Description

This is a black and white signed publicity photo of the English actor Garth Watkins (1922-1980). Watkins, in a suit, is shown sitting with papers in hand, turned towards the camera. His work includes Special Branch (1969-1974), Twins of Evil (John Hough, 1971) and The Madness (James Jones, 1976). Around the time of this image he had starred in Virgin Witch (Ray Austin, 1971) starring Ann Michelle and Vicki Michelle both of whom came to the festival in the early 1970s. While filmed in 1970 and copyrighted in 1971 Virgin Witch was not seen until 1972 for censorship reasons.

The photo is signed and dedicated to the former festival director Dermot Breen: To Dermot with best wishes, Garth Watkins, July 1972.
