LAST Friday, the Mail’s Ephraim Hardcastle had an item on Joanna Lumley’s appearance in the 1971 comedy, Games That Lovers Play.
When I worked at the Odeon Clerk Street in Edinburgh, now long closed, this film formed part of one of the most outrageous double-entendre pairings of the period, as the support feature was called One On Top Of The Other.
It was a challenge getting both titles on the front- ofhouse canopy but provided a few titters (of the Frankie Howerd variety) for passers-by.
As a footnote, was there ever a longer film title to fit on a front- of- house readograph than 1967’s The Persecution And Assassination Of JeanPaul Marat As Performed By The Inmates Of The Asylum Of Charenton Under The Direction Of The Marquis De Sade? Most cinemas simply put up ‘Marat-Sade’. CHARLES PICKEN, Cramlington, Northumberland.
