    "Preparation for Butchers 'Assignment Redhead" - for information, "Butchers" were a British film production and distribution company called Butchers Film Service.

    A number of film industry personalities are seen during the clip. They are........

    At 00:50, make-up artist Gerry Fairbank.

    At 01:13, continuity girl Yvonne Richards.

    At 01:20, veteran cinematographer Ernest Palmer.

    At 01:23, prolific director Maclean Rogers.

    At 01:31, British actor Brian Worth.

    "Gene Campbell" should read Jean Campbell.
