Description

This is a black and white group photo of the English actor Anna Neagle with the Italian actors Sylva Koscina, Luisa Della Noce and others. The group, dressed in formal wear, are standing together, and Neagle, in a sequined off-the-shoulder-gown, is having an animated conversation with one of the unidentified men.

Anna Neagle was the stage name of Dame Florence Marjorie Wilcox, DBE. She was a popular actor during the 1930s-1950s, best known for her many historical characters including Nell Gwyn in Nell Gwyn (Herbert Wilcox, 1934) and Let's Make Up (Herbert Wilcox, 1954). She is recorded in the Guinness Book of Records for her 2,062 consecutive performances in the stage play Charlie Girl which ran from 1965 to 1971. Neagle was awarded the CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in 1952 for her services to drama so would have been Lady Anna Neagle during her visit to Cork.
