In 1959 Hollywood graced Melbourne, the chosen location for the blockbuster film ‘On The Beach’. Director Stanley Kramer came armed with stars Fred Astaire, Gregory Peck, Ava Gardner and Tony Perkins. The production used well known Melbourne locations as their back drop for the feature film and selected one worthy Australian photographer to shoot stills of the film, set and behind the scenes for promotional material to advertise the film. Gordon De Lisle was recruited and was a well known photographer at the time. He had complete access and was able to capture relaxed moments of the cast and crew, a rarity in today’s productions.
These silver bromide photographs will be available to view on 13 of June as part of the Prints auction.
