Studying what was on at the Town Hall Cinema in 1945 (Those Were The Days, Market Rasen Mail, September 2), I spotted an error on the poster.

Phyllis Calvert’s co-star in Fanny by Gaslight was not James Calvert, but James Mason – a delight for this 10-year-old film fan.

It cost me a week’s pocket money because, like the town hall, the cheap seats were a shilling in Beccles’ Regal Cinema, too.
