Press cuttings

Scope and Content

This class consists entirely of press cuttings, the majority of which date from 1958-59. These were divided into two main bundles by John Donat: those listed in FRD3/1/1 relate to RD's death, funeral and memorial service, and posthumous tributes; and those in FRD3/1/2 consist entirely of reviews of RD's last (and posthumously released) film The Inn of the Sixth Happiness (although /1 also contains a few reviews of this film). FRD3/1/3 is a much smaller bundle which consists of general posthumous cuttings relating to RD in some way, collected by his son over a long period.
