To answer your question about   whether  there was footage of the modern 
"Stormfield" in the Documentary  "Dangerous Intimacy" I can say yes.
I worked with Producer  Richard Altemonte coordinating for the filming 
locations, and I played the role  of Jean Clemens in the film. There was filming 
at the modern  Stormfield and at The Lobster Pot

Needless to say, another vie_wing of this disk is in order, for  comparison
