In today's links, there's an announcement that Wendy Toye has died.

Ms Toye initially worked as a dancer and choreographer on both stage and screen before directing films herself.

She first appeared on stage aged three at the Royal Albert Hall, where her solo turn made headlines.


Just last month, Frederic Franklin had spoken so highly of her when discussing his own career and working with her.

Rest in peace, Ms. Toye.

I am saddened to see that Wendy Toye has passed away just a few weeks after Margaret Dale.

I knew Wendy Toye from her stage work and became friendly with her in 1986 when she assisted me in providing me with copies of her collection of photographs of the Sadlers Wells Ballet during war time for a Dance Festival I produced.

Miss Toye was a warm and enthusiastic woman who shared her memories and experiences readily.

I feel privileged that I knew her if only slightly.
