10 October 2001 | by (Coventry Warwickshire) – See all my reviews

I first saw Trottie True when it was released . I was already a member of Miss Kent's fan club and she had a magazine full of English stars news.Trottie True was the second film I had seen in colour starring Miss Kent the other one being The Man Within .I am only sorry we still dont see her.
