That 1966 Royal Film Performance ...

Maybe the best line-up ever?  I have posted photos from this event before here, those shots of Julie Christie, Catherine Denueve, Ursula Andress, and then with Leslie Caron and Warren Beatty. I had not realised there was newsreel footage of it, and that it also included Dirk Bogarde, Deborah Kerr, James Fox, Rex Harrison and Rachel Roberts, Christopher Lee, Raquel Welch and more, as well as the stars of the film (BORN FREE) Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers. AND they had a dress rehearsal earlier .... as per below. 
Here are some other shots: Deborah chats to the '60s girls, and Warren noticing Julie being presented to Her Majesty. This apparantly is where they met ... certainly a star-studded evening, the likes of which they don't have now, of course it was 48 years ago! 
Deneuve, Lee, Welch, Allen, Andress, Bogarde, Christie, McKenna, Travers
