Scope and Content

Bundle of photographs, originally stored in two separate envelopes: /1-5 were labelled as "Rev. Hearne (inc. Judy Fowler"), and /6-16 as "Rev. Hearne some with Kay and Adrianne Corri". /17 had been mistakenly stored amongst the Magic Box photographs. These prints all relate to the 1954 film Lease of Life in which RD played the Rev. William Thorne. They include: publicity shots of RD as Thorne (/1-4 and /6-9); publicity shots of RD with Adrienne Corri, who played his daughter (/10-13), and Kay Walsh, who played his wife (/14-16); and two copies of a shot of RD as Thorne with two women (one of them identified as Judy Fowler) in an outdoor location (/5 and /17).
