    Robert Cummings I think. From a Twilight zone King Nine Will Not Return.

    Yes, it’s Bob Cummings- I reckon Paul was looking for his co-star, Julie Newmar!

    So what is this really all about?
    It looks like we’re making promo films for WeCanWorkItOut, etc.
    But, those weren’t shot in the U.S.
    Which studio is this and why?
    If Julie Newmar is around…
    Peggy Lipton better sharpen her claws.
    The cute Beatle is a cat lover…and, he’s wandering through cougar country.
    In fact, if that is Robert Cumming’s family, then, Bob has a good grasp of his own role at home. You might be a star when you go to work…but, The Beatles are in town…so, get on with it!

    I’m afraid that photo was taken during the filming of the Help! promo clip, the one included at the start of the movie.

    @A Car…
    Thanks for clearing the fog. I see clearly now…
    My logic was that if Robert Cummings is hanging out at the studio(possibly, w/family), then he must be close to home. I wonder how it is that the standard character actor from the U.S. can wield that kind of clout when he is so far from Hollywood. Is he British? To be allowed in the studio, usually requires employment. To be allowed in the studio with your family must involve political wrangling. But, to do all that w/ access to a Beatle…
    I’m not sure how that’s done. Cummings may be Royalty…

    The most ‘FANtastic’ info can be found in wiki’s ‘HIS-STORY’…
    As a high school student Cummings was taught to fly by Orville Wright(his Godfather). Later,
    “Cummings studied drama for two years before appearing on Broadway in 1931. As British actors were heavily in demand, Cummings traveled to England and learned to mimic an upper-class English accent. He had a brief career on Broadway under the name Blade Stanhope Conway, posing as an Englishman.”
    The career included years of steady television work…all done in Hollywood, but wiki never mentions anything else about England. So, maybe after The Beatles left Elvis’ house in L.A., they went over to Bob’s place for a nightcap…where Paul suggested stopping by Twickenham on November 23 to watch the filming. Maybe not…
    Anyway, wiki also says Cummings was the first official flight instructor in the United States. So maybe that’s what it takes to meet a Beatle at Twickenham(via Hollywood) during filming.
    I call that high-story…
    (who’s got my lighter?)

    What is your source for that info Talanca as it differs 100% from mine

    Cummings was in “Promise Her Anything,” which was filmed at Shepperton Studios and released in the UK in November 1965. No doubt he and his family were the for the premiere.
