  • Description

    PRINCESS SORAYA, FORMER EMPRESS OF PERSIA, COLLAPSED IN TEARS ON THURSDAY AFTER AN INCIDENT WHILE SHE WAS FILMING IN VENICE.

    THE INCIDENT HAPPENED WHEN A PIECE OF LIGHTING EQUIPMENT FELL FROM A PONTOON. NARROWLY MISSING PRINCESS SORAYA, THE LAMP HIT HER CO-STAR, THE IRISH-BORN ACTOR RICHARD HARRIS, ON THE BACK. THE ACCIDENT HAPPENED WHILE HE AND PRINCESS SORAYA WERE IN A GONDOLA APPROACHING THE VENDRAMIN-CALERGI PALACE.

    MR. HARRIS WAS TAKEN TO HOSPITAL BUT RELEASED AFTER X-RAYS SHOWED HE HAD NO BONES BROKEN. LATER HE SAID HE WAS WELL ENOUGH TO START THE SCENE AGAIN.

    THESE PICTURES WERE TAKEN SHORTLY BEFORE THE INCIDENT. IN THE FILM, "THE THREE FACES OF WOMAN", RICHARD HARRIS PLAYS THE PART OF PRINCESS SORAYA'S LOVER.
