    The end of the shots list describes the footage as mute, however there's natural sound from 01:07.

    At 02:14 John Parsons speaks to John Howard Davies, who he introduces as Oliver Twist, (the film role the boy has recently played).

    Seen right on the edge of the picture at 05:04, shaking hands, is Jack Warner.
