Rex Harrison and Lilli Palmer

Oh what I crush I had on Rex Harrison… Here he is photographed with his wife, German actress Lilli Palmer in 1950. I like the way this photo has been composed, the way she’s lost in her own little world and he’s gazing adoringly at her from the background.   Having said that he was married six times and had numerous affairs, so perhaps they just caught him in one of the brief moments in which he adored her…? Or is that a little unfair?
