Several UK number ones: You're My World by Cilla Black, It's Over by Roy Orbison, House of the Rising Sun by the Animals, It's All Over Now by the Rolling Stones, A Hard Day's Night by the Beatles.  Some classics in there.

I've seen A Shot in the Dark and Marnie.  Most of the others I haven't even heard of.

I've only heard of The Unsinkable Molly Brown, and I haven't even seen that.

I never knew Cilla had a number 1. I knew she used to be a singer, but i didn't know it was a successful career. I figured that's why she switched to presenting.

She had two. Just looking at her discography & she was indeed pretty successful back in the 60s (& just into the 70s).

You learn something new every day. I wonder why she packed it in then?

Not sure ... I'm actually reading her Wiki page now because it's got me intrigued.

She was very big in the 60s, and very much part of the Merseybeat scene - she used to have the Beatles backing her at the Cavern.  She had her own TV show, as a lot of singers did in the 60s - although it was very much focused on the music, I suppose she got into presenting shows that way.
