Technical problems

Denis Norden reveals in his book “Clips from my Life” that he was once acting as relief manager at Troxy, and the organ’s lift mechanism failed. The organist had to remain perched up in the air during the film, whilst all available staff searched the cinema for the particular winch handle that would wind down the organ manually.

Norden worked for Gaumont Super Cinemas, and was the Assistant Manager at the Trocadero, Elephant & Castle and then General Manager at the Gaumont, Watford, before he started his TV career.
