A wonderful set of pictures from the making of “Age of Consent” has been added to the photo gallery. “Age of Consent” is often cited as Helen’s film debut, although this happened two years earlier with Peter Hall’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. But it was without question her breakthrough in the movies after 10 successful years on the stage. Helen was 23 years old during the making in Australia. A couple of additional production stills have been added as well. Enjoy the new pictures.
