Ken Russell in Bournemouth

Film director Ken Russell who died last night had many Bournemouth connections.

He visited from his home in Southampton as a child but many who hear his name will think of his 1977 film Valentino being shot at the Russell-Cotes Museum and The Grand cinema in Westbourne.

A number of local people can recall being an extra. The stars were Rudolf Nureyev and Leslie Caron.
