Additional Information:

Rebooted from 2007. The grabs, some at Polperro, Cornwall, grabbed and sleuthed by our very own … Simon James. Thanks Simon, glad you didn’t retire on the proceeds of the book! “At one time I did have the addresses and even the name of the cliff path which Lana Turner’s walking on. But sadly, put somewhere safe … however I’m pretty sure the street is on the east side and called The Warren. The cliff path which is a continuation of The Warren leads to a small concrete structure from where “the film and I placed our cameras” says Simon. (JT back in 2007) Names subsequently found! And SJ nows taken between 2007 and 2014.
