Movie Club Romp April 1973

The Rye and District Movie Society meeting at the F.E. Centre on Thursday. 15th February turned out to be one of the most hilarious events in the Club’s long history. Each member turned up in fancy dress and a script was made around the characters.

The resulting film, “Rags Army”, brought to the fore acting talent that might well have remained latent forever.

Highlight of the film was Tom Upton’s rendition of the “Ploughman’s Lament”. Other “super stars” included Mrs. Upton as a “hula girl”, Roy Parrack as a “middle-class beatnik” and Maureen Allen as a lifeguard. Co-starring were those “swinging” shopkeepers Bert Longmore and Richard Brown.
