    I hate to be cynical, but could the threat of inheritance taxes looming have anything to do with this ?
    In other words, a financial decision, rather than a romantic one ..?

    As he says his future wife has been with him through the hard times. He is worth over �35 million pounds so he'll be paying enough tax when he dies anyway. If he truly wanted to pay less tax he would have moved to Switzerland or Monaco years ago.

    Good luck and best wishes to them both.

    Remember that all transfers from a husband's estate to his wife are exempt from IT - but unmarried, Geraldine would receive a very large bill from HMRC...

    Like you, I wish them well...

    Bachelor-about-town Michael Winner sets wedding date at 75
    By Adam Sherwin

    The Independent
    Friday, 12 August 2011
    Bachelor-about-town Michael Winner sets wedding date at 75 - News, People - The Independent



    Michael Winner and Geraldine Lynton-Edwards in 1957

    He's had more than 130 lovers and admits to being unfaithful to them all. But Michael Winner is to end his reign as Britain's most confirmed bachelor by finally marrying, at the age of 75.

    The film director and food critic will marry Geraldine Lynton-Edwards, his fianc�e and on-off girlfriend of 40 years. Ms Lynton-Edwards, 70, a pilates instructor who nursed Winner back to health after he contracted a flesh-eating bug, has waited patiently for the director to set a date. They met in 1957 when she auditioned for a role in his debut film.

    They got engaged in 2007 but Winner told her: "Don't hold your breath for marriage." Yesterday he announced via Twitter: "Geraldine & I visited Registrar at Chelsea town hall to put the bans. Getting married mid Sept."

    He told The Independent: "Michael and Shakira Caine are going to be the witnesses. Michael said he was afraid I'd do a runner if he didn't witness the marriage himself. I've had 130 lovers so I've had a good run. Geraldine makes up for all of them."

    Winner, whose past amours include the actresses Jenny Seagrove and Jill Ireland, continued: "I've never been remotely close to marriage before. I didn't believe a marriage would be successful."

    His resistance was worn down by Ms Lynton-Edwards, who shares his 47-room Holland Park mansion and has learnt how to handle the notoriously bloody-minded Winner. "She has all the qualities I lack," he said. "I always thought I would get married when I found someone who was absolutely marvellous. Geraldine looked after me throughout my terrible illness. We've been together years and we've known each other for decades. It's the best thing to do."

    It wasn't the most romantic of proposals. "Michael [Caine] said if I got down on one knee I'd never get up. It just suddenly happened, after nine years together. We had a conversation and that was it. It was something she wanted and I wanted."

    The couple met when Winner was working on his short film The Square. Geraldine was 16, an aspiring actress. "She came to audition on the first film I ever made. She got the role but the dodgy bit is she also got me. We didn't actually get together for years."

    They enjoyed an on-off relationship from the 60s onwards but became a permanent fixture only in 2002 when Winner saw her and thought: "She looks bloody good." In 2007, Geraldine devoted herself to caring for Winner after he contracted a rare bacterial illness from oysters on holiday in Barbados, which required 11 life-saving operations. The former ballet dancer weaned him off champagne, cigars and rich food and on to a strict exercise regime. Winner claims he would be dead without her.

    The Chelsea wedding next month will be a low-key affair with just a few close friends. The Winners will honeymoon in Portofino.

    Would Michael Powell's old house also be worth �60 million today ?

    Interesting as MP was reportedly 'living in poverty' in the 1970s.....

    Today it would be, or even more as it's even bigger. But it wasn't worth that much in the 1970s, or even in the 1960s when he sold it.

    By the 1970s he had spent all of his money trying to fund various projects that never happened

    She does resemble Sue, doesn't she?

    I've seen them together a couple of times on TV and they are really well-suited - she's a really lovely lady.......and doesn't HE look well in that wedding photo too! Congratulations and good luck to them.
