Prices Tailors Ltd., celebrity visit of film star, Patricia Medina (Burley) (9 comments)
Black & White imageEarly 1960s. Image shows some of the female workforce of John Collier's (remembered by many as Prices Tailors Ltd. although it was sold in 1954) as they cluster around celebrity and glamorous film star, Patricia Medina, who has dressed for her visit in a silk headscarf and fur coat. Standing to the left of her is Emily Bean, wearing a patterned knitted waistcoat. The actress expressed a liking for Emily's waistcoat and chose to be seated at her sewing machine station while signing autographs. Another smiling member of staff in the foreground, wearing a floral pinafore, awaits her turn and is holding a photograph of Miss Medina. Patricia Medina (1919-2012) starred in films from the late 1930s until the late 1970s with the majority of her roles being in the 1950s. These included the 'Siren of Bagdad' (1953) and the 'Beast of Hollow Mounain' (1956). She had a part in "The Killing of Sister George' in 1968. She was married twice, to actor, Richard Greene (of Robin Hood fame) from 1941 to 1951, and to actor, Joseph Cotten in 1960. Prices Tailors Ltd./John Collier's was a well-known local landmark (the factory was established here in 1923). It was located off Kirkstall Road in Cardigan Crescent / Lennox Road. The site is now that of Cardigan Fields Leisure and Entertainment Complex.
