Here to snip governmental red tape and complete arrangements to bring 60 youngsters from the Actors' Orphans' Home in London to a safe haven on this side of the Atlantic is Alfred Hitchcock.
He and Dame May Whitty head the members of the British colony in Hollywood who have raised funds to establish the young refugees in summer camp in Canada for the ensuing two months until plans are completed for their proposed transfer to Hollywood where certain of the Britishers will take a number of the children into their own homes or undertake the cost of their housing and schooling for the duration.
