I'm not theming this week as I had to prepare this posting in advance due to the inconvenience of it being financial year end this week, and all sorts of ridiculousness breaking out at work. My Sepia Saturday post for this week is another from my Picturegoer magazine collection. This week's posting dates back to November 10th 1945, and features Ann Todd as the cover star. Ann starred regularly in films for over 60 years from 1931 to 1992. Some of her more well known films include Perfect Strangers (1945), The Seventh Veil (1945) and Alfred Hitchcock's The Paradine Case (1947). Interestingly (well, to me anyway) was that she also starred in a 1949 film called The Passionate Friends. I remember a great song by the Teardrop Explodes called Passionate Friend from their 2nd album, Wilder, but can trace no link between the two. I did however discover during my research that the film was based on an H.G.Wells novel, so maybe the Teardrop Explodes song links with the novel.
As with all these coverstars, Amazon has a huge range of films featuring Ann Todd

And of course, no Picturegoer magazine feature would be complete without a view of the great vintage advertisments on the back cover.
