Following on from Swinging Sixties Icons this is an interesting interview with Lesley Hornby aka Twiggy in which she hints at a movie career. https://youtu.be/Y1uNxKKLnok And we all know what happened next. https://youtu.be/SHba06Y8TA0 But I couldn’t remember if Twiggy had made any other films, so quick Wiki search to see what else she was in:…… Continue reading Interesting Interview with Twiggy
