I came across this cutting in Dad's archive as we were doing some sorting today - just noticed that it's exactly 10 years to the day ... from the Sunday Express, 11th February 2007:

Oh grahame - any mention of Jenny Aguttur stirs something in me!

Get thee to a nunnery! (Hang on - she did, didn't she?)

"That" film - Walkabout - got me in trouble at school.

We had a film club on a Saturday night and I was looking through the catalogue and saw Jenny Agutter's name listed by the film.  "Oh she was in the Railway Children, that'll be fine".

It would have been had not some first former written home to mummy......

Modern sensibilities too. What with Ms Agutter being 16 at the time of filming.

Age shall not weary them. She isn't much older than me, and frankly, the years have been kinder to her.
