Description

This is a black and white photo of the actors John Clive, Pamela Stephenson and Nicholas Ball in a photo dated 1970. All three are facing the camera smiling. Clive and Ball wear a festival ribbon pinned to their jackets and we also notice how the belt of Nicholas Ball has the logo ‘ball’ stitched onto it.

John Clive, on the left in a tweed jacket, was an English film and television actor and author. He is best known to us from his film roles in The Italian Job (Peter Collinson, 1969) with Michael Caine, A Clockwork Orange (Stanley Kubrick, 1971) and four of the Carry On films from the 1970s. He also played a small part in the Norman Cohen directed movie Stand Up, Virgin Soldiers (1977); the Irish director Cohen also came to Cork around the time of this photo. Famously Clive was the voice of John Lennon in the animated film Yellow Submarine (George Dunning, 1968) as the Beatles did not want to use their own voices in the movie. He was also a successful author for his best-selling books including KG200, The Last Liberator, and Barossa.

Nicholas Ball and Pamela Stephenson were a couple around the time of this photo having being married for brief time in the 1970s before she met, and eloped with, Billy Connolly in 1979. Born in New Zealand, Stephenson has forged a prolific career as writer, performer and psychologist. Her movie credits include Stand Up, Virgin Soldiers (Norman Cohen, 1977) in which she acted with John Clive and Lynda Bellingham, both of whom were at the festival.
