Beyer “surprised” he wasn’t consulted
The Daily Mail has an article on the upcoming Mary Whitehouse drama “Filth”. Whitehouse’s successor, “Massah” John Beyer is quoted:
It’s unfortunate they have tagged the story “Filth”.
To the best of my recollection, that wasn’t a word she used. Mary was not the poker-faced person that she was made out to be.
To suggest that she wasn’t ever smiling just isn’t true. I understand it is based on Mary’s autobiography.
My anxiety is that it will be embellished. The fact that I was not consulted is also surprising, given I worked alongside her for 16 years.
Her family hasn’t been involved either.
Julie Walters is set to play the leading role.
