    The man seen seated next to Picasso at 00:25 is the French novelist Jean Cocteau.

    The lady on Picasso's other side at 00:25 is his then model, and future wife, Jacqueline Roque.

    Cocteau is seen more clearly beside Picasso at 00:54, (he's the man with the tie).

    Further footage can be found in clip 537.26.
