      It is Michael Goodliffe, but as a "pretend Sherlock Holmes". But what is he in?

              Correction. Too many stages for Danzigers.
              Is it Worton Hall Studios?

                Exactly. From a film that Peter Sellers goes to see and gives him ideas for bumping off Constance Cummings. Goodliffe is "Holmes" and "Watson" is played by William Mervyn.

                  Looks like a model to me.

                    It's an overhead spy plane snap of a missile factory in Cuba masquerading as a vacuum cleaner wiring plan (Our Man in Havana, dir.Carol Reed).

                      It is an architect's model of a British studio.

                        Is it Pinewood where so many classic comedies were made?

                          Yes indeed - it's the original model of Pinewood of which 1/4 was never completed.

                              Where is the disused carpark on that photo? It was used to build Elsbels Hotel for Carry On Abroad.
