The Key

I stayed at your house a couple of weeks ago whilst researching for then and now pictures for The Ship That Died of Shame, and you kindly left me a message about your memories of the Key.

Thank you so much, It is this kind of personal item that makes the quest so pleasurable. John Tunstill

Glad to be of help...I was 10 and my father was the band leader at the Gloucester Hotel where Sophia Loren and William Holden were staying so he met them and said how pleasant they both were. Apparently, Trevor Howard was not so pleasant!! They were here for about 3 weeks and it was around June as I recall. The most memorable part for me was this huge white Cadillac that was parked outside the hotel to take William Holden to and from the film set.

Regards, Tony
