Just watched a very strange horror film from 2012 featuring Honor in the cast, called Cockneys Vs Zombies. This did receive fairly positive reviews, despite being a bit thin on the ground plotwise. The sight of an octogenarian Honor Blackman mowing down zombies with a machine gun is a sight I never expected to see Exclamation Not Honor's best film, but worth a look. Rich.


welll to any actor plying their trade....any film that pays..is a good film...

Cockneys Vs Zombies sells itself as a silly comedy horror and it does what it says on the tin. It's got a great cast.

I'm surprised there has been no mention yet of Honor's birthday today.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/profiles/honor-blackman-turns-90-hollywoods-toughwomen-owe-a-debt-to-the-avengers-star-10462108.html

Happy 90th.

I'd always thought Honor was born in August 1926, not 1925. Happy belated 90th birthday Exclamation Amazing to think she was nearly 39 when she last played Cathy, and when she also played Pussy. She still looks amazingly young Exclamation

especially in an era where 39 was considered over the hill as an actress.

Paul O'Grady mentioned on his Radio 2 show that he's just recorded bonus features for an Australian DVD release of The Avengers with Honor Blackman.

The Talking pictures channel (Sky channel 343) is showing Honor's 1955 film, The Delavine affair this Thursday at 3.45pm. It's a thriller also starring Gordon Jackson. Only 64 minutes in length, so I imagine this is a B movie, but might be worth a look.

I've tried to find this story on the net. Has she definitely retired from acting? She was in 'You me and them' on GOLD TV last year and I did read an interview where she said she had read herself somewhere that she was supposed to have retired, but she said she had no plans to. If you've heard that she has, I wonder if she's had a change of heart.
