otherwise .Many Actors have their voices redubbed by sometone else, as it can save a lot of money by not having them brought back to do their voices again if they are extremely busy or their voice is not the one that want.

                          come on, don't be shy

                          Oh! Nurse is one of them.
                          Do you mean Oh, Nurse! (1972)

                          That's listed on the IMDb as just a comedy, not even as a sex-comedy

                          Rarely in the naughtier films. They don't usually bother.

                          So did she have to dub all the groans & orgasms?

                            I think he's referring to "Oh, Nurse!" a hardcore pron loop made in the early 70s starring Mary Millington (it's not listed on IMDb). This was one of a number of short hardcore loops Mary made in Hamburg around 1971-2. There isn't any evidence at all that Fenella Fielding did voice dubbing. Even if she did I wouldn't care, you judge an artist by the (excuse pun) body of their work, and Fenella's was actually theatrical revues & comedies. Also as Marcus points out, she hardly went around moral pontificating. Quite the reverse. It's fairly obvious from her self-created public persona that she liked to be seen as a slightly camp & rather 'naughty' female ( mean, take that voice for a start!).

                          It's nice to remember her for the pleasure she gave the viewing audience.

                          Rest in Peace Fenella.

                            I agree. What on Earth is Metro1962 talking about? I agree with Crook 100% for once. It wasn’t if Fenella waltzed about spouting how moral she was. She was a jobbing actress who took what jobs she could. She didn’t ‘do porn’ or even by the sounds of things do soft porn. If she did do some dubbing on a ropey sex comedy so what. There was no need to sully her good name. Get off your high horse and gallop off to some Christian site in which you can wallow in your self righteousness.

                              Can't quite see the problem. Acting as a body double would be an entirely different matter!
