Tom and Pattie ...

Here's a terrific photo from a 1963 fashion shoot with rising young actor Tom Courtenay, for one of those glossy fash mags like VOGUE or the stylish London magazine TOWN -  I used to like that one when I was 16. But who is the girl? No, it is not Julie Christie but teenage Pattie Boyd, who was on film herself the next year in A HARD DAY'S NIGHT, where she met George Harrison ... Tom's BILLY LIAR had probably just opened - its a perfect early '60 shot, which I had not seen before, so thanks to Colin for sending it. No idea who the photographer was. 


  1. How fabulous! Never seen that before, might have to 'pinch' it for my blog too if that's ok?!

  2. Of course, I found it fascinating too.
