Admin HistoryPamela Davies (1922-1986) was a continuity supervisor working in the British film industry from the 1940s to the 1980s. Continuity supervisors worked closely with the director on set and ensured continuity from shot to shot. The position was invariably female and Pamela Davies was one of the leading lights within the craft. She worked closely on a number of films by Joseph Losey as well as titles such as 'Richard III', 'Oliver!'. 'Judith' and many others. The collection is significant in shedding a light on below the line female labour in the film industry in this period.
