Rita TushinghamEven though she knew she was working with acclaimed director David Lean and acting opposite the revered Sir Alec Guinness, Rita Tushingham probably no had idea that the three weeks she spent shooting scenes for the supporting role of The Girl in the epic, Oscar-winning 'Doctor Zhivago' would make her a permanent part of film history.
