Administrative/Biographical history:

Miss Goodfellow (fl 1896-1979) was born c 1895, in Forest Hill, South London. Like her mother, she became a seamstress when she left school, working for others at first before becoming self-employed, working for private clients. As London expanded and people moved away to other areas, Miss Goodfellow bought a car in 1934 in order to be able to follow her clients. One of the clients was the mother of the filmmaker Julius Hogben, who interviewed her in 1978, when she was aged 82. This became a 24-minute colour documentary that was screened at the Los Angeles Film Festival in 1979. He and Miss Goodfellow attended this event, which produced an article entitled, 'Miss Goodfellow Goes to Hollywood'.


Scope and content/abstract:

The archive consists of a transcript of film; article on film by Hogben; handout for film with photograph of Miss Goodfellow; two letters from Hogben concerning the production of the film; 2 photographs of Hogben and Miss Goodfellow.
