JANUARY 14, 1941 BRIDES may have to wear silver wedding rings before the war is over. Said a jeweller: ‘We’re having to sell only nine-carat rings because just a quarter of the normal supply of gold is available. So many more people seem to get married in wartime that there may soon be a shortage of gold rings.’ JANUARY 14, 1970 THE new 007 was slapped down yesterday by his leading lady. Diana Rigg, the former ‘ man- eating’ Emma Peel of The Avengers, accused George Lazenby of being abusive, threatening and crude, and said he had made her cry while filming On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Miss Rigg (right) was replying to statements attributed to Mr Lazenby that she: ate garlic on purpose before filming love scenes; guzzled champagne in a warm bar while the camera crew waited outside in the cold; and preferred talking to the crew to talking to him.
