Jeannie Elgar remembers the filming in Pimlico when she was a little girl and was actually in a crowd scene when they were told to cheer as the cars went by. In retrospect she believes that it could not have been an Oscar winning performance as it was cut! There was a nightclub along the embankment which the stars frequented, Jeannie asked for Kenneth More's autograph......but was refused!
