colemanzone.com/Time_Machine_Project/filby.htmInterview with Alan Young Conducted by Don Coleman on October 19,1999 at the home of Alan Young in Studio City, CA. Alan Young as he appears today Don : At what point did you change your name from Angus to Alan. Alan : Well, I was very young. I was 19 years old when I came to America and they called me Agnus. They couldn't get the name right, in New York. And I'd say, "No that's Angus" and they'd say, "No, that's a cow." So when you are 19, you know, you don't like that so I changed it to Alan. Don : Do you have a Scottish background? Alan : Yes, we moved to Scotland when I was a little boy. Moved from England. I was born on the border. We moved to Edinburgh and then we sailed from Edinburgh to Canada. I'm Scottish really. Don : Have you ever gone to the Scottish Games in Orange County? Alan : No, but I've been to them here and in Canada. I used to play the bagpipes for the ones in Canada but I haven't been to Orange County, no. My sister is there and she goes. Don : Well maybe you can get down there some time. Alan : I will. Don : In your book, you mentioned that when George contacted you about doing "The Time Machine" that he told you that it would probably be a three week shoot? Did it turn out to be that way? Alan : Yes, about. It wasn't a hard three weeks. I suppose it was three weeks. Don : I wasn't sure if that was your part of it or the entire shoot. Alan : No, no, just my part with the cast. Then the part with Rod and Yvette took up the rest of the time. I don't know how long that took. Then the special effects, of course, would take up time. Don : I was curious as to what you were able to contribute to the characters of both Jamie and David Filby. Alan as 17 year old James Filby (Jamie) Alan : Well, I think that I wrote in the book that he paid me so little for "Tom Thumb", and he said, " you know when we do "Time Machine" I want you to do that character. Then when he called me up, when I was out here he said, "you'll do the part", but he said "I can't pay you as much money as I paid you for "Tom Thumb." But he said, "I'll let you do whatever you want with the character." So I said that I would like to make him Scottish and to do that, if you dye my hair red so that when my son comes in, he's got red hair too, so that we'll know the connection. So George said fine. Anything you said to George was fine. If he didn't like it he wouldn't say that, but it was fine. Play it anyway you like. Scottish, it'd be good. George meeting Jamie in 1918. Don : I really enjoyed the accent. Alan : Well Rod was English, or Australian, but he had a more English accent. And then we had another two Englishmen in there so I thought well that's fine so let's put a Scotsman in there. Don : Did you pick that up when you were living in Scotland? Alan : My father had an accent. I had a slight accent when I was raised in Canada as I was raised in a Scottish community and you just don't loose it. So, but I had lost it when I came to America, intentionally. But I just went back to my old accent. Alan as David Filby Don : I was wondering if you recall which order the sequences were shot in? I know a lot of the time scenes are often shot totally out of sequence. Alan : Yeah. George tried to shoot in sequence as I recall. I have the shooting schedule packed away somewhere. I have a couple copies of the original scripts. I think the opening scene around the table was the first one we shot. In fact, I am pretty certain because he had the big cast and to save money you get rid of the big cast as soon as you can. Don : Right. Alan : So he did those scenes, then the scene in the living room was next and the others fell into sequence. Don : Ok, I see. Did they do a life mask on you for the old age makeup? Were there appliance pieces made for you? Alan : Yes, I think they did a life mask. I had it done for some show or picture. Maybe it was that one. I know when I played myself, when I played Filby, at the age of , no it wouldn't be Filby it would be his son, at the age of 90 or so, they had rubber. I got made up in the morning for the whole day's shoot and they put the rubber stuff on me and we were shooting out of doors and the makeup man gave me a bottle of spirit gum and said that's to stick the pieces back on if they come off cuz I can't go out there with you because George can't afford a second man. They didn't shoot my scene until three in the afternoon and you could almost see the gutta percha showing because bits were pulling off. I had to stick it back on. It wasn't a full mask it was just pieces. Alan in old age makeup for the 1966 sequence. Don : I assumed that it was just probably bags under the eyes and that type of thing. Alan : Yeah and if he had waited, I could have had my own! But finally George said I can't shoot a close-up because I can see the rubber pieces peeling off. Don : Right. Alan : That man was brilliant. I don't know how he did it. Don : Did they do makeup tests on you for that? Alan : No we didn't. He just didn't have the time or the money. He knew how to make up an old man so that was that. He knew what he wanted. I forget the makeup man. He was a good makeup man. Don : Bill Tuttle? Alan : Yeah, Bill Tuttle! He knew what he was doing. Don : Do you recall how long it took to put that on? Alan : It wasn't a short time. Maybe an hour or so. Don : Did they take it off for you or did they leave you to your own devices to remove it? Alan : I don't recall. I think that I took it off myself. Just peel it off and throw it away, that's all. Don : Now a days they pamper everybody. Alan : Oh yes, well they did then with a show that had a budget but M.G.M. was going broke then and they knew George Pal would always make up for any deficiencies in the production. Which he did. So they let him do it. You know, if you can do the job they let you do it. Don : Just as long as it doesn't cost them anymore money. Alan : Absolutely, that way they don't have to pay anymore. Don : In the opening sequence when you are walking across the street from the department store to George's house, you are almost run over by a person on a bicycle... Alan : Oh yeah. Don : Is that you doing the voice saying "Excuse me, Mr. Filby"? It sounds very much like you. I always wondered if it was you. ...In fact, I am pretty certain because he had the big cast and to save money you get rid of the big cast as soon as you can.| Alan :||No, as I say George was pretty sure what he wanted and we were pretty sure to do it that way because that was what he wanted!..

