Hayley Mills: born 1946. The middle child of actor John Mills and writer Mary Hayley Bell, blonde, blue-eyed Hayley Mills became the epitome of English wholesomeness in the early 1960s in a series of Disney films. She first came to attention with a highly-praised turn as a pre-teen murder witness in “Tiger Bay” (1959), opposite her father. Based on this strong debut, Walt Disney signed Mills to a five-year contract, putting her in a series of sweet, ingratiating innocents ranging from “Pollyanna” (1960), for which she earned a special juvenile Academy Award, to a dual role of twins trying to reunite their divorced parents in “The Parent Trap” (1961) and the musical “Summer Magic” (1963 – a remake of Mother Carey’s Chickens, filmed by RKO in 1938). She also co-starred as one of three children who discover an escaped convict and believe he is Jesus Christ in Bryan Forbes’ “Whistle Down the Wind” (1961), adapted from a novel by her mother. After playing a perturbing student at a convent school who reforms in “The Trouble With Angels” (1966), directed by Ida Lupino, Mills shocked the Establishment and shed her pure image with a celebrated nude scene in “The Family Way” (also 1966).

Luan Peters is ‘Go Girl’ in a bikini

In 1946, British on January 2, 2017 at 2:07 am

Luan Peters (born 1946) promoting “Go Girl” (unreleased TV pilot, produced 1972). Another chapter in the career of the incredible Kenneth F. Rowles of ‘Take an Easy Ride‘. Rowles devised and produced this TV series back in 1970. For reasons unknown Go Girl was never broadcast. Go Girl uses much of the same crew as Rowles’ Venom, an offbeat horror film about a forest dwelling nymphet with a spider fixation. While Venom took its British crew to Bavaria, Go Girl was shot in Spain. Left gathering dust for well over a decade the 28 minute pilot episode eventually resurfaced on a value for money video double-bill with Take an Easy Ride in the early Eighties, erroneously billed as ‘Give Me a Ring Sometime’ which is actually just the pilot episode title.
