    Clue - "Is he alright?" - "Yes" - "Pity"
    2nd clue - Long chain molecules

    I'd have thought you'd get the 2nd census entry more quickly than the first.

    2.
    RG13/4805 f65 p24
    RG13/1599 f146 p28 - Got this one
    Clue - Woodstock town centre at night
    One of the great lines in this is said by the man in the second census entry above to the man in the first census entry "Mr Weech, You wouldn't joke about a sacred subject"

    3.
    RG13/81 f68 p19 - Got this one
    RG13/350 f159 p9 - Got this one
    Clue - Boccherini
    This one and the title of the production should lead to a connection to the others

    If anyone is still in doubt with this production another clue might be - Copenhagen Tunnel

    Not sure if I've got my knickers in a twist as what I now think is this title is what I thought was the link.

    Oooh - think I might have further inspiration about the link. In which case, back to the drawing board. (Yeh, just double-checked. Got mixed up with one of the names. )
    Still don't have a clue about the titles for 1 and 2 though.

    I think 3 Boccherini is the film.
    Not to sure about the others but think the link maybe to two comedy actors in the 1955 film and one serious but cant put my finger on it.

    You need a subscription/pay-to-view site such as Findmypast, The Genealogist, or Ancestry.
    Though I didn't know that you could search using a census ref on FreeCEN

    I used the folio and page numbers on freecen, not sure how to search for specific records on Ancestry.

    Finally got them all.
    It's all very well setting these quizzes Geoffers, but you must bear in mind that some of the pay-to-view-the-census sites ain't very hot on transcriptions.

    1.
    RG13/868 f41 p41 = Cecil Schwabe
    RG13/74 f129 p26 = Ernest Thesiger (indexed by A* as Thearger)
    Clue - "Is he alright?" - "Yes" - "Pity"

    Film = The man in the white suit

    2.
    RG13/4805 f65 p24 = George Relph (indexed by A* as Ralph)
    RG13/1599 f146 p28 = Stanley Holloway
    Clue - Woodstock town centre at night

    Film = The Titfield Thunderbolt

    3.
    RG13/86 f68 p19 = Katie Johnson
    RG13/350 f159 p9 = Horace John Waters (indexed by A* as Anna John Walen)
    Clue - Boccherini

    Film = The Ladykillers

    What links all three, who can be found in the above census returns and of the above who changed their names and to what?

    Connection = All produced at the Ealing Studios. (Not sure if they're all classed as Ealing comedies.)

    Cecil Schwabe became Cecil Parker, and Horace John Waters became Jack Warner.
