Capital Celluloid - Day 142: Monday May 23

Strip! Strip! Hooray! A Tribute to Pamela Green (28 March 1929 - 7 May 2010)
Sanctum Soho Hotel, 20 Warwick Street, W1B 5NF London, 7pm

The Society Film Club have put this evening together and here are the details they have supplied:

'Pamela Green was Britain's very own queen of curves, famed for her appearance in Michael Powell's Peeping Tom (1960), star of the epic nudist picture Naked As Nature Intended (1961) and joint founder of Kamera films and magazines. A short introductory talk by Yak El-Droubie will be followed by a selection of 8mm Striptease films and rare footage from The Naked World of Harrison Marks.

Poet and former pin-up Tiffany Anne Tondut will be reading extracts from Pamela's biography.

Programme:
Art for Art's Sake (1959) 3.32m
Cover Girl (1960) 6.49m
The Naked World of Harrison Marks (1966) 30m
Xcitement (1960) 5.47m
The Window Dresser (1961) 5.51m

The fabulous Trixie Malicious, the living embodiment of Mae West’s quip about 'a girl who lost her reputation and never missed it.' will be performing a special dance for us in honour of Soho and the striptease.'
