The first two contributions for our Stanley Baker monograph are in the bag. We’ve heard from US actor Alex Cord (Baker’s co-star in The Last Grenade) and also from Welsh acting giant Sian Phillips. Sian told a wonderfully warm and poignant tale of her friend and co-star in the 1976 TV series How Green Was My Valley. Baker said of his wife, Ellen: “She’s such a good girl. She’s good as bread”. It’s a wonderful sentiment and may end up being the title of the monograph.
Stanley Baker – good as bread
