Penelope Keith stylish pop art print.
It is as Margo Leadbetter in “The Good Life” that Penelope Keith is perhaps most well-known, the role which won her a BAFTA. Her social-climbing housewife, and her haughty reactions to her self-sustainable neighbours, proved a hit with viewers.
One of the most popular shows of the 1970s, Margo’s froideur occasionally thawed to help her neighbours in time of need or enjoy a Christmas drink and a joke.
First acting alongside Peter Bowles in Emergency Ward 10, it was their relationship in “To The Manor Born” that captivated the nation. As Audrey fforbes-Hamilton, the ex-lady of the manor relegated to the gatekeeper’s lodge, viewers willed her character to marry Richard DeVere.
Made a Dame in 2014, in recent years Penelope Keith has been taking viewers by the hand through Britain’s picturesque villages in the television series “Penelope Keith’s Hidden Villages”.
Penelope Keith appeared, in kind, in three episodes of The Avengers. She had an uncredited role in “The Murder Market” as a bride, a credited role in “Something Nasty in the Nursery” yet she didn’t actually appear in the episode, and, finally, as Audrey Long in “Take Me to Your Leader”.
Art & Hue had the pleasure to delve into the archives of The Avengers to create this stylish pop art print of Penelope Keith, available in three sizes and 18 colours.
If you want to relive the series, or discover it anew, the complete collection is available as a DVD box set or you can find the Emma Peel & Tara King episodes on Blu-ray as well as watch Series 4, Series 5, and Series 6 online at iTunes.
