Premiere of Lord Jim in 1965, Susannah York can be seen chatting to Maximilian Schnell. Also in the clip are Sean Connery with his then wife Diane Cilento, and a great close-up of Peter O’Toole looking very handsome too.

Susannah York is probably in more videos but not listed in our canister notes, so if you find her in any other clips from the swinging sixties then let us know!
