Do let us know if you can match the faces with names.
We are always looking for more help with identifying these filming locations and would be grateful for any positive identifications, snippets or references you can offer about these movie making locations.
To view the now location shot, just mouseover the filming location still. Stills with a red border do not have a now shot.
stph011. A Douglas Burn original 27.1.63, Daily Sketch Picture Library 23rd Jan 1963, dated four days before.
Australia Day Party Wilton Dickson drinking a glass of beer whilst standing on his head. Hmmm. Watching him is actress Bettina Dickson who appeared in The Shiralee.
stph012. Dennis Hamilton perhaps, La Dors, thin man, dark lady, could this next one be Lew Grade? and an unknown. Di Davies says; I think the unidentified lady is a young Shirley Bassey.
stph013. Dors, pregnant, with the same two companions.
Who are they?
Photo by Douglas Burn.
Di comments; Shirley Bassey on the right and man looks like a very young Sean Connery.
stph014. Dors and Dicky Dawson outside the London Clinic after visiting Denis Hamilton, Dors' husband, 11.10.58, Douglas Burn photograph.
Di Davies adds; Diana Dors was actually married to Dickie Dawson between 1959-66 (Wikipedia).
Perhaps on the 11th October 1958 they were just "going steady", "walking out" or were an "item".
stph015. Faith, .......and the two in the back?
Unknown photographer and date.
stph016. Field and Liberace, unknown photographer. 1060's.
stph017. Field and friends.Another Douglas Burn photo. Both ladies are wearing wrap-around oriental coveralls, and the plate has LU in oriental "stick" writing. Domonic Mann believes the man to be Bob Monkhouse.
stph018. Fraser, and two ladies and a boy with a cat on his shoulder. Stamped on rear Douglas Burn and daily sketch 12 Mar 1964.
Caption, coat, stockings damaged, covered in cat hairs as well as getting several scratches, 11.3.64. Cat auditions, Vaudeville Theatre (see story).
Auditioning for the "Mouse Trap"? Ho, Ho!
Robert Ross says that it is certainly Betty Marsden at the forefront, so it would be for the play 'Everybody Loves Opal'. (RL)
