I saw this film in 1963 and met Cherry Roland in 1984

I saw this movie in 1963 on a school ship call the Dunera which sailed from Newcastle to the Channel Islands, Vigo in Spain, Lisbon in Portugal. I was 13yrs old. I was mad about pop music and although the storyline was poor the stars were the 'it' of the day. The movie had been well published in the Newcastle Journal and as a up and coming 'mod' I just had to see it and never forgot it ever. Then in 1984 I met Cherry Roland. We bought a shop from her and her partner, Mirelle Wright, this was a Lingerie and Beachwear shop in Southport Merseyside.

Cherry became a great friend of myself and my wife Sue. We lost touch with her but saw her by chance in a bar in Calpe Spain in 1990.

This is the last time we made contact. Does anyone know where she is today?
