Petula Clark

  1. Lana Morris, Trouble in Store, 1953.       A star (singer) at eleven, Pet fought the UK's Rank Organisation (and her father) to act her age (21) and  refused being yet another comic's innocent girlfriend (in Norman Wisdom's debut). She was suspended until  doing  much the same with The Gay Dog. Then, Rank dropped her and she only had her father to fight. 
  2. Suzanna Leigh, Paradise, Hawaiian Style, 1966.     Wisely ran from such  Elvis candy. As happened to many other girls, Suzanna's career went South after working with Presley. 
  3. Patty Duke, The Valley of the Dolls, 1967.
  4. Nancy Sinatra,  Speedway, 1968.      Pet  would have  been a more believable IRS agent. Fortunately for her, Elvis decided to repay Old Blue Eyes for his Welcome Home TV show.  Sure enough,  Nancy's fame  went South, too. 
  5. Jacqueline Bisset, Airport, 1969.       Dean Martin did his best to win Clark as his girl. Bisset, however, was the flavour of the hour. This was her fifth LA film in succession since Frank Sinatra OKed her to replace his wife, Mia Farrow, in The Detective in 1967.
  6. Carol Lynley, The Poseidon Adventure, 1972.      A case of  hey, Nonnie...  No!   “At midnight on New Year's Eve, the S.S. Poseidon, en route from New York to Athens, met with disaster…” The UK singer survived by passing Nonnie Parry to Lynley - who did not get on with her screen lover, Red Buttons, at all. Being, poor kid, 23 years younger!
