Tony Bryant interviews Peter Mitchell in Sur in English, 25 Mar 2022.

"One of Peter's most memorable periods came while he was performing with the Minstrels in Blackpool, when he was asked to dance in a Ken Russell production called Valentino, a film based on the life of Italian movie star and sex symbol, Rudolph Valentino, which starred Rudolf Nureyev.

"Ken Russell was an amazing film director, of course, and I had an amazing six months filming in Blackpool. It was purely a dance part, no speaking. Watching Nureyev rehearse and perform everyday was just incredible, However, he could be really temperamental, but he was very much a star," Peter explains, with a hint of excitement, as he recalls the period"
