Richmond upon Thames


MONTHLY MEETINGS are being held on ZOOM for the meantime, and will be at the normal time of 2.30pm on the last Wednesday of each month, although it is a good idea to log on from around 2.15pm

We now have a ZOOM licence that allows 500 people to join our meetings so there is no need to make a reservation. The invitation link will be emailed to all of our members a few days before the talk.

The Last Gentleman of Film by Jane L’Epine-Smith

In 1916, aged 13, Eric L’Epine Smith ran away from home to appear in a silent film. Whilst running a theatrical agency he discovered Michael Wilding, Errol Flynn, Rex Harrison, Petula Clark, Vera Lynn and Diana Dors, etc. His daughter, Jane, takes us on a fascinating journey, giving interesting insights into the British film industry of the 1930s and 1940s.
