Following the surrender, British troops rehearse evacuating Fort William Henry through the smoldering battlefield.

SOME MORE ... FROM THE ARCHIVES!
Someone from the theatre told me they were making a big movie in town & needed lots of makeup artists. He gave me the # to the local production office. I think the office help was new because they sent me straight to Peter Robb-Kings office. (That's kindda like sending someone auditioning as an extra straight to Michael Mann's office!) I was met at the door by a very sweet British gentleman whose ponytail & beard both almost reached his belt! He very kindly read my resume & even acted impressed. If I knew then what his resume consisted of, (Rocky Horror Picture Show, Aliens, Patriot Games & all the big ones!) I would have never shown him mine! He hired me on the spot! Peter always treated me as though he had complete confidence in me, on & off the set. He taught me a lot and gave me the opportunities of a lifetime! I called him twice after that for jobs. Once, for "Somersby", then "The Fugitive". Both times he gave me the jobs. Of everyone I have met in my brief film career, he will always be the special one ... Connie
