She has kept a rich seam of photographs and memorabilia from her life, and her parents, family life, childhood, teenage and early years as an actress living in insalubrious flats are vividly documented." "Helen's many distinguished roles in theatre, cinema and television and the illustrious men and women she has encountered and commemorated, as well as her forays into Hollywood, and her subsequent life in the US with her husband, film director Taylor Hackford." --
