Mixed Fancies is Brenda's life story. Born in Ramsgate during the 1940s, Brenda Bottle was the youngest of nine children. Her childhood by the sea was set against the backdrop of post-war deprivation but they were a happy family and survived through a mixture of discipline and fun. After working as a secretary for British Rail, Brenda saved up and, without telling her parents, enrolled at Guildford Drama School. And so her life as an actress began. Mixed Fancies is the moving and often hilarious story of her journey from the Plains of Waterloo to the National Theatre and on to television, Hollywood and stardom."--BOOK JACKET
