Laurence Payne

Today's Guardian had an obituary of the actor Laurence Payne. It touches upon two subjects discussed upon this blog.

It turns out that Payne played Sexton Blake in the 1960s ITV series which I mentioned when discussing Don Taylor's The Exorcism.

And he also wrote a novel called The Nose on My Face, which was filmed as Girl in the Headlines. The trailer for this film was one of the extras on The Voice of Merrill DVD that I bought last Saturday.

Slowly the pieces fall into place.
