A brief note on dates. Vintage photographs are classified by approximate date. In most cases, this has been calculated using film publicity visible in the photograph itself. It is therefore possible that the photograph dates from one or two years later than stated, depending upon local release schedules. Photographs from Odeon Cavalcade appear to come in three batches - 1949ish, 1955ish and 1972ish.
