    I was leaning towards Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn. But I suspect it's neither.

    Neither of those but equally famous I think. I don't actually know what she's doing, or pretending to do, or even what that thing is on top of the mudguard (or fender as she would probably call it – that's a clue). Fitting a new battery into the front light?

    I like the horn. I've thought of getting one myself.

    I thought I spotted a hint of a young Joanne Woodward. Google images does not confirm this... 😕

    No it won't 'cos it ain't Joanne Woodward LOL

    Good try though. I've got another pic of the featured young woman, also with a bicycle, pumping up the 'tires' (or pretending to).

    I also thought of Audrey Hepburn at first. Or else Patrick has managed to unearth a photo of Hilary preparing for her first century ride?

    To make things easier, here she is again (preparing for a century ride):


    Nothing beats pumping up bicycle 'tires'.

    Er, no it doesn't. Although if I had seen that second picture I wouldn't have suggested the names above. (I might have suggested June Allyson, but I don't think even as a young starlet she was ever that pretty.)

    True, she is pretty. Here she is once more:


    But I don't think that will help either. So the final clue: her (less pretty) daughter rode (or pretended to ride) a speeder bike. Should be easy now...

    Er, she maybe needed those 'fenders' for Cyclin' in the Rain?

    I did get it with the final photograph, but I think I get the speeder bike reference only knowing who the mother is 🙂

    I wasn't sure if the speeder bike was your age group LOL

    (I would not normally have watched it)

    The "she" in question was in 'Darcey Bussell Dances Hollywood' which was (repeated) on TV last week. Not in person though. Gene Kelly's daughter was.

    Even Darcey couldn't match the original mornin'.

    😆 😆 😆

    I'm afraid I'm a bit lacking in film star good looks! Not much good at identifying film stars either.

    With-bike pics: early 1950s Debbie Reynolds. You'd have got it if she'd been a proper cyclist Hilary.
