Kendall recalls his screen test for "Rich and Strange"...

[Hitchcock] talked to me from behind the camera and would in the ordinary way have been asking me about my experience and for details of my career, but this time the coversation took a very Rabelaisian turn, and he kept me in fits of laughter so that I could hardly do more than stand in front of the camera and shake.
