Now we have a special treat for all of you who love to go back in time. Here is a photograph from the British film Pretty Polly which released in 1967. The film titled A Matter of Innocence in the U.S. had our very own Shashi Kapoor and the lucky lady next to him is Hayley Mills.
In this scene Hayley Mills enters a salon as a plain girl and comes out looking stunning and provokes Shashi into paying her a compliment. Shashi Kapoor was one of the first Indian stars to work in a foreign film and he did a pretty good job out of it. The film was based on a short story by Noel Coward and was Shashi Kapoor's second international film after the Merchant-Ivory film Shakespeare-Wallah.
