"I read in a book once that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but I've never been able to believe it. I don't believe a rose would be as nice if it was called a thistle or a skunk-cabbage."

Behind the scenes

Trivia

  • Both West girls (Leslie and Rosemary) gave their sons name after their brothers who died as children. Bruce Meredith was named after his uncle Bruce and Kenneth Ford after Kenneth West. In the Victorian era, it was common for people to "recycle" names when naming children. When new parents thought of names, they would usually think of anyone in their family that had died and would honour them by naming their child after them.
