Past Season:

A Life on the Film Set

Sun 02 Oct — Sun 16 Oct 2022

Highlighting the often overshadowed efforts of crew behind the scenes, this season will celebrate some of the highlights in Angela Allen’s illustrious career as a script supervisor. In her six decades on set, she ensured continuity for over 90 productions, working alongside some of cinema’s most notable filmmakers, including John Huston, Robert Aldrich, Franco Zeffirelli and Jim Henson. She has brushed shoulders with an abundance of renowned actors, including James Mason, Ava Gardner, Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Alan Bates, Oliver Reed and Charlotte Gainsbourg, to name but a few.

Having previously spoken about working with Carol Reed after our screening of The Third Man, Angela will return to the Garden Cinema to share her stories and anecdotes, as well as answer your burning questions.

To get a preview of what’s to come, listen to our recent podcast episode, where Angela featured as a guest:
