Lionel Gamlin interviews Madge Elliott and Frank Pettingell
This evening 'Close-Up' comes to an end after having run continuously once a week since the beginning of the programme for the Forces, bringing famous film, stage, and cabaret stars to the microphone. Now the series winds up by presenting two stars from those highly successful shows - Swinging the Gate and Come Out of your Shell. Madge Elliott in Stringing the Gale has thoroughly established her reputation as an artist of uncommon versatility. Frank Pettingell has been a 'straight' comic on stage and screen for many years, and is now making his debut in revue.
