Thank you Rob yes will keep you informed. The BFI in London have several pieces of memorabilia I suspect Stan may have seen before (though sadly no copy of the actual film seems to exist anywhere...?). I'd naively suggested to him we could visit and take a look at what they had and he had to politely decline. However, I have managed to obtain a mint copy of BFI's May 1966 Monthly Bulletin (a snip @ 2-bob; 2/-; 10p for the uninitiated) which reviews - a bit unkindly - Doomsday) but no production pix.

Thanks Michael. Are you willing to send me a scan of the article for the webpage, or is it that bad? big grin
I'd love to see it either way

...and collective thanks to tireless Webmaster Guru Rob for proudly showing Stanley's great work for all to see.
Fantastic memorabilia from my Grandpa's work with Stanley I hadn't known about was found here and allowed me to contact Stanley. Wasn't I very lucky... in so many ways.

Rob F Monday, 10 September 2018 08:52
Thanks for the kind words Michael. I know that Stan loved chatting to you on the email about his Merton Park memories. Please keep in touch, and if you ever find that elusive Doomsday poster (or anything else) let me know!

The website will continue and I'm in the process of tidying it up a little bit. There will always be new things to to unearth. I just found a Russian translation of the novel Trance that Stan knew about but had never seen!

How very - VERY sad to get this news.

I can only say it was a proud privilege to have known Stanley; if only briefly via email. A true and charming gentleman by his demeanour in our regular cyberspace exchanges.

Selfishly, I deeply regret not having had the opportunity to meet him personally, although did feel we got to know each other.

Our common link was that my Grandpa worked with Stanley on a couple of productions back in the day; "The Square Mile Murder" & "Doomsday At Eleven" - aside from enjoying his welcome recollections of those, I had been on a quest to obtain an original poster of the latter for Stanley (as had learnt he dearly wanted one) which remains elusively rare.

So thank you Stanley and farewell; I hope you can now look down on us from your writing desk in the clouds and amuse at all our madness around.

You will certainly never be forgotten and we surely all convey our heartfelt warmest respects to Linda.

Friends, I wish I didn't have to write this message but I've just had the devastating news that our dear Stanley Morgan has passed away at the grand old age of 88 frown

This website and the messages that people left for him were a huge source of happiness for him. He made many new friends along the way, gave lots of interviews and told many stories. Please feel free to leave any condolences here, his family will see them and I'm sure it will be appreciated

He will be missed by so many, not least myself, his loyal webmaster for the past 16 years. The site will get a proper overhaul shortly as a permanent tribute to the great man.

So I guess . . . the Russ Tobin movie never came to fruition?

And no more books from you?

Wish there was good news on both those fronts.

Hi Stan. Here I am again with your yearly Birthday wish! Many Happy Returns!!!!
As you know I am on continual cycle of the complete series and am now, once again, back at the beginning on "The Machines". Can't wait for the next two, which as you know are my favourites.
As always, I wish you and the family well.
Kind regards,
Tony

StanleyMorgan Sunday, 12 November 2017 17:45
My dear Tony...thank you so much. It's always a great pleasure to hear from you.

All the best to you and your family.
Cheers and warmest regards

Very kind, Murray, thank you. Yes, 40 good years - and I'd like to live them all over again. Bery best wishes. Stan.

Dear Mr Morgan,

I am Luis, 17 years old boy from Spain. I am 007 great fan. I hope you are well.

I am writing to you because at my age I have written a book called James Bond: detrás del smoking published by Amazon and available in paperback and Kindle edition about James Bond and his world from the first novels of Ian Fleming to the nowadays cinematographic films

I am the admin of a Facebook group with more than 2.000 followers, a Facebook page and a blog called "The World of James Bond".

I will launch a new edition of the book in English and I think it will be INCREDIBLE to enclose a short interview with you. Everybody will be very glad.

The interview with you would not be the only one because I will include a new chapter about the Spanish actors in 007 films as Simón Andreu (Die another Day), Carlos Leal (Casino Royale) or Fernando Guillén (Quantum Of Solace). Also I had the opportunity to talk and interview with Dame Judi Dench and Bérénice Marlohe (Skyfall). Also, I interviewed make-up designer Naomi Donne, costumer designer Jany Temime, stunt-actor Bobby Holland and Gemita Samarra, stunt specialist Gary Powell, Terry Bamber who has a very strong connection with the films and many others. Also I had the opportunity to speak with Raymond Benson, the first American who wrote a Bond novel. I also met for my book Harry Saltzman’s son, Steven.

Thank you very much and please, let me know if you need more information or whatever,

StanleyMorgan Wednesday, 23 August 2017 00:54
Dear Luis, Thank you for this message. I would be pleased to give you an interview. Would you contact me at my email address: stanleymorgan@lineone.net and we will discuss how you intend to conduct the interview. Best regards.

Hi Stan. I hope this finds you still well. No communique for a while, but still recyling the books. Currently our lad is in Tahiti just arrived at the D'Urville party, and we know what happens next.
Anyway, just a quick update to let you know I'm still doing the rounds and still thinking of you. Stay well.
Kind regards,
Tony

Stanley Morgan Friday, 14 July 2017 10:29
Many thanks, Tony. Always good to hear from you. Sorry for the delay getting back to you. Everything okay here - just a bit older than last week. Hope all is well with you and yours. Best regards.

I was re-reading my classic Russ Tobin novels for the squillionth time and it struck me that next year will be the 50th anniversary of the first novel in the series, The Sewing Machine Man. If it took you, say a year, to write it, then it is likely that 2017 could see the true 50th birthday of his creation.
This is an excellent "excuse" for two worthwhile projects: a box set of all the novels and a feature film.
Mr Morgan, you are a genius and my hand-signed copy of "Cuckoo" remains a prized possession. Thank you for half a century of laughs.

