How does one go about researching a cult movie figure and making the case for them with 'official' culture?
Specifically Lydia MacDonald.
I am interested in her because she was born in Edinburgh, where I live, to an Italian mother and Scottish father, and went to Italy circa 1944, where she become the favoured vocalist of Piero Piccioni, one of the great composers of the Italian cinema.
I would like to see her get a plaque of acknowledgement like Alistair Sim and Sean Connery. (Within a mile of where I live there is also the HQ / office of J&B; I will need to get a photograph...)
