Stars of silver screen

Recently, 48 members of Forfar Probus Club welcomed Andy Paterson from Errol, who delighted his audience with a gallery of pictures from the movies.

He had researched his material extensively with publicity shots, posters and anecdotes from the silent era through the Hollywood greats to the 50s.

It was a real nostalgia trip for members with early black and white photos of many fond memories.

Andy presented his photos in sections: leading men, gangsters, adventures, horror, cartoons and a quiz to finish, with little anecdotes and a humorous commentary obviously honed during his 16 years as an SFA referee.

It was obvious that Andy loves his subject and the hour just flashed past.
