    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.
    Sorry

    Clue - "Is he alright?" - "Yes" - "Pity"

    This is where Alec Guinness gets hit on the head

    Kierlaw is the name of the character played by Ernest Thesiger

    Clue - Woodstock town centre at night

    After Stanley Holloway and Hugh Griffiths steal a train, they are seen driving it through Woodstock town centre.

    Mallingford is the name of a town in the film

    Clue - Boccherini

    The composer of the music repeatedly played through the film

    Copenhagen Tunnel - The character played by the wonderful Katie Johnson lived in a house (a set built for the film) on top of Copenhagen Tunnel.

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

    I got myself in a right tangle because I originally thought 'The Ladykillers' was the link. Got the Jack Warner name early on because although he was indexed incorrectly one of his sisters, Doris, was transcribed correctly.

    The reason I said 'And what is the connection to Boston Lincolnshire?' was because I thought that 'The Ladykillers' was the connection, and the second assistant editor on the film was Jim Clark, who was born in Boston. So he was in fact only connected to film three, and not all three.
    Though the make-up artist on 'The Titfield Thunderbolt' was Harry Frampton - and Frampton is a village about three miles from Boston.

    (Jim Clark, incidentally, went on to win both an Oscar and a BAFTA in 1985 for best film editing for 'The Killing Fields'.)

    I am overwhelmed to have won this amazing priceless prize. Thank you so much. Though I would have preferred to know where Henry was born, and the names of his parents - and of course, where they married, and the names of their parents.

    In fairness, I've just checked and Findmypast did get them all right. Not that that would have helped much until you gave the Mallingford and Kierlaw clues.
