Film Stars have time to Relax


Well, of course, the film stars of the day did have a life outside of movie land – and generally they were all family people as these pictures show.

They went about their business as normal and then relaxed in whatever way they each wanted to.

They later divorced and Patricia Medina  went on to marry Joseph Cotton – and they had one of the happiest marriages in Film Land over many years.  Patricia said in an intyerview that her and Joseph Cotton had spent only one night apart during their thirty years of marriage and she said that it was terrible for them  to be apart.

They loved one another to the day he died – and she continued to love him after he had gone.

I am puzzled however by this picture because within a short time of this picture being taken Rosamund John had divorced Russell Lloyd and married the politician John Silkin who she had met through her interest in politics. He was nearly ten years younger that Rosamund but they soon had a child – a son – and went on to live a long and very happy life together. He became an MP and was in the Labour Government of Harold Wilson – she frequently attended Parliament to listen to him speak.

I can’t find any mention of the son John, pictured above.  I will look further into that.
