Yes she was delighted. She said his voice was even richer in person.

My great grandmother Mrs Mona Gray was the manageress of the White Palace becoming redundant at the grand old age of 91 when many cinemas became a ‘victim’ of the new video era and were closed. She would say back then that cinemas would one day return because it wasn’t the same watching a movie at home. I often think of that now especially when I go to the movies. As the oldest cinema manager in the UK Mona was invited to meet the Queen at the Royal Film Performance of Evil Under the Sun in ? 1983 where she also met James Mason. She relayed many memories to me about running the ‘Palace’ during the war and I have many of my own from working there during school holidays. Essentially I grew up there.
