As I was browsing through the series of posts about the original characters, I looked at Margot Bryant's profile and noticed that someone (I think Flaming Nora) had inserted a link with Minnie's final appearance.
The video was uploaded only two days ago and it is a pearl. Let's hope that Ena Sharples' and Albert Tatlock's last scenes are also uploaded soon.
In her last scenes, Margot Bryant did have trouble remembering her lines and had to disguise her script behind her handbag or, as in this scene, on the shop counter.
If you're wondering why Rita's rude with her, Elsie Howard had just returned to the street after a three year hiatus and was staying with Len Fairclough. Rita was jealous of their friendship and so she wasn't in the mood for Minnie's dithering over Easter eggs.
Enjoy and let's remember that Corrie legend Minnie Caldwell!
