Now Playing Tracks

Five-year-old Jane Asher’s first acting role was the part of Nina in the film “Mandy” (also known as “Crash Of Silence”), an emotional and well-received story about a deaf-and-dumb girl.

Screen captures made by me. Please, *PLEASE*, if you want to use any, give credit to at least one of the sites tagged in the photos (Jane Asher (re)source, Jane Asher Lovers, Lovely Jane Asher or Lady Jane). At least one!

And, of course, don’t remove the tags. I’ve spend time to get the copy, taking the screen captures, editing them and tagging them. And sharing them. So, if they annoy you, go and find a copy of the film yourself, and take the screen caps yourself.

Don’t crop the pics! Don’t do any artwork with them that involves hiding or deleting/cropping the tags. If you do it… well, I have MANY films & TV shows to screen caping (? exists this word?), so maybe next time the tags will be larger… or in the middle of the pic… or over her face…


So I wanted to take some screen captures since long ago. I did ‘Alfie’ back then… taking pictures from my camera to the screen computer… they looked awful!

So now that I have a quite nice collection of Jane films & TV series (Mandy, Robin Hood -don’t know now which chapter-, The Greengage Summer, The Saint -one of the 2 chapters for the moment-, Girl in the Headlines, The Masque of the Red Death, The Deep End, The Buttercup Chain and The Stone Tape, if I don’t forget any!) I’ll re-start with the screen captures.

I’ll do it little by little and when I have time, I’ll start this weekend with Mandy anyway. I’ll tagg the pics (sorry folks!) with the taggs of this tumblr, my facebook page, my website and the Lady Jane Yahoo group, the trusted sites.

I want to do it :) it’s a very tireing (? is that the word?) thing, but I want to do it, this needs to be done anyway.

This is from July 2013. I found it today. Well, better late than never, isn’t it?

1988, January 25th - Jane Asher and Ian McKellen (first row), Melvyn Bragg, Michael Cashman, Eleanor Bron, Terry Jones, Sheila Hancock, Lenny Henry and others outside The Playhouse to fight Section 28, the UK law prohibiting “promotion of homosexuality” by local authorities.

The prohibition was intended to extend to gay-themed books, films, and artwork in libraries and schools.   A group of actors, gay and straight, brought attention to  the fact that the proposed bill (eventually passed into law) was an attack on art and literature as well as on homosexuals.

On 5 June 1988 they presented “Before the Act,” a gala at the Piccadilly Theatre, to protest Section 28, which had been enacted on 24 May 1988.  The programme consisted of material created by gay men and lesbians, or on gay themes — exactly the type of “promotion of homosexuality” that might be considered impermissible under the act.  The pieces were performed by actors, singers, and writers including Maria Aitken, Francesca Annis, Jane Asher, Alan Bates, Jill Bennet, Suzanne Bertish, Simon Callow, Michael Cashman, Ian Charleson, Judi Dench, Paul Eddington, Rupert Everett, Stephen Fry, Jill Gomez, Rupert Graves, Richard Griffiths, Sheila Hancock, Heather Harper, Hot Doris Band, Lucy Jenkins, Miriam Karlin, Janis Kelly, David Kernan, Sara Kestelman, Mary King, Maureen Lipman, Nichola McAuliffe, Alex McCowen, Daniel Massey, Edna O’Brien, Gary Oldman, Gregory Parsons, Edward Petherbridge, Harold Pinter, Joan Plowright, Hugh Quarshie, Anna Raeburn, Simon Rattle, Vanessa Redgrave, Miranda Richardson, Elise Ross, Richard Sandells, Antony Sher, Imelda Staunton, Juliet Stephenson, Patrick Stewart, John Thaw, Timothy West, and James Wilby.
