    Except that there were no dancers in Blimp. (as I said in the P&P email list)

      The Guardian replied saying they'd contacted Eileen's great-nephew again who said:
      Eileen appeared in the film as a nun/nurse in a bombed church - it was a non-dancing role. Her film roles varied between dancing and acting.


      The Guardian editor added
      The suggestion that Eileen's role was a dancing one was unfortunately introduced during the editing stage. That has been amended, and a footnote added to explain the change to the piece.

        She was lucky to walk out of that building hit by a bomb in March 1941. Al Bowlly wasn't so fortunate. Killed the next month in April 1941 by an airstrike in St. James. :-(
