    "Susan Denburg" should read Susan Denberg.

    "Cushing having his hair styled and make-up done" - the hairstylist is Frieda Steiger, and the make-up man is George Partleton.

    And I concur with the previous user's IDs of Terence Fisher and Thorley Walters. Their names could replace the point in the body text that says "Cushing talking to two men, one is actor", perhaps with the words "Cushing talks to fellow actor Thorley Walters and the film's director Terence Fisher".
