  1. I simply worship Miss Maughan, and have all of her recordings (which I'd be happy to share). Leave it to TRVH to resuscitate her. Wonderful you!

  4. Until I read the first comment, I thought this was a clip from a vintage Miss America Talent contest....she could sing and follow the bouncy ball that's for sure!

  5. She could always hold her own in the vocal stakes... Apparently she still tours the UK today, with those "Hits of the 60s" shows - and she celebrates her 75th birthday this year! Jx

  6. I couldn't help but think that, as fabulous as this is, it would have been more so if she had a shifting, double strand of beads for this number.

    1. She's from Consett, County Durham - they're not used to such luxury "oop North"! Jx

  7. OK, here goes. Back in the 1970s she played Dick Whittington in pantomime, and I played her cat, Tommy! It's true. I was Dick's pussy! Somewhere there are photographs. I choreographed the production too. She was a peach, the sweetest thing. A trooper too. She worked those routines like a Broadway star. I have a copy of Margot Fonteyn's 'The Magic of Dance', Susan's last-night gift to me, inscribed by her. We never worked together again, never kept in touch. But for three long months I purred and romped and insinuated myself against those endless legs, while she caressed and petted me. We were a team!

  8. I remember her singing "Bobby's Girl" on TV in the early sixties. She was beautiful then as she is beautiful now !!!
