Lightbulb Tommy Thumb's Pretty Song Book

Guitarist Steve Jones plays a shady private detective who - through a series of set piece acts - uncovers the truth about the band.. Drummer Paul Cook and bass guitarist Sid Vicious play smaller roles, and the band's manager, Malcolm McLaren, is featured as "The Embezzler", the man who manipulates the Pistols.. Fugitive train robber Ronnie Biggs, performer Edward Tudor-Pole, sex film star Mary Millington, and actresses Irene Handl and Liz Fraser also make appearances..The Swindle Continues in Your Own Home' was the tagline on the original 18 certificate VHS release from Virgin Video in 1982.. In 2005 the film was released on DVD by Sony...

Mary M (30 November 1945 – 19 August 1979) was an English model and pornographic actress. Her appearance in the short softcore film Sex is My Business led to her meeting with magazine publisher David Sullivan, who promoted her widely as a model, and featured her in the softcore comedy Come Play With Me, which ran for a record-breaking 4 years at the same cinema.. But she soon found herself being replaced by younger models, and this led to a downward spiral of drug addiction, shoplifting and debt. At 33, she died of an overdose..Mistress Mary, Quite contrary, has been described as 1 of the "2 hottest British sex film stars of the 70's", the other being Fiona Richmond..Millington committed suicide at age 33, using a deliberate overdose of tricyclic antidepressant anafranil, paracetamol and alcohol at her home in Walton-on-the-Hill, Surrey.. Her husband found her dead in her bed on 19 August 1979.. She apparent ley left 4 suicide notes which were found near her body.. In 1 of them she had written, "The police have framed me yet again.. They frighten me so much.. I cant face the thought of prison...The Nazi tax man has finished me as well"..She was buried at the St Mary Magdalene Church, Betchetts Green Road in the village of South Holmwood, Surrey.. Her grey granite tombstone is situated at the side of the churchyard and bears the surname "Maxted" – her married name. She is buried in the same grave as her mother, Joan Quilter, who died in 1976..In 2009 Millington was referenced in an episode of EastEnders (broadcast Thursday 18/06/09) when Aunt Sal , after hearing Ronnie had been caught in a compromising position on the Queen Vic’s floor, greeted Ronnie with "ooh, here she is, Mary Millington herself"..A cocktail and the VIP Bar in Modo's nightclub in Liverpool are named after her... all my years of judging, I have never heard before some one more deserving of the full penalty of law!..Are there any queers in the audience tonight? Get 'em up against the wall! That one in the spotlight, he don't look right! Get him up against the wall! And that one looks Jewish... and that one's a coon! Who let all this riff raff into the room? That one's smoking a joint! And that one's got leopard spots! If I had my way, I'd have all of you shot!.What have we here, laddie? Mysterious scribblings? A secret code? No! Poems, no less! Poems, everybody!..Do you remember me? I'm the one from the post office...
