Talking 76 450SEL headlight problem

Went to have this car inspected and had an odd thing happen re the headlights. Both low beams worked fine, but when the high beam system was activated -- only the right front lights responded properly with full high beam. The left side went out totally. Also, the left front turn signal lamp does not light (I think that is just a loose connection at the bulb, but have to check more).

I am going to get into this by checking the bulbs and wiring, but wondered if anyone has any thoughts on the problem. The Serviceman thought there might be a separate fuse for the left side high beams, but I don't think so.
Any ideas?? Thanks, Ben Carter

Each light should have a seperate fuse!
