An enchanted evening with
 
VERA DAY
British star Vera Day looks back at her career with Professor Steve Chibnall,
from first major role in Carol Reed’s A Kid for Two Farthings
(1955),
 alongside Celia Johnson and Diana Dors, to a memorable speech on the
rules of poker in Guy Ritchie’s Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998).
In between she starred in cult horror  Hammer classics including Quatermass 2
and 
The Woman-Eater, while in the 1959 comedy Too Many Crooks she’s the
moll in a gang of thieves led by George Cole and Sid James. Once hailed as
the "British Monroe," she acted with Marilyn in The Prince and the Showgirl.

Vera Day
Vera Day knows horror when she sees it. In more than sixty years of movie acting she
has been strangled by Boris Karloff, infected by the alien contagion of Quatermass II and involved in the writhing pseudopodia of The Woman-Eater (tagline: “SEE THE WOMAN EATER ENSNARE THE BEAUTIES OF TWO CONTINENTS!”) . She survived all these terrifying experiences to give a grandstanding speech on the rules of poker in Guy
 Ritchie’s gangster film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. It’s one of the most memorable moments in the picture, and she did it in one take. 

E
very girl was a glamour girl in those days, whether she was blonde, brunette or redhead,” she reflects. “It was obligatory to have the 37-22-24.” She traces the
hour-glass shape in the air. I suspect the same calculations were made by Jack Hylton,
the band-leader and impresario who plucked her from a hairdressing salon and put her
 into a show at the London Hippodrome – and by the movie director Val Guest, who
first put her on the big screen in Dance Little Lady (1954). She soon became one of British cinema’s most prolific showbiz blondes. 
A
t the 1955 Royal Variety Show she shared the bill with Morecambe and Wise, Gracie Fields and Alma Cogan. She spent a season crooning for the diners at the Edmundo Ros supper club on Regent Street,  and much longer performing live TV dramas and comedies. (“By raising an eyebrow,” said The Times of Vera’s turn in the title role of The Red-Headed Blonde, “she can put down an opponent as if with a feather dipped in acid.”) The film work also came briskly. In Too Many Crooks (1959) she’s the moll in a gang
of thieves led by George Cole and Sid James,  in one brilliant scene, she stuffs fistfuls of stolen banknotes down the front of her dress, as a distracted Terry-Thomas attempts
to yank them out again.

In Fun at St Fanny’s (1956), she is a conniving actress who infiltrates a private school attended by a very little Ronnie Corbett and the agreeably horse-faced comic Cardew Robinson. In A Kid for Two Farthings (1955), Carol Reed’s strange symbolist drama
set among the stalls and shops of Fashion Street, she fights Diana Dors for the attentions
of an East End bodybuilder. Reed, Vera recalls, "would instruct actors by performing the lines himself. It was strange, watching him being me, and then Primo Carnera,
this huge Italian wrestler.”

QUARTERMASS 2
Vera Day as the "topless bartender"
As was commonplace in the 1950s, Hammer Studios  filmed a racier “Continental" version. 
Nigel Kneale objected that it was entirely out of place,  not to mention far too colorful to have a topless waitress in a village pub. Hammer studios head James Carreras treated Kneale's objection seriously, sending the writer an explanatory telegram: “Rest assured there will be no trace of colour whatsoever in the nude scenes, which will be handled with the utmost taste.” Mr. Carreras then told Val Guest to carry on exactly as planned. 
Focal point in the publicity was 22-year-old pin-up Vera Day. Her sensational topless scene was reportedly a high point in the sole public screening in Berlin, on April 1, 1957. “One might not think twice about a topless barmaid today,” mused Mr. Guest. “Maybe we started a trend. I never understood his problems with that. It's not as if we painted her blue and green. Her color was quite natural. Rather like Forrest Tucker, really."
Stateside, distributor United Artists killed the Vera Day campaign, dooming her nude scene to film-vault obscurity. Though she would go on to classics such as Them Nice Americans and Watch It, Sailor, she never again played another topless barmaid in a color science fiction film. Read entire story here

By Adrian Smith: An impressive array of stars and an eclectic lineup of Hammer
 films at the Phoenix Square cinema in Leicester marked the launch of a brand new innovative collaboration between Hammer and the De Montfort University. 
Their Cinema and Television History (CATH) Research Centre have become 
custodians of the Hammer script archive, meaning they will curate and catalogue
 the collection and make them available for research purposes. They have also
 received a collection of Jimmy Sangster items donated by his widow Mary Peach, 
including written materials and photographs covering not only his time with 
Hammer but as a successful independent writer and director.