angelfire.com/nd/domneal/powar.htmlJohn Thomas MURRAY 1905 - 1981NEW ZEALAND 2nd ECHELON 7th ANTI TANK REGIMENT.No. 25703STALAG XVIIIAKRIEGSGEFANGENER "Prisoner of War" REMEMBERED WITH HONOUR They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them. The Europe Star, The Africa Star, Victory Medal, The New Zealand Defence Medal. To be taken prisoner in war must be a devastating experience. The wonder is that the morale of all servicemen in Prisoner of War camps reached and maintained such heights. The stories of hardships and frustration are outshone by the discipline, self-control and generous collaboration, which helped so many to survive and to keep alive the determination never to give in. It was also thanks to that comradeship in adversity that there were so many attempts to escape. Prisoners had a very hard time, but the life of a prison guard was never allowed to be easy. For those of us who were fortunate enough to avoid capture, it is almost impossible to imagine what it must have been like. We can read about it and watch films about it, but it is only others with that experience, who can begin to understand what it meant to be caged in a Prisoner of War camp. It seems to me that one of the great values of the National Ex-Prisoner of War Association must be its unique ability to fully comprehend the problems and the needs of its members. The knowledge that there is an organisation 'out there' which can offer the right kind of help at the right time as they get older and more vulnerable must be a great comfort for its members. His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh. 2nd February 2001. Excerpt: German Field Orders on the use of Firearms against Prisoners of War: "THE SERVICE REGULATIONS FOR PRISONER OF WAR AFFAIRS DO NOT PROVIDE FOR ANY WARNING SHOTS. SHOULD THE OCCASION FOR THE USE OF FIREARMS ARISE, THEY MUST BE FIRED WITH THE INTENT TO HIT". CAPTURED IN GREECE The Battle of Kalamata which took place on 28th April, 1941, in the southern Peloponnese in Greece although almost unknown by most New Zealanders, was the scene of the final and fiercest clash during the battle for Greece in 1941. It would seem that many veterans of this campaign were incarcerated at Stalag XVIII. It also appears that when the evacuation of Greece by Allied troops became inevitable, organised fighting troops were given priority in the evacuation. Ultimately around 10,000 troops, made up from administrative and support servicemen, together with isolated fighting groups were left on the beaches at Kalamata, Mount Olympus, and Corinth Canal to become prisoners of war. There were British, Australian, New Zealand and Greek men within this group. After many adventures, it seems that most of these passed the rest of the war in Stalag XVIIIA or one of its satellite camps. It seems that some allied prisoners taken at the fall of Crete were also interned at Stalag 18. Crete was the scene of the first major parachute invasion of the War. Although it was ultimately successful, so many German parachute troops died in the attack that Hitler decided against using such tactics for the rest of the War. The British, however, did not learn from this and many British parachute troops were to suffer at Arnhem towards the end of the War). A British man Mr. Horlington who is the secretary of The Brotherhood of Veterans of the Greek Campaign 1940-41, and friends have been responsible for the erection of a marble and bronze memorial at Kalamata.It would seem that many veterans of this campaign were incarcerated at Stalag XVIII. The inscription reads: IN MEMORY OF THE ALLIED FORCES AND GREEKS WHO FELL AT THE BATTLE OF KALAMATA, 28 April 1941, OR WHO WERE TAKEN PRISONER OR ESCAPED TO FIGHT AGAIN THAT THE WORLD MIGHT BE FREE. Artillery of the New Zealand Second Echelon comprised. The 5th FIELD, 31st BATTERY, 32nd BATTERY and 7th ANTI-TANK. Since 2-pounder anti-tank guns were difficult to come by in England, the anti-tank gunners trained with 18-pounders and French 75-mm left over from World War 1. They held their first anti-tank shoot at Waiouru at end of Feb 1940. They left Wellington 2 May 1940 on the Aquitania with Maj RC Queree temporarily commanding. Commanding Officer: LtCol CSJ Duff Oct 1940 - May 1941. Main engagements: Greece, Libya, CRUSADER, Syria, Minqar Qaim, Alamein, SUPERCHARGE, Tripoli, Tunisia, Italy. The Regiment took part in every campaign in which the 2nd NZ Division was involved except Crete.The bulk of the Regiment was evacuated direct from Greece to Egypt. The Regiment was disbanded in Italy on 15 December 1945. Men of the 7th Anti-tank used: 2-pounder anti-tank guns 6-pounder anti-tank guns 17-pounder anti-tank guns 18-pounder field guns 4.5-inch howitzers 75-mm French field guns 4.2-inch heavy mortars M10 self-propelled guns They also lifted mines, laid smoke canisters, went into action with small arms and maintained beacons to guide night bombers. Between 1940 and 1945, 6068 New Zealanders died on active service in Europe and 513 died in captivity. EMBARCATION FROM NEW ZEALAND.By Ivan Dominikovich On the 15th of