……It was 1956 and Effie had been at Horizon Studios only a year, but already felt she’d found her future. Her official job title was ‘production administrator’ but she was really a fixer, and had discovered that she possessed all the skills required. Horizon was making its name in comedy, but its longer-term goal was to equal Hollywood with home-grown smash-hit musical comedies to rival Singin’ In The Rain……
