Showpeople (6): on location - at work and play
Marilyn and Mongomery Clift on the set of THE MISFITS - is she the most photographed woman ever? We are still finding pictures of her [all from that 12 year period 1950-1962] which we had not seen before, almost 50 years later, and new MM books roll off the presses, including now fragments from her archives
A 1966 fashion show: Barbra Streisand, Elsa Martinelli and Marlene again... don't know who the others are!
Kay Kendall and Lauren Bacall at the theatre in early 1959 (Kay died later that year). I wonder what they were seeing at the Royal Court? They don't seem to be enjoying themselves....
Neither do Kay's pals Dirk and Judy: a shot I had not seen before: Dirk Bogarde and Judy Garland in what must have been a break during their long scene (which they wrote) in I COULD GO ON SINGING, 1963. It looks like they were not speaking by this stage as it was a very troubled shoot with Judy alienating everybody including her pal Bogarde....
I don't usually go a bundle on McLaine, but Shirley looks good settling in for a transatlantic flight, lots of leg room too...[maybe this was to promote WHAT A WAY TO GO with Gene Kelly].
