Notes: 1. In 1940, at the age of 65, Edmund Gwenn moved to Hollywood for a highly successful career, which included winning the academy award as Best Supporting Actor in "Miracle On 34th Street" (1947). 2. The opening credits incorrectly list actor D.A. Clarke-Smith as D.R. Clarke-Smith 3. Sadly actress Aileen Marson died during child birth. Luckily, a few years ago, by means of transfers of her 9.5mm film appearances, it was possible for the daughter to eventually see her mother 'on screen'. 4. A 9.5mm sound transfer is available on DVD at £5.95 plus 90p UK postage from myself - see the sales lists on this web-site.
