    The plane seen is a De Havilland DH.106 Comet, Registration Number G-ARJK.

    "Person greeting him makes a halo sign around his head" - this references Moore's TV role at the time as The Saint.

    Directly after that, and not currently mentioned in the shots list, Peter McEnery arrives with Hannah Gordon.

    "Goodlatte" is Jack Goodlatte, MD of ABC Cinemas.
