      • Miss Oberon's appearance on the program came about as the result of a chance meeting with producer Jack LeVien, at a supper party in Paris given by the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Le Vien was describing to the English actress the film he was making as a salute to Sir Winston Churchill's 90th birthday, and remarked that it was based on Churchill's book "Painting as a Pastime."

        Miss Oberon told Le Vien that she had a personally autographed copy of the book and furthermore related that some years ago, when she and Sir Winston were both guests at Lord Beaverbrook's villa in the south of France, Churchill had lent her an easel, a set of paints and had showed her how to use them.

        Le Vien promptly invited Miss Oberon to tell her story for his sound cameras, a suggestion she accepted enthusiastically. The following morning, Le Vien had cameras and recording equipment set up on the roof of her Paris hotel and filmed her telling the anecdote.

      • Among others appearing in the film to tell of Sir Winston's artistic career will be Field Marshall Viscount Montgomery, painter Paul Maze, Lady Birley and Sian Phillips (as Lady Lavery, the wife of painter Sir John Lavery).

      • Based on the book "Painting as a Pastime" by Winston S. Churchill.
