Cork Film Festival, Dawn Addams

Description

This is a black and white publicity headshot of the actor Dawn Addams. She is shown looking directly at the camera wide-eyed and lips parted. Addams (1930-1985) was very much a Hollywood star in the 1950s and her visit to Cork during this era was a highlight for the festival and the press. In particular her request, during the 1957 film festival, for a milk bath at the at the Cork Metropole Hotel caused much consternation. The request was shot down by the then manager of the hotel, Douglas Vance, because "the people of Cork are finding it hard to make ends meet" (Independent, 09.11.2012). Her vivacious personality must have been a joy to capture by the photographers of the day as is evident from the many photos of her in the archive.
