About the author
Renée Glynne’s career in film began in 1943 in the Scenario Department at Welwyn Studios. In the ensuing 60+ years Renée has become one of the British film industry’s finest script supervisors and continuity women ever produced.

From working on classics like David Lean’s Brief Encounter and Caesar and Cleopatra, Renée moved on to the small independent company Hammer Films, working on many of the early features produced under the Exclusive banner including The Man In Black and The Quatermass Xperiment. During the 1960s and 70s she worked alongside the likes of The Rolling Stones, Jean Luc Godard, Peter Sellers, and Led Zeppelin, eventually moving into television with stints onCatweazle and The New Avengers.

Since (unofficially) retiring from the industry in 2005 Renée has reinvented herself as an artist, exhibiting regularly, and always happy to meet admirers from her pitch on the Bayswater Road most Sundays.
