    The filming of this clip took place over 2 days.

    In the first split second of this clip there's a flash frame of a slate telling us that filming took place on 13 September 1960.

    There's then a second slate at 00:45 detailing the filming date as 14 September 1960.

    "MS as Captain leaves his cabin" - if that IS the Captain then we're looking at Capt Harold G Bowen Jr, however I can find no photo to confirm this.
