  1. Oh my! Where to start? I love the Shah’s “laundry line” of medals! I have never seen so many on one person. Queen Soraya epitomizes 1950’s glamour with her mink trimmed gown and cigarettes. But most of all, I love the plummy tones of the announcer on the Pathe news items. It just makes me smile. How elegant they were!
