Battersea Society - Film Showing

It has been brought to our attention that the Society is presenting a public showing of The Happy Family (1952) on Thursday 5th October at the Battersea Power Station Village Hall. This delightful Ealing-style comedy tells the story of Mr and Mrs Lord who refuse to move out of their corner shop on the South Bank to make way for the building of the Festival Hall. If you are in London or are able to get there, this is a wonderful opportunity to see post war London and hopefully hear older residents reminisce. Full details can be found on the website:  The Village Hall is next to Battersea Power Station accessed by Chelsea Bridge. Buses 137, 452 and 44 and Battersea Park Station.  There are still some locations that need identifying!

Gordon Ostlere Dies Aged 95

Gordon Ostlere, who has died aged 95, was a real-life doctor until 1952, when under the name 0f Richard Gordon, he wrote Doctor in the House, and a film adaptation followed two years later. Dirk Bogarde, Kenneth More, Donald Sinden and Donald Houston, all at the fictional St Swithin’s hospital devoted their time to girls, booze and sport, whilst James Robertson Justice growled. With many more books and many more films Richard Gordon has certainly earned his place in cinema history.
