Jerry Verno
In New Comedy Feature

Michael Powell, who recently directed "Two Crowded Hours," has started work on his second British picture for Fox.

Under the title of "My Friend, The King," this new picture is now in production at Walton-on-Thames.

The cast includes Jerry Verno, who, as the taxi driver in "Two Crowded Hours," gave such an unforgettable comedy performance: Robert Holmes, Eric Pavit, Tracy Holmes, and Baroness Luli Hohenberg, who was brought over to England this year tp play the lead in "The Gat Princess" during its brief run at the Kingsway.
