Lizabeth Scott, Jane Russell, Margaret Rutherford, Joan Rice, ? Merle Oberon, Fred MacMurray, Peter Lawford, Burt Lancaster.

According to the Pathe News footage of the event, Lizabeth Scott was introduced to the Queen as Zachary Scott ( who was standing to the right of Lizabeth!)

Who’s between Joan Rice and Merle Oberon?

It’s been pointed out to me (thanks, Vi) that the stars are standing in alphabetical order. Makes sense, I suppose. So the mysterious chap’s surname must  start O or R.




Fred and Gene Kelly,  ‘I love to go swimmin’ with wimmen’ from DEEP IN MY HEART.

  1. Cary’s shoes are known as the Co-respondent and also as the Spectator.
    Made popular in the U.S. when the Duke of Windsor wore them when he visited in 1925.

    According to Getty Images, it’s John Mills next to Joan Rice.

    Claude Jarman Jr. (note speliing) also won the “Juvenile Oscar” for The Yearling.

    • I too saw John Mills’ name, but I don’t see the resemblance. Looks too tall.
      Thanks for correcting my misspelling of Claude’s name.
      Love that info on Cary’s shoes. Thanks!

  2. Similar angle of Peter Reynolds.
