  • Description

    Dorchester Hotel, London.

    Princess Margaret at Halloween Ball in aid of National Children Adoption Association. Newspaper cutting excerpt - I, like many others at the ball last night was almost taken aback at the change in the Princess. It was not just the new hair-do - though the ragged style is difficult to wear and tends to change a woman's personality.......I noticed it in the negligent way she pricked a balloon with her cigarette.

    Various shots of the arrival Princess Margaret being greeted by Mrs Abel Smith and others, of bouquet being presented by Mrs Lew Grade. Various shots of girls dressed as witches walking toward Princess Margaret's table holding balloons. Various shots of Princess Margaret drawing prizes for lucky programme numbers and presenting prizes. LS. Princess Margaret sitting on toy motor being pushed round. Various shots of couples dancing.
