    That's impressive work, Phil. You are probably the reigning expert on this one by now. I know how hard you've worked over the years on it. I got about ten minutes in and burnt myself out!!

      Weirdest credit for Night to R.. Is for Sean Connery..its in Quinlan's fab book on BritishFilms1929-1959..every schoolboy knows that Sean isn't in it, probably carelessly confused with JohnCairney a fellow Scot.

      Sean Connery told Scott Palmer that he did appear in A Night to Remember.

      Maybe Sean was the milkman who delivered the milk to the cast & crew on set?

      (His first job was as a milkman with the St Cuthbert’s Co-Operative Society in Edinburgh.)
