‘Always Something There to Remind Me’ – photo by Gail Herbert

This is from a ‘Golden Oldie Picture Show’ shoot for the song, ‘Always Something There to Remind Me’. It was written by Bert Bacharach and Hal David in the early 1960s.  Different versions were recorded by Lou Johnson and Sandie Shaw, I’m not sure which one was used in ‘Golden Oldies’.

The ‘Golden Oldie Picture Show’ was an entertainment show, of specially shot  films for hits which pre-dated the  music video era.  It was produced at Pebble Mill by John King’s department and presented by Radio 1 DJ, Dave Lee Travis.  Gail Herbert was the production assistant on the series.

I’m not sure what the story behind this particular video was, but it seems to be of a transvestite recreating the scene featuring the famous Marilyn Munroe dress.
