    Crikey, that's a young, pre-stardom Grace Kelly at 00:42!

    Sounds unlikely, I know, but she did a lot of modelling around 1949 and, as can be seen in Pathe clip 2493.23, was in Bermuda on honeymoon at the time.

    Further note: - the "honeymoon" I referred to earlier was in fact a modelling job to show off "honeymoon fashions".
