Also included among Coward's "all-star" friends is Earl Mountbatten of Burma, who interjects some information on how Noel Coward came to write his wartime naval film epic, In Which We Serve. Sequences from some of Coward's stage plays and films < including movie versions of his plays) are also seen in the hour special: Words and Music, an early stage musical in which John Mills was a young song and dance man; and (movies): Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard in Brief Encounter, Coward in an action sequence from In Which We Serve; Rex Harrison, Kay Hammond and Margaret Rutherford in Blithe Spirit.

Famous English cartoonist Osbert Lancaster supplied special drawings to illustrate two of the musical numbers: Mad Dogs and Englishmen, and The Stately Homes of England. As the film special unfolds, some little-known facts about Coward emerge: In liis early life, he suffered two serious con cussions, the second developing into a brain tumor; he wrote the song, I'll See You Again, in 20 minutes while stuck in a cab in a London traffic jam: another popular Coward song. A Room With a View, was written on shipboard, while anchored in You Can't Beat The Leader In Food .

PHONE 327-7511 Honolulu harbor; Bitter Sweet was the musical play that gave him the most personal satisfaction; he wrote the hit play, Private Lives, in four days while recuperating from the 'flu - "and not a line was changed"; he once offered the young Richard Burton a role in a recording of Conversation Piece, and "persuaded" Burton to do it for $200. ("You will do Conversation Piece for $200, and you will like it.") Coward's clipped way of speaking was a result of trying to encourage his mother (who was deaf) to lip read. According to Yul Brynrier, Coward has the knack of being able "to make you laugh at yourself." Edith Evans recalls that "when Noel was out front (in the audience). I always fluf-' fed my lines." Coward says his major satisfaction in a lifetime of show business has been just "to know you're among people you love, and who love you." This Is Noel Coward was written, produced and directed by an independent London producer, Charles Castle, and originally telecast cn the BBC in England last spring (1972). .
