Whoops Sorry... Front title card displays incorrect name. Norah Roberts should obviously read Norah Howard. I have added an annotation to correct this.

Robertson Hare (born John Robertson Hare) was a British comedy actor who came to prominance on the stage in the famous Aldwych farces with Ralph Lynn and Tom Walls, in which he often lost his trousers. He appeared in the first of over 35 films in 1930 as Harold Twine in 'Rookery Nook'. Others included 'A Cuckoo in the Nest', 'A Cup of Kindness', 'Pot Luck', 'Banana Ridge', 'Our Girl Friday', 'The Young Ones' and 'Hotel Paradiso'. He was known as 'Bunny' to his friends and more modern audiences will remember him as Henry -- the Archdeacon in the BBC TV comedy All Gas and Gaiters (1966-1971). His catchphrases on stage, screen and TV were "Oh Calamity" and "Indubitably". This video extract is taken from the 1935 Gaumont-British production 'Car of Dream, which starred John Mills and Grete Mosheim. However, in this clip the stars have almost been excised to leave us instead with the brilliant Robertson Hare... Indubitably.