Stanley Morgan Monday, 1 May 2017 00:10
Hi Martin, Thank you so much for these kind words. Yes, it did occur to me very recently that we were approaching the 50th anniversary - and applaud your suggestion of a box set and a film. You are truly one of Russ's greatest fans and I appreciate your writing very much. Forgive the delay in responding, I've been away for a few days. Thank you so much for your continued support. My very best regards, Stanley

Hi Stan,
Even though I left myself a Calendar reminder, I forgot my normal "Happy Birthday!" greeting for yesterday. Wel, Happy Birthday, for yesterday. As always, I hope you are keeping well, and also the family. Since my last communique in April, when Russ was on his way to OZ, I have completed the series once again, and have restarted, once again! I read Sewing Machine Man, Dept Collector and Courier, and realising how much I enjoyed those 2, reread them both again. He's currently paddling in the cool shallow waters with Jean on his first night in Majorca.
Anyway, once again, hope all is good.
Kind regards,
Tony

Stanley Morgan Monday, 14 November 2016 14:16
My Dear Tony...Thank you so much for writing, and for the Birthday wishes. Yes, I and the family are all well So pleased to hear you're enjoying Russ so much. You have to be his NO.1 fan. In return, I hope you and the family are also thriving, and send my very best regards to you. Always splendid to hear from you. Stan.

Dear Stanley.

I'm so pleased to have found someone who knows so much about Merton Park Studios.

My father Brian Rhodes worked there over many years, I know he worked on the film "The clue of the Twisted candle" and many more of the Edgar Wallace franchise.

Jack Greenwood I believe gave my father his start in the business.

My father also worked on the first goon film "The case of the Mukkinese Battlehorn", I've been trying to get hold of a DVD Copy of that film and any of the Edgar Wallace film series, I wonder if you would know where I may get hold of any of those films?

Any idea of film posters for the Edgar Wallace series either would be appreciated?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank You Tony R

Stanley Morgan Friday, 17 June 2016 12:23
Dear Tony, Many thanks for your message. Please drop a line to my email address: stanleymorgan@lineone.net and I'll reply to you by email.

Hi Stan Just giving my usual check in. Finished the Harry Potter books and now back on the hard stuff. Our Russ is currently in Tahiti and has just said goodbye to Maggie and about to hit it off with Angelique D'Urville.As always I hope you're all well?Kind regards.Tony

Stanley Morgan Tuesday, 12 April 2016 13:28
And as always, great to hear from you, Tony. All very well here, thank you. It delights me that you're still having fun with Russ, though, unlike him, those books must be getting a bit ragged by now. All the best, Stan.

Drusilla Attwood Thursday, 16 July 2015 17:28
Good morningMr MorganI worked at Merton Park Studios from 1961 to 1965compiling the release scripts for all the films that you mentionbefore they were sent abroad and dubbed in a foreign language. And I certainly remember Jack Greenwoodwho was feared and respected at the same time. As you saymaintaining a tight budget was his only missionbut at least he kept the Studios running.Under the splendid guidance of Senior SecretaryBetty BarfootI eventually 'graduated' to Secretary to the Technical AdvisorBaynham Honri. Very happy days.I do hope you are keeping welland thank you for the memoriesKindest regardsDrusilla Attwood (nee Potter)

Stanley Morgan Monday, 24 August 2015 19:16
Dear Drusilla,Many thanks for your message. How wonderful to hear from someone who shares the 'Merton Park Experience'. You are the only sharer to contact meand it happened so very long ago I sometimes question that it happened at all! If you'd care to contact me direct on stanleymorgan@lineone.net I'd be delighted to hear from you.Very best regardsStanley

Hi Stan. Just posting my early yearly Happy Birthday message for Monday and hoping you are well.Well I'm well into my next re-read and our lad is currently in Nassau just about to go aboard the Cruise ship with Frenzy and Stud as the back-end of a horse. Remember? Then he'll be off to Miami (though he doesn't know it) and his many adventures with Buzz. Again hoping hyou are well and sending all the best wishes.Tony

Stanley morgan Saturday, 15 November 2014 18:58

Hi Stanley thanks for your reply. You are right it is a complex issue and my instincts tell me it is wrong. Tearing up 300 years of shared history etc just for short term political reasons can never be justified. Thanks again Stanley and all the best.

Stanley Morgan Friday, 19 September 2014 17:50
Hi Chris. So - now we NO! So pleased it turned out this way. Best wishes...Stanley.

Hi Stanley i have been reading and enjoying your books for years. My question is a bit random but prescient. What is your opinion on the Scots Independence referendum? Are we Better Together or should the UK split? If you don`t have an opinion no worries. All the best Chris.

Stanley Morgan Friday, 5 September 2014 18:21
HelloChristhank you for writing. I find the matter of Scottish Independence too complex and far-reaching to offer an opinion. So many viewpoints to considerand all requiring particular knowledge.And yet...my 'feeling' is: 'We'd hate to lose you'.With best regardsStanley

Hi Stan. How are you doing? Just an update. It's been a while! I've read the whole series again TWICE and he's currently among the stars. I'll be starting again on Sewing Machine Man by the end of the weekend. I tend to read cuckoo once every 4 rounds as he's not the same Russ.Hope you and your family are well. Haven't seen a reply to the lasy message someone posted so hope you are ok.Kind regards as always.Tony

Stanley Morgan Tuesday, 29 July 2014 16:50
Many thanksTony. Good to hear from you.We're in good healthenjoying this fine summer. Best wishes to you and the family.Stanley
