The Sunday Lunchtime Drama on #TalkingPicturesTV (4-Mar)

Directed by Bernard Knowles
12:00 A PLACE OF ONE’S OWN (1945) drama
Starring #MargaretLockwood #JamesMa...son #BarbaraMullen

Henry and Emilie Smedhurst are an older couple who have been successful in business and are nearing retirement. They buy a dilapidated mansion that has been vacant for 40 years, intending to renovate. However, soon after the Smedhursts move in, they hear that the house is haunted. They dismiss the theory until their young guest, Annette Allenby, is possessed by the spirit of a murdered invalid on an eternal quest for retribution…..

An atmospheric ghost story based on the novel by Osbert Sitwell. This was the first time Margaret Lockwood used a beauty spot on her cheek in a film, something which became a trademark. According to Kinematograph Weekly the film performed well at the British box office in 1945, although the studio considered the film a failure.

James Mason readily accepted the role of the elderly Henry. He wrote in his memoirs that when he read the script, "not only did I enthuse but I even asked that I might be permitted to play the role of the elderly retiree in the story." However it seemed that his fan base wanted to see him in younger roles and the studios dismay at the box office result (dispite turning a small profit) caused him to take on some guilt; “it was not that I was incapable of turning my hand to a character part, it was just that I had amassed what I always realized was an absurd degree of popularity, and the fan population wanted me to appear only as some heroic young lady-killer; or better-still, ladybasher.”

There’s something so wonderful about watching old Margaret Lockwood films with other ML fans, at the same time; now seems so old fashioned and quaint!

Hello everyone, I wanted to give you all an update on my Margaret Lockwood archive, kindly donated by her devoted pen pals, who became her friends. A few months ago I asked if you'd be interested in reading the letters and viewing the photos that were given to me (thanks Belinda, Suzanne etc), and the response was very positive. I want you to know I have not forgotten!! Scanning each individual letter (a volume of correspondence is dated from 1948 until ML's death in 1990) wi...ll be a lengthy process. I have been commissioned to write a book on Margaret, Duchess of Argyll and my deadline is 1 June. So, if you can forgive the delay, I will be happy to press on with the ML archive over the summer.

When I have scanned everything (we all agreed producing it as a book would be best, if you wish to have a physical copy, but of course the files will be added to the albums on here) I will look into donating it to a cinema archive. I have had some interesting offers, and I must review them all. *** I will be donating the items for free, this page has never profited off of ML's legacy, despite my writing a book, which I received a tiny advance for and which I spent a few times over in paying for letters/access to material etc which were used for research ***

There are various ML pages on social media, each with great content, however this page was founded when there were no pages dedicated to ML on Facebook, and it was also founded to assist me with my research - it was for that purpose only, no more, no less. As we know, a lot of people came forward as a result, and for which I am grateful. I must mention our former co-admin Theo, who was clued up on social media/message boards and who promoted the page online.

I also hope to share some exciting ML news with you as soon as I am allowed to. Other people are working hard to ensure her legacy lives on, and I hope to announce the event in due course.

Thanks to our fab co-admin, Tania, for scanning this lovely photo of the Three Margarets, and for all the work she does!
