  • Description

    Unused / unissued footage - dates and locations may be unknown or unclear.

    London - September 1947.

    Various shots of film stars meeting their public at a film star garden party. General elevated view of the party.

    Unidentified people in a jeep - shot is very dark - woman in large hat could be Margaret Lockwood. Eric Barker walks along with Pearl Hackney and their small daughter. Patricia Roc and others (including Richard Attenborough and Ian Carmichael?) are seen in a jeep. M/S of Jack Larue, Zoe Gail and others driving past in a jeep.

    Two girls crowd round a jeep getting autographs then move off so we see the object of their attentions - Stewart Granger. He makes a "Phew, all the girls are after me!" face at the camera.

    General view of enormous crowd of fans in a park. Two women and two men are seen at microphones - not recognised by this cataloguer - singers?

    C/U of film and stage actress Joan Dowling. C/U of Michael Dennison and Dulcie Gray. Film star Anna Neagle signs autographs, as do John Parsons and comedian Bud Flannagan. Back to Anna Neagle - man who looks very much like dancer and teacher Santos Casani looks over her shoulder as she signs autographs for disabled people in wheelchairs.

    Unidentified couple sign autographs under a cage-like structure as fans crush around them - looks a bit scary. Man in shadows signing autographs - could be Dennis Price? General shots of the crowds and grounds. C/U of poster advertising the film star garden party (6 September).
    Note: some shots are very dark making it hard to make out who is seen here.

    "Jack Larue" should read Jack La Rue.

    "Eric Barker walks along with Pearl Hackney and their small daughter" - their daughter is Petronella Barker, who grew up to be a successful actress in her right.

    "including Richard Attenborough and Ian Carmichael?" - Richard Attenborough yes, but Ian Carmichael isn't there.

    "Two women and two men are seen at microphones - not recognised by this cataloguer - singers?" - the two men are Jimmy Hanley and Jack La Rue, (Jack's the one who kisses the lady). The second woman seen is Carole Landis.

    "Michael Dennison" should read Michael Denison.

    "Bud Flannagan" should read Bud Flanagan.

    The date of filming is 6 September 1947.
