‘Attila’ Movie Premiere Bayswater

Stars walk the red carpet at the premiere of the film Attila.

The screening was at Queens cinema in Bayswater, since developed into a new set of flats and retail outlets (see last image)

I cannot identify any of the people in the pictures, anyone able to help out?

The movie was released in the US many years before these pictures were taken.

Cal McCord in the Gaumont Theatre, Shepherd’s Bush

cal McCord Gaumont Sheperds Bush

Cal McCord sits atop Ladybird in the foyer of the Gaumont Theatre in Shepherd’s Bush. This theatre was damaged during the war by a flying bomb, more infomation here.

The picture was shot with the doors behind the children, the trees of Shepherd’s Bush Common visible.

According to here Cal was an American ex-serviceman who remained in the UK becoming a cowboy actor and entertainer.

There is imdb entry which shows he did have roles through till the early 1972’s.  There is also an interesting clip via the Pathe News archives of his stage act a decade earlier.
