  • Description

    AMERICAN FILM STAR DANNY KAYE FLEW INTO LONDON TODAY (MONDAY) TO DISCUSS HIS APPEARANCE IN A PLAY AT THE CHICHESTER FESTIVAL THEATRE IN SUSSEX NEXT AUGUST. HE HAD SPENT FIVE HOURS OF THE FLIGHT GIVING OXYGEN TO AN ELDERLY WOMAN WHO HAD A HEART ATTACK THREE AFTER LEAVING CHICAGO.

    KAYE, WHO HAD SOME MEDICAL KNOWLEDGE, STOOD BY A HEATHROW AIRPORT, AS THE WOMAN WAS TRANSFERRED FROM THE PLANE TO AN AMBULANCE. SHE WAS TAKEN TO HILLINGDON HOSPITAL WHERE SHE DIED AT MIDDAY.

    ANOTHER ARRIVAL AT HEATHROW WAS 21-YEAR-OLD SINGER DAVY JONES, OF THE "MONKEES" POP GROUP. A 700 STRONG MOB OF SHRIEKING FANS KNOCKED OVER OTHER PASSENGERS, FORCED THEIR WAY THROUGH CUSTOMS BARRIERS AND BATTLED WITH POLICEMEN IN THEIR EFFORTS TO REACH HIM.

    WHEN JONES, THE ONLY BRITISH BORN MEMBER OF THE FOUR MAN GROUP, LEFT THE AIRCRAFT HE WAS DRIVEN OFF IN A POLICE CAR TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE AIRPORT. HUNDREDS OF MINI-SKIRTED GIRLS TRIED TO STORM THEIR WAY THROUGH A GATE GUARDED BY TWELVE POLICEMEN. HELMETS WERE KNOCKED OFF AND MANY GIRLS WERE BRUISED AND WITHOUT SHOES WHEN THE GATES WERE FINALLY SLAMMED SHUT.
