I miss all the terrific tv plays we used to see, mostly from the BBC. I am thinking Laurence Olivier in A Voyage Round my Father, The Norman Conquests series, The Singing Detective....the list is long. It was Jacqueline wot did it when she reminded me of this when she posted a clip of Marlene Dietrich singing You're the Cream in my Coffee. This is a clip from the terrific tv play Cream in my Coffee, written by the brilliant late Dennis Potter, and starring the late Lionel Jefferies and the wonderful Dame Peggy Ashcroft.
This is the final 7 minutes of the play and it has a quite intense finish. Vaguely from what I can remember having first seen it some 35 years ago, near to their wedding when they were young, she got drunk one evening and spent a night with the band vocalist who sings Cream in my Coffee. He was a thorough cad who just took advantage of her. In the recent scenes, clearly the Jefferies character is remembering her inappropriate behaviour at the same venue. Something like that, anyway. I think the external of the hotel used is the Grand Hotel in Brighton. Perhaps JayLa may confirm. The modern music......no wait, 1970s music, may not be to your taste, but I don't mind it at all.
