EFSP's Dazzling Dozen: New from GDI

In the Dutch village of Noord-Scharwoude is a small but dynamic Filmmuseum, the Geoffrey Donaldson Institute (GDI). Director is our friend Egbert Barten who always shares his new postcard acquisitions with EFSP. His latest acquisition is a collection of postcards of female stars from the early 1960s. In colour or in black and white, from European and Hollywood stars, published in the Netherlands and in Germany - and one in Italy. Many were sent by mail to a film fan in the village of Helden in the south of the Netherlands. We selected 12 postcards to give an impression which film actresses dazzled a Dutch film fan in 1962.
