Description

This is a black and white photo of the actor Jane Seymour signing the visitors’ book in the Lord Mayor’s Office at the Cork City Hall. The Lord Mayor Pearse Wyse (1928-2009) stands on the right which dates this photo to his mayoralty 1974-1975. The reception includes the actor Patrick Wayne on the left and the Monty Python actor Carol Cleveland.

Cleveland, standing next to Wayne in this picture, was the only woman associated with the Monty Python show and would appear in thirty of the forty-five Monty Python episodes as well as the Monty Python films Monty Python and the Holy Grail (Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones 1975), Monty Python's Life of Brian (Terry Jones, 1979) and Monty Python's The Meaning of Life (Terry Jones, 1983). In 2014 she published Pom Poms Up! From Puberty to the Pythons and Beyond (Dynasty Press Ltd.) which was well received by the critics.

Jane Seymour, in a light-coloured polo neck jumper, is turned to the camera smiling as she signs the visitors' book. Born in 1951, Seymour has an extensive stage and screen career. She is probably best known for the James Bond film Live and Let Die (Guy Hamilton, 1973), Somewhere in Time (Jeannot Szwarc, 1980) with Christopher Plummer and Christopher Reeve, and the miniseries East Of Eden (1981) based on John Steinbeck’s 1952 novel, and which won her a Golden Globe award. She has numerous television credits including The Onedin Line (1972) with Peter Gilmore (who also came to the Cork Film Festival), Onassis: The Richest Man in the World (1988), for which she won an Emmy Award, and the long-running show Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman (1993-1998). Seymour also worked alongside Patrick Wayne on the fantasy film Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (Sam Wanamaker, 1977) which was made in 1975 but not released until 1977 because of the time involved making the stop motion animation sequences.

A bearded Patrick Wayne, stands on the left of this photo. Born in 1939, he is the son of the actor John Wayne (1907-1979) famous for his Western films. Patrick Wayne would act in eleven films alongside his father including the John Ford classics: The Quiet Man (1952), Mister Roberts (1955), The Long Gray Line (1955), and The Searchers (1956). Patrick Wayne was working on the fantasy film Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (Sam Wanamaker, 1977) with Jane Seymour when he was asked to come to Cork to represent his father’s new movie Brannigan (Douglas Hickox, 1975) starring John Wayne, Richard Attenborough and Judy Geeson – all of whom came to the Cork Film Festival. Interestingly the screenplay of Brannigan was by Christopher Trumbo, son of the screenwriter Dalton Trumbo – one of the ‘Hollywood Ten’ who had been blacklisted in Hollywood during the 1940s and 1950s.
