Jean Cadell Pop Art
Born in Edinburgh, Jean Cadell is perhaps most associated with one of the most Scottish films ever produced, and its follow-up.
The Ealing comedy “Whisky Galore!” was an international success that spread the tale of whisky-loving islanders to cinemagoers around the world. The French title inspired the name of the first ever nightclub “Whisky-a-gogo”. Jean Cadell appeared in the film along with Basil Radford, Joan Greenwood, Gordon Jackson, Morland Graham, Duncan Macrae, & John Gregson. The follow-up, called “Rockets Galore!”, including Ronnie Corbett & John Laurie, had its world premiere at the Odeon Marble Arch on the 19th of September 1958.
Other film credits include “I Know Where I’m Going”; “Pygmalion” (which featured Patrick Macnee as an uncredited extra); “Quiet Wedding” with Margaret Lockwood & Margaret Rutherford; “The Young Mr. Pitt” with Herbert Lom; “Dear Octopus”; “Jassy” with Dennis Price; “That Dangerous Age” with Peggy Cummins; “Marry Me” with Zena Marshall; “No Place for Jennifer” with Janette Scott; “I’m a Stranger” with Fulton Mackay; the Ealing comedy “Meet Mr. Lucifer” with Stanley Holloway, Barbara Murray, Joan Sims, Irene Handl, & Ian Carmichael; “Let’s Be Happy” with Vera-Ellen, Tony Martin, Alfred Burke, & Molly Weir; “The Surgeon’s Knife” with Donald Houston & Mervyn Johns; “Serious Charge” with Cliff Richard; and “A Taste of Money” with Dick Emery.
Acting must be in the Cadell genes as two of Jean’s grandchildren, Simon & Selina, followed in her footsteps.
