Terminal Café

Group 65

Group 65 was a film planned to be shown at a now forgotten SF convention in 1965. It was worked on for some six months, only to fall apart soon after. The camera man was Chuck Despins, who later went on to make a name for himself in the industry. These photos were donated by Langdon Jones, who deserves many thanks for doing so.

Claire Peake, the daughter of Mervyn Peake, who was to be the lead actor in the film.