May 1940 my Uncle Jack Murray enlisted in the 10th Reinforcements Royal New Zealand Artillery. On the 15 Mar 1941 L/Bdr Jack Murray arrived in Suez Egypt a member of the 7th Anti Tank Regiment, a few weeks at Maadi Camp and he was on his way to Greece. When Greece capitulated in late April the order to evacuate all Allied troops was given. We then had terrible news, Jack was missing in action. He was fighting with his unit in the Corinth Canal area which is a waterway that runs through a dramatic gorge, that divides the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland. There was only one road bridge crossing this formidable natural obstacle. It could not be crossed by any other means because of the sheer sides of the cliffs. In the early hours of the 26th April 1941, gliders and JU-52 transport aircraft left airfields in occupied Greece and Albania for the short journey to Corinth. At daybreak, several DFS-230 light assault gliders landed on the approaches to the bridge. On the afternoon of the 27th, the German 3rd Battalion, 2nd Regiment jumped in to secure the area surrounding Corinth and mop up any resistance still left. The Germans lost 63 killed, 16 missing and 174 wounded in the operation. Various points along the coast were attacked and bombed by the Germans pursuing the ANZAC troop withdrawal. The British themselves bombed the Corinth Canal and blew up the remaining bridges in their retreat. The New Zealanders set up machineguns at Thermopylae in an attempt to cover the ANZAC retreat and were bombed, and then captured, by the German advance. New Zealand lost 300 killed in Greece and a further 1800 troops were taken prisoner. Everyone at home of course thought the worst about Uncle Jack, and not a word was heard until the 28th of June 1941 when a cable from Red Cross in Geneva Switzerland annouced that he was interned in a Prison Camp in Austria. They also broadcast over the neutral Vatican Radio with information supplied from the German Red Cross, we heard the news over the radio one Sunday morning, which confirmed that John T Murray No 25703 of New Zealand was a prisoner of war in a Stalag in Austria. Members of his unit were left behind in the retreat and were on the run in the Greek hills in the Corinth Canal area from the Germans for nearly a month. Jack and his mate found an abandoned vehicle which contained army pay, they carefully hid the money before they realised it was occupation money and valueless. Eventually about 50 allied soldiers were in a loose group hiding in the hills, food was supplied by Greek peasants and farmers, when they awoke one morning they were surrounded by armed troops and were rounded up. A horrific slow journey by train, fifty men to a cattle wagon, up through Greece and Yugoslavia to Austria followed, with some of them dying on the way. They suffered cold, hunger, and lack of sleep as the train made its way up through Yugoslavia to Marburg in Austria and the final destination of Stalag 18A at Wolfsberg. The Camp Commandants, name was Hauptmann Steiner. It was on Hitlers orders that the German troops capture prisoners of war in Greece, so that they could get the benefit of the propaganda and publicity. It appears most of the British and Commonwealth POW's were housed in an old stable, divided into two with an ablution area in the middle, the other prisoners were in wooden huts, each holding about thirty men. As the numbers of prisoners increased more huts were supplied, each hut was filled with three-tier bunks and a stove in the middle. Russian POW's began to arrive at Stalag XVIIIA soon after Germany invaded Russia in 1941. These men were in a very poor state, most having traveled more than a thousand miles with very little food. Unfortunately they brought typhus into the camp and many prisoners died of the disease before it could be brought under control by the British doctors. Russia was not a signatory to the Geneva Convention and so these prisoners received no Red Cross parcels or gifts from home. Every day a sack would be circulated around the British compound for any food that could be spared but this was far too little for so many. Jack was to be a prisoner for 4 and half long years, escaping for a brief period on one occasion. Prisoners did not usually stay long in Stalag 18A, at this time as it was a clearing camp for the scores of working camps throughout Austria. Within a few days of arrival he was sent on a Work Party known as Arbeitskommando to a farming area as labour for the farmers. He sometimes worked on farms to bring in the Grape harvest, they used to sneak bottles of grape leavings at the botton of the barrels back to camp and water it down to a drinkable wine. Really the work in its self was slave labour, because it was no work, no food. Jack said most of the farmers treated them all rig...Ultimately around 10,000 troops, made up from administrative and support servicemen, together with isolated fighting groups were left on the beaches at Kalamata, Mount Olympus, and Corinth Canal to become prisoners of war. They also broadcast over the neutr..
