Danny was such a loss to entertainment passing on at a young age. Went to photograph his house some months ago which was memorable. During the early 70's I was performing with one of the 50's cast and lots of stories were told of Danny's antics. The old programme is a nice memory also from 1953 prior to the movie.

"Alf Hall."
"Quick, bring him a chair."
Lovely memories of the stage show in 1953 at Blackpool. Danny Ross brought the house down.

Highly recommend investing in That's my Boy DVD Jimmy Clitheroe and Danny Ross lost episode is included as well. The BSA Bantam episode is hilarious. £3 on the bay.

Love match is listed in the 70's film lists also in the Derann 1979 hire catalogue but I couldn't find its distributor. Probably PM or Powell films at a guess.
Watch out for a young Shirly Eaton in it.

Cheers guys. I was thinking it was either Powell Films or PM Films too. I have been looking through some back issues of Movie Maker magazines but no luck so far in confirming this. [Smile]
