We had a lovely time for our Misty Moon online event with actress Judy Matheson on Saturday 3rd October 🌙⭐️✨🎭
Fans tuned in from all over, including America and New Zealand to hear tales of Judy’s Hammer Glamour days on Hammer House of Horror, with popular films Lust for a Vampire and the opening scenes of Twins of Evil being a firm favourite.
Questions came flying in from fans in the audience, which Judy answered directly and we are were treated to rarely seen clips put together by our tech man Martin Rudman, from tv shows such as Z Cars and Citizen Smith. Judy chatted about her days working on Crossroads, Blake 7, The Sweeney, The Professionals and an appearance in Coronation Street. Judy was also in The Flesh and Blood Show, Confessions of a Window Cleaner and The Exquisite Cadaver, the Spanish psychological art house thriller, with the actress Capucine. There was a treat for the audience in the form of a rare clip of The Emergence of Anthony Purdy, Esq. Farmer’s Labourer, from 1970, directed by Patrick Dromgoole and starring Freddie Jones, which Judy thoroughly enjoyed working on.
Judy also thrilled the audience with tales of working on her first film, The Chairman, with Gregory Peck, a revealing story of Stanley Kubrick and touring in the theatre with actors such as Yootha Joyce, Richard O’Sullivan and Sally Thomsett.
Feedback for the evening was fantastic and it was lovely Judy got to speak personally to fans and Twitter followers in the audience who she hadn’t met up with before 🌙⭐️✨🎥🎬
Judy will be joining us for our Misty Moon International Film Festival, as one of our judges on Saturday 24th October at 7pm 🎬🎭🎥🌙✨
