Associated Press photograph showing filming of a scene from the film 'A Silken Affair' in Regent's Park, London. Caption on back reads: 'Cinema-goers will see a nice tidy close-up of David Niven, heavily disguised as a German, chatting with French actress Genevieve Page as they boat on the lake in Regent's Park, London. This photo shows just a little of the background to the scene. Four boats lashed togehter hold the camera crew and sound technicians, and their equipment. Confidential murmurs are carried along the microphone boom held out from camera focal point'.
