Description: Historic photo showing Henry Fonda & Mrs Fonda speaking to the now legendary boss of Hoyts, cigar smoking Ernest G. Turnbull. The occasion is the preview party for the 3 Strip Cinerama Epic “How The West Was Won”, held at “The Plaza Theatre” Melbourne. Henry Fonda together with James Stewart & Debbie Reynolds were one of the major stars.

If you look into the background you can see the late Fred Crouch (BEF), & right at the back I suspect the gentleman in the right hand corner is Mike Walsh.?? The head behind Mrs Fonda could well be the late Gil Whelan – Contributed by Greg Lynch –
