Terry Dene at the Talking Pictures Film Festival
On Sunday, Talking Pictures & Renown held their sixth film festival, this time in Stockport at the historic art deco Plaza Cinema.
Special guests on the day included Stephanie Beacham, who was interviewed by “Scars of Dracula” actress and “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” Bond girl Jenny Hanley, as well as Rita Tushingham, and Ray Brooks, to name a few.
The original British rock’n’roll star of the 1958 film “The Golden Disc” Terry Dene was interviewed and also performed.
Regarded at the time to be Britain’s answer to Elvis, Terry performed in Soho’s 2 i’s Coffee Bar, the famous ground-breaking venue for new skiffle & rock musicians, where Adam Faith, Tommy Steele, & Cliff Richard would also appear.
Following chart success with a series of hits, Terry starred in the 1958 film “The Golden Disc” (released as The Inbetween Age in America).
Still very much active and performing, it’s a thrill to know that Terry has the Art & Hue pop art print of himself, presented at the Talking Pictures Film Festival.
Thanks to Renown & Talking Pictures for this great photo of Terry with his Art & Hue pop art print!
