Random Photographs

Here are some random photographs from the Picture Show Annual of 1952 – which I would have thought would be published in time for Christmas that year. So these would have been taken that year or possibly 1951

ABOVE – This is billed as ‘ A platform full of stars who appeared at the Daily Mail Film Festival.

From Left to Right : Leo Genn, Nigel Patrick, Jane Hylton, Patric Doonan, Peggy Evans, Dirk Bogarde, Jean Kent, Susan Shaw, Andre Morrell, Sheila Manahan, Barry Jones, Olive Sloane, Richard Todd, Glynis Johns, Herbert Lom, John Mills, Richard Attenborough, Andrew Crawford, Patricia Dainton, Dennis Price, Vanessa Lee, Trevor Howard and Anna Neagle

Now how unusual is this – or was it – ABOVE A plane about to take off to transport some film stars of the day to the Film Festival in Uruguay.

Including Phyllis Calvert and her husband Peter Murray-Hill, Glynis Johns, Michael Denison and Dulcie Gray and Mr and Mrs Robert Beatty

ABOVE Vice Admiral Earl Mountbatten of Burma presents the British Film Acamedy Awards of 1950 to Tyrone Power and his wife ( Linda Christian )

It was a Bronze Statuette for the best film from any source – Tyrone Power and Linda Christian accepted this on behalf of his studio 20th Century Fox.

I think this picture was from 26 February 1951

ABOVE – This picture is at a reception for the newly released film ‘Pandora and the Flying Dutchman’ and here these stars are meeting Mario Cabre – the Matador in the film. Here we see Left to Right: Dennis Price and Patricia Dainton, Mario Cabre and then Beatrice Campbell and, with his hands all over her, Richard Todd.

The description mentions Richard Todd in ‘Flesh and Blood’ which was released in England in April of 1951 – just about the time when he would be starting the filming of ‘The Story of Robin Hood and His Merrie Men’ for Walt Disney at Denham Film Studios. Filming started on 30th April 1951 which, as I have mentioned before, was an unusually snowy day
