The King's gym
Maurice Denham as the King (thanks to Brian Sibley)
Yak El-Droubie sent in some wonderful shots taken by Douglas Webb on the set of The King's Breakfast. The sets, seemingly painted by Searle's hand, match his designs perfectly. Like the 1954 Chelsea Arts Ball it's always a thrill to see Searle's work transferred into 'three dimensions'-imagine being on set in a 'walk-in' Searle painting!
I found all these wonderful designs on Photographers Direct.com but they're all very low-res and I couldn't get anywhere contacting the agency directly. Please contact me at the address in my Blogger profile if anyone has more info on the photographer/rights holder
