I found these on a French site. I am posting the link and hopefully the first one showing at the left above will be the pottery shop.. they seem to rotate sometimes, but there are several Susan Hayward video clips from Cannes, and the pottery shop clip is wonderful and seems more elaborate than the one I had remembered.. ya know.. more to it.
There is video software to download youtubes, but these are not youtubes, so don't know if youtube software would work... will look.. also, I have a video camera and will try to capture the clips on my camera if possible...even if it isn't perfect, it would be a way of preserving the info. You all will love these if you can download...good luck!

Bravo Ginger - thank you for that link. It worked fine as far as the video loading and playing ( the audio was barely audible, but it would presumably be 'en Francais' anyway, and the picture tells the story beautifully.)Clear images, no tech troubles - great viewing.
After the pottery one I clicked on the 'arrival at the airport'. That also loaded and played perfectly and it may resolve the question in the previous posts about whether Susan is arriving or leaving in the particular shot. I think it is the arrival.
If you watch that video - it seems that the photographers ask her to turn at a certain angle which makes her look as if ascending the stairs - but I'm sure her outfit is the same as in the photo - so I would guess at 'arriving'.
Kerry, that is great that you can see the videos! Yes, the narration is in french, but of course, a picture is worth a thousand words!..and Kerry, you are correct... I noticed that she was arriving also, so that mystery is resolved!
Thank you, Ginger! These videos are priceless!
WONDERFUL Ginger - what a find! It is coming through perfectly for me here too and the sound is perfect also. There is also quite a lot of views of Susan on the "Ambiance du Festival" link.
You can really see her natural beauty in these videos and it is a great pleasure to see them once more. She looked so tiny in real life. Fortunately, I have been able to "save" them to the computer this time around.
A while back I was talking with somone who was in the Royal Navy and actually at Cannes during May 1956. He saw Susan along with other celebrities outside one of the hotels being beseiged by photographers and said how beautiful she was and that she stood out from everyone else there. (A pity he hadn't a camera in his pocket!!)
Trish, do you have any directions as to how to save these to computer. I tried to right click and save but that didn't work..??
I have a place which says "Favorites" (even with American spelling) at the top of my Home Yahoo page. I just click (left) on that and it opens up to say ADD to favorites. Obviously, I have the video page open (but not running) at this point. It is a Godsend for sites I use all the time, such as yours!
Let me know how you get on with this.
Trish, thanks, but that will only save the page with the video on it as is.. if the owner of the page ever removes the video or closes the page, or if it's gone for any reason, then you won't have it at your disposal anymore. The video/s have to actually be saved itself to your computer, such as you save photos to your computer, but it's a little more complicated, and I'm going to try to find out. That's why for the time being, I am just going to try to record it from my camcorder..just point the camera at the screen while the video/s play...until I can figure out how to save the video to computer and then place on a cd.
my head is spinning again...lol
O.K. Ginger. Please let us all know when you come up with the answer.
okay.. in the meantime, we can continue to enjoy them as they are posted online.
I had stopped by to watch the videos you have found and I enjoyed every one of them. It is great to see her other than in movies.
Hi Ally! It's good to hear from you! Yes, I was excited to find those videos again. They had previously been posted on another site (yahoo videos, and then taken off, so thankfully, I got lucky). They are so beautiful and interesting, and I'm really happy that you have had a chance to see your grandmother in this unique way.
Hey Ginger, this is truly an awesome find. What a treasure to behold. All the videos came in clear as "crystal" I love Susan's arrival at the airport and trolling thru the pottery shop. The shop looked very old and ancient. At the fesitval does anyone know who the blonde gal with the glittery gown was?
I thought it was Mamie Van Doren, but I don't think so. I noticed Ginger Rodgers and
I thought I saw Gene Tierney? Did Jess stay at home?
At any rate, they are just great. I also did as Trish recommended by adding them to MY Favorites. Good job Ginger,
Ray - the girl with the glittery gown was Diana Dors -a famous British film star who also, unfortunately, succumbed to cancer in her fifties. She proved she was more than just a glamour girl with fine acting in a film called (I believe) Yield To The Night.
Jess wasn't with Susan as this was April and May 1956 and they separated in 1953.
These videos are so fascinating giving us a glimpse of Susan as we have never seen her. I can't stop playing them! Ginger you are a treasure with having found them again.
