Home movie footage, c. 1950s


The folks at the beginning are Jerry Epstein (far left), Kay Kendall and Rex Harrison. Kendall was a former girlfriend of Sydney (the younger) and was Charlie's first choice to play Ann Kay in A King In New York. I think the first blonde is Noelle Adam, son Sydney's wife and the second (the one who hugs Charlie) is Oona's childhood friend, Carol Marcus (later Matthau, wife of Walter) but this is just a guess. There is also a brief shot of Claire Bloom sitting on the lawn at the Manoir.
