Rita Tushingham

  1. Claire Bloom, The Spy Who Came In From The Cold, 1964.       Although almost as new to movies as he was to writing books, John le Carré said the UK new-waver find from The Taste of Honey was the perfect Liz Gold. “A bit kooky, someone who could play working class, a bit solitary... a natural recruit for the Communist party. ” Hollywood preferred Bloom. Her role became Nan Perry opposite Richard Burton. Le Carré felt she she was too beautiful, too classy, but he had to admit: “she provided the female-focus the story needed... she knew she wasn't going to be acted off the screen” by Burton, an ex-lover, who got her the part even though she was too old at 34 for the teenage rôle. (Rita was 22).
  2. Richard, Lorna Doone, TV, 1976.   Six years earlier, Rita and director Desmond Davis announced their version of the  RD Blackmore classic. Nothing happened and the next production (the seventh of eleven since 1920) came fderoim the BBC. Where else? (Rita was now 36)
